The Lakers lost Game Five by 30 points without Davis, so they may have realized they had no chance of winning Game Six without him. The Lakers track this series 3-2, and if they lose on Thursday, the season will end and the championship defense in the first round against their rival Suns.

This entire series was defined by injuries. Chris Paul injured his shoulder in Game 1, and despite performing excellently in Game 4, he has mostly struggled in other games.
