Shannon Sharpe, a former NFL player, is confident that the Los Angeles Lakers will advance to the Western Conference finals by defeating the Golden State Warriors in Game 6 of their series.

Sharpe is predicting a "virtuoso" performance from LeBron James, which he believes will be the key to securing the victory.

Although the Warriors dominated Game 5, Sharpe points out that the Lakers still hold a 3-2 lead in the series. The analyst has called for more aggressive offensive play from the Lakers in Game 6.

Sharpe cites the team's poor free-throw performance in the previous game, where they only had 15 attempts, as evidence.

During the regular season, the Lakers had the best free-throw rate in the league, with an average of 26.6 attempts per game.

Sharpe also challenged Anthony Davis to take control of the game, urging him to assert himself against Warriors' forward Draymond Green.

Davis is expected to play in Game 6 after being sidelined with a head injury during Game 5. He has been a dominant force throughout the series, averaging 22.4 points, 13.4 rebounds, and 2.2 blocks.

Sharpe believes that James, despite his advancing age and slightly diminished athleticism this postseason, will deliver a memorable performance in Game 6.

The four-time MVP is averaging 23.6 points, 8.8 rebounds, and 4.8 assists against the Warriors. The Lakers and Warriors will face off in Game 6 at 10 PM ET on Friday night.

Sharpe is confident that the Lakers will come out on top and advance to the conference finals, thanks in large part to a standout performance from James.
