Winning Time Storyline
The series recounts the 1980s Los Angeles Lakers basketball team’s professional and personal life, both on and off the court.
The last act of the seventh episode sets the setting for the Los Angeles Lakers to meet the Boston Celtics. However, the squad enters the game with little confidence and a poor record.
Additionally, Westhead doubts his capacity to guide the Lakers to success. Westhead and Riley spend the whole night devising a tactic for defeating the Celtics. Riley and Westhead, on the other side, have an altercation that acts as a wake-up call for Westhead. He recognizes that more than his career is at stake.
The game begins as the Los Angeles Lakers establish an early lead against the Boston Celtics. Westhead’s plan of keeping Bird quiet appears to be effective. On the other side, Bird begins to penetrate the minds of the LA Lakers’ players, and the game’s tide begins to shift. The Celtics seize control of the game.
Additionally, the referee is biased in favor of the Celtics, compounding the Lakers’ concerns. Riley and Westhead lose their composure and begin verbally abusing the referee.
Riley takes responsibility and is led off the courtroom on the other side. As a result, he delegates Westhead with the task of turning things around.
Westhead assumes a dominant posture and urges his team to battle back on the byline. After ignoring Spencer Haywood for much of the season, he throws in the power center whose toughness boosts the Lakers’ comeback in the game. Magic and Kareem continue working well together, moving the Lakers closer to the Celtics.
The Lakers lead by just one goal with 14 seconds left. Cooper ultimately scores the game-winning goals and the Lakers victory against all odds. Despite winning the game by a sharp margin, Westhead keeps his job for the time being.
