Game 6 - Lakers 114, 76ers 104

The Lakers jumped out to a nine-point lead at halftime, but the 76ers were able to stay close throughout the second half, before a late Lakers run clinched the game and the title for Los Angeles. Bob McAdoo, known primarily for his offense, made a key defensive play in the second half, blocking a potential go-ahead layup by Julius Erving, and keeping the Lakers out in front.

Jamaal Wilkes led the Lakers with 27 points, while Magic Johnson, who earned series MVP honors, had a triple-double with 13 points, 13 rebounds and 13 assists. McAdoo, who finished as the runner-up to Johnson in the MVP voting, had 16 points, nine rebounds and three blocked shots, winning the first championship of his Hall of Fame career.

Andrew Toney led all scorers with 30 points for the 76ers and Erving added 29. The other three 76ers starters combined for just 24 points. Darryl Dawkins had 10 points and just one rebound in 20 minutes before fouling out in what would turn out to be his final game as a 76er.
