The Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Golden State Warriors 103-100 in a play-in game to clinch the Western Conference’s seventh seed late Wednesday.
LeBron James led the Lakers to a triple-double with 22 points, 11 rebounds, and 10 assists after making the game-winning 3-pointer with 58.2 seconds left.
For the winning team, Anthony Davis had 25 points and 12 rebounds, while Alex Caruso had 14 points and Dennis Schroder had 12 points.
Stephen Curry had a game-high 37 points for the losing team, while Andrew Wiggins had 21.

In the first round, the winner of the Warriors vs. Grizzlies battle will face the No. 1 seeded Utah Jazz.
