LeBron James guides LA Lakers to play-offs with play-in win over Golden State Warriors


LeBron James made a game-winning shot with 58 seconds remaining to ensure the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Golden State Warriors in the new ‘play-ins’ format and secured a place in the Western Conference play-offs.

James shot a 34-foot three-pointer to claim a 103-100 win, despite struggling to see after a foul to the face.

LA face the second-seeded Phoenix Suns in the play-offs on Sunday.

“I was literally seeing three rims out there,” James, 36, said.

James received treatment after he appeared to be poked in the eye by Draymond Green with two minutes left in the game.

He was given eye drops but admitted he was unable to focus on making the shot.

“I just shot at the middle rim and I was able to, with the grace from the man above, knock it down,” he said.

His team-mate Anthony Davis joked afterwards that the Lakers “might need to poke LeBron in his eye a lot more to hit shots like that”.

Stephen Curry scored 37 points but it was not enough for the Warriors, who must beat the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday to advance.

The Grizzles beat the San Antonio Spurs 100-96 in their play-ins game to set up the meeting. The winners will become the eighth seeds and play the top-seeded Utah Jazz in the first round of the play-offs. The losers are eliminated.

Giroud agrees deal to leave Chelsea

Chelsea striker, Olivier Giroud, has agreed on a deal to sign for AC Milan, according to Sky Italia.

The 34-year-old’s contract at Stamford Bridge was due to expire at the end of this month.

But the Blues triggered an option to extend Giroud’s deal for another year.

However, the Champions League winners are still open to selling Giroud this summer and AC Milan are believed to be leading the race.

Giroud has now agreed a two-year contract with AC Milan worth €3.5 million (£3m) a year plus bonuses.

The two clubs are however yet to settle on a fee, but the player is hoping Chelsea will allow him to leave on a free transfer.
