Map Shows A Majority Of The United States Is Rooting For The Lakers

The Lakers & Heat are in a bubble away from all the fans but, that doesn't stop fans from showing off who they support in these NBA Finals.

A map that was just released from shows that 42 states are cheering for the Lakers to win their first tile since 2010, while only eight states are supporting the Miami Heat. The map was created using over 100,000 geotagged tweets gathered in the last week, including fan hashtags like #LakeShow, #LakersNation, and #HeatCulture.

The Lakers last night won a very close Game 4 against the Miami Heat. LeBron James finished with 28 points on 8-for-16 shooting, plus 12 rebounds and eight assists. Davis had 22 points on 8-for-16 shooting, with nine rebounds, four assists and four blocks. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope had 15 points on 6-for-12 shooting, including a crucial layup late in the fourth quarter.

On Friday, the Lakers could clinch their 17th championship win that would tie them with the Boston Celtics with the most ever in the NBA.
