Beginning in Seattle, the Lakers dropped Game 1 by 14 points to fall behind in the series; however, they came back and allowed just 68 points to steal an away game and take the series back to Los Angeles. Back at home, the Lakers took Games 3 and 4 to put them on the verge of clinching the series back in Seattle.

Lakers’ center Shaquille O’Neal dominated Game 5 with 31 points, nine rebounds, eight blocks and four assists to lead the team in a 110-95 victory that clinched the series and sent the Lakers to the Western Conference Finals.
