October 3, Beijing time,
The Heat are missing two major players, but the recruits are also very active. Leonard and Herro made consecutive three-pointers. The Lakers didn't let the Heat lead for too long. LeBron and Davis took the lead to hit the basket. He also dunked with Howard and shot a wave of 8-0. The Lakers were not very accurate on the outside line, but LeBron easily hit the top three-pointer in 5:50.
Although the Lakers didn't play well, they kept the lead. After a period of rest, LeBron returned and dunked with the thick eyebrows. In the last 57 seconds, LeBron also assisted Davis in a fast break for a dunk. He scored 5 points and 4 assists in the first quarter.
After the start of the second quarter, LeBron once again soared into the three-pointer, and then assisted Caruso to hit the outside line, the Lakers opened the point difference to double digits. LeBron was in very good form, 9 minutes and 28 seconds after Iguodala scored from the basket and caused a foul.
But since then, the Lakers continued to strike on the perimeter, giving the Heat a chance to chase points. LeBron returned at 3 minutes and 39 seconds, brought the rhythm with Rondo, and constantly used passes to counterattack fast, staged an empty pick, and opened the score. LeBron scored 12 points, 4 rebounds and 6 assists on 5 of 9 shots in the first half.
At the beginning of the second half, LeBron scored in the paint, and then Davis chopped melons and vegetables and scored 8 points in a row. The Heat could not help him. In the end, the Lakers opened the score, and at 8:24, LeBron made a strong jump to the basket in the fast break, scoring a layup and causing a foul. Coupled with Davis's explosion, LeBron may never feel such an easy Finals victory, because the offense does not even need him to dominate.
At 2 minutes and 14 seconds, LeBron saw that he was unguarded from the outside and decisively shot a three-pointer. However, the Heat did not give up. Driven by Herro, the Lakers led the first three quarters by 10 points, which is not too big.
In the fourth quarter, the Lakers continued to hit the perimeter. At 5 minutes and 58 seconds, LeBron finally made a tip-up to break the scoring shortage and scored a throw again at 3 minutes and 02 seconds. When he broke through to score at 1:27, the Lakers led to 14 points, the game was no longer suspenseful.
