The 1951–52 NBA season was the franchise's 6th season in the NBA. The NBA widened the foul lane before the 1951–52 season in an attempt to slow down George Mikan. Despite the change, it had little effect on Mikan. He still averaged 23.8 points per game, although he lost the scoring title to Paul Arizin, from the Philadelphia Warriors. [http://www.nba.com/lakers/history/lakers_history_new.html#5 LAKERS: Los Angeles Lakers History ] ] The Lakers went into the campaign with essentially the same lineup. Rochester took first place in the Western Division by a game, but the Lakers ousted the Royals in four games in the division finals. The NBA Finals would have the Lakers oppose the New York Knickerbockers.Games 3 and 4 of the Finals were played at the 69th Regiment Armory instead of at Madison Square Garden. This was due to the fact that the circus was in town. The teams split those games, and Games 5 and 6 as well. Game 7 was dominated by Minneapolis. The Lakers pounded out an 82–65 win at home to claim their second NBA crown in three years.
