The Los Angeles Lakers were called upon to face the aggressive Miami Heat zone defense in the Game 2 win over the South Beach franchise.
The Lakers attempted 47 threes, which are the most by any team in a Finals’ game. Frank Vogel’s team made 16 of them to prevail against their resilient opponent.
Furthermore, Anthony Davis and LeBron James combined for 65 points to lead the Lakers safely to another win, which is bringing the franchise two victories away from their 18th NBA title.
LeBron and AD became the Lakers first duo since Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal to score 30+ points in a Finals’ game.
The Lakers win Game 2 124-114, taking a NBA Finals record 47 3’s.
