It was ugly the entire game.
Lakers lost for the second straight year on Christmas Day. Both games came against Lebron.
Good thing it’s only December and this game has no impact on how teams play in the playoffs. It would of been nice to beat the “Big 3” and the Heat.
Miami Heat can out shooting the entire game and the Lakers couldn’t recover. The Heat’s biggest lead of the game, 16, came in the 4th quarter.
Kobe struggled from the field only shooting 6-for-16 for 17 points. And Pau Gasol didn’t help with his worst first half of his career with the Lakers. He was 3-for-11 in the first half and finished 8-for-17 with 17 points.
The Big 3 combined for 69 points and Lebron had his 31st career Triple-Double.
Too bad Lebron can’t perform like this in the playoffs or else he’d have a championship.
The second straight blowout at home this week for the Lakers. Phil Jackson will fix this before the playoffs start. Do Not Panic!
Box Score: Lakers 80 Heat 96
