It was amazing the Lakers stayed as close to the Heat as they did in the first half — they opened the game with four straight turnovers, had 9 in the first quarter and 16 for the half. Usually that spells highlight dunks for the Heat and doom for their opponent.

Well, it did spell highlight dunks for the Heat — above is Miami’s first eight points from their win over the Lakers.

LeBron James and Dwyane Wade border on unstoppable in the open court, and when you give the Heat easy points like this you pay a serious price. The Lakers almost got away without paying, they did for 45:30. But those last 2:30 were a very different story.

    An unreal start to the game last night. When Miami is active defensively, they get so many deflections and steals. L.A. had no hope of stopping them in the open court.

    LBJ OWNED the Staples Center !

    If the MVP is based on the “BEST OVERALL PERFORMER” – LBJ is a lock to win it this year too.

    Over the course of this season he is leading Durant in EVERY category but scoring. Where he trails by only a few points. LBJ has 1001 total points and Durant has 1120 total points. But LBJ is shooting at 55% vs Durant’s 52%.

    But all the other VALUABLE categories, LBJ is better than Durant:

    Boards (8.2 vs 6.9), Assists (6.9 vs 4.2), Turnovers (2.9 vs 3.1), 3 point % (41% vs 37%) and Field Goal % (55 % vs 52%)

    Dude is the best we have in the league…..PERIOD !
