Tyler Herro demonstrated his scoring prowess with 21 points. In contrast, Duncan Robinson’s late fourth-quarter run, including 11 of his 13 points scored during that quarter alone, powered the Miami Heat past their Los Angeles Lakers opponents by 110-96.

Miami showed outstanding team effort, with all eight players contributing double-digit scores – Jaime Jaquez Jr. registered 16 points, while Nikola Jovic and Bam Adebayo each added 15.

While Miami had maintained control for most of the game, Los Angeles managed to mount an unexpected comeback, narrowing their deficit to just three with 10:46 remaining in the fourth quarter thanks to Christian Wood’s 3-point play. Miami responded strongly and went on a 10-2 run that featured 3-pointers from Robinson and Jaquez that eventually won them outright.

Erik Spoelstra recognized Robinson’s perimeter shot as the pivotal moment, noting how they ran their offence through him and Adebayo during the fourth quarter. They sealed victory with an outstanding 15-6 run to snap their two-game losing streak and claim an important win against the Orlando Heat.

Miami found their groove down the stretch, connecting on 14 of 24 field goals, including 6 of 11 long-range efforts en route to a comfortable victory.

Robinson commented upon his late-game resurgence after reflecting upon the game: “It was better late than never. After being mostly nonexistent for three quarters, I came alive again and kept on unleashing.”

The Lakers struggled from the perimeter, shooting only 4 for 30 on 3-point attempts and committing 15 turnovers in the opening half. Anthony Davis shined bright with 29 points and 18 rebounds – joining Joel Embiid as one of two players this season to record at least 25 points, 15 rebounds, five assists, five blocks or at least 25 rebounds combined!

Austin Reaves scored 24 points, while LeBron James struggled, shooting only 6 of 18 from the field for 12 total points.

The Lakers have endured an 11-of-12 game stretch at home since winning the NBA In-Season Tournament and currently stand with a 3-9 record, featuring three straight losses and an overall 3-9 mark since. Anthony Davis expressed concern about their recent slump: if this trend continues, it could prove disastrous to their success.

Missing Jimmy Butler for six of seven games due to an irritation in his right foot, Miami displayed remarkable resilience and teamwork to secure an important win against the Los Angeles Lakers.
