October 10, Beijing time,
The Lakers can win this victory, but the Heat will not easily admit defeat, the game was very fierce from the beginning. LeBron played amazing dominance in the penalty area last game, and today he also led the team to constantly hit the basket. Not only did he succeed with the ball, he also helped Popper score 2+1 at 8 minutes and 06 seconds.
湖人可以赢得这场胜利，但热火不会轻易承认失败，比赛从一开始就非常激烈。勒布朗在上一场比赛的禁区发挥了惊人的统治力，今天他还带领球队不断上篮得分。他不仅在接球上取得了成功，还帮助波普尔在8分钟零06秒得分2 + 1。
When he assisted Davis for a dunk, he grabbed the rebound and scored at 6:04. However, when he rested, the Heat beat the score 9-0. LeBron returned in the last 48 seconds and quickly completed a tip-up. In the end, the Lakers fell behind by 1 point in the first quarter. LeBron scored 6 points, 2 rebounds and 2 assists on 3 of 4 shots, with an efficiency value of +7.
At the beginning of the second quarter, the Heat shot a wave of 6-0 aggressively. LeBron made a 3-pointer at 10:47 and barely stopped the bleeding. But the Heat came, and Herro quickly returned a three-pointer, and the Heat expanded the wave to 11-3.
After half a quarter, no one except LeBron scored a sports goal for the Lakers. This is a very bad situation. At 7 minutes and 01 seconds, LeBron hit a three-pointer under pressure, and then scored at 6 minutes and 05 seconds. The Heat seemed to let him shoot from the outside.
Until 4 minutes and 16 seconds, Caruso finally hit a three-pointer, and the ball also came from LeBron's assist. At 3 minutes and 24 seconds, LeBron made a breakthrough again, dragging the score with his own strength. From the beginning of this ball, the Lakers played a wave of 8-0 close, and the Lakers finally played a familiar fast-break counterattack rhythm. Although the Lakers were still behind at halftime, LeBron scored 21 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists on 9 of 11 shots, without any turnovers and fouls, and his performance was beyond criticism.
At the beginning of the second half, LeBron assisted Pope for a three-pointer, and he soared at 9:05. The Lakers were only 1 point behind. Even Van Gundy, who explained the game, was emotional. He still remembers how the Spurs' Bowen boldly put LeBron on the outside in 2007, but now, LeBron’s outside shots are deadly.
LeBron did focus his shots on the outside, 5 minutes and 43 seconds into the three-pointer, and 4 minutes and 03 seconds LeBron grabbed the frontcourt, assisted Kuzma to break through and score, which can be found in the Heat's oppressive defense. The opportunity is already very difficult. The score remained stalemate until the end, and the Lakers failed to overtake.
Robinson's three-pointer at the beginning of the fourth quarter put the Lakers behind by 9 points, and then Morris and LeBron were prevented from passing the ball. At 10 minutes and 17 seconds, LeBron scored another three-pointer, but then he was intercepted by Butler. The turnover problem has bothered him in this series, but under this defensive intensity, it is indeed very difficult for LeBron to find teammates to cooperate.
At 9:05, LeBron was again caused by Robinson to make a dribbling error. The Lakers failed to challenge the referee. He made 3 errors in 3 minutes. The Lakers were in a critical situation. After the timeout, LeBron helped
At 6 minutes and 20 seconds, LeBron assisted Pope to hit a three-pointer, then steal Butler, leading the Lakers to a 9-0 lead again at the most critical time.
The Heat are still stubbornly catching up. The Lakers trailed by 2 points in the last 3 minutes. LeBron was fouled for rebounding and made two free throws to tie. At this time, both teams tried their best. After Butler succeeded, LeBron also made a breakthrough 2+1. Butler made another throw, and LeBron made another tip.
热火仍然顽强地追赶。湖人队在最近3分钟内落后2分。勒布朗因篮板被犯规，两罚两平。此时，两个团队都尽了最大的努力。巴特勒成功后，勒布朗也取得了2 + 1的突破。巴特勒又掷了一次，勒布朗又给了另一个提示。
Even Butler is too tired to breathe, let alone LeBron who is 36, but at this time they can only insist. In the last 21 seconds, Davis stood up and scored key rebounds and made a tip. The Lakers only led by 1 point.
The game inevitably reached the final round of the final round. After 1 point behind, the Lakers called for a final timeout. LeBron chose to trust his teammates and attract three-man defense to create a completely open three-pointer for Green, but Green did not make it. Although the Lakers got the frontcourt, they didn't get out of bounds. The Lakers could only foul. Herro made two free throws, the Lakers trailed by 3 points, with only 1.6 seconds left, and they did not pause. LeBron's hastily missed a three-pointer and the game ended.
