NBA Twitter reacts to Lonnie Walker IV’s heroic Game 4 performance

The Los Angeles Lakers put a huge win in their column on Sunday when they claimed a 104-101 triumph over the Golden State Warriors in Game 4 of the Western Conference semifinals to take a 3-1 series lead.

They did so the ugly way — by getting key stops down the stretch, pulling down key rebounds and with good old-fashioned hustle and grit. They overcame a 12-point deficit in the third quarter, as well as a foreboding feeling that the Warriors were on their way to victory.

But the one thing that was pretty was Lonnie Walker IV’s game.

After falling out of the team’s rotation a few months ago, he started getting minutes again over the last couple of games, and in Game 4, he got hot in the fourth quarter while showing the guts of a champion. He went 6-of-9 from the field to score 15 points, with all of his shot attempts and makes coming in the final 12 minutes.

He was the hero of the game, and fans on Twitter were happy for him.
