LeBron James and Anthony Davis key the Lakers in sporting a 22-3 record, while Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo are performing at an All-Star level for the Heat.
In what should prove to be a fun and exciting matchup, as well as a return for LeBron James to the place where he won two National Basketball Association championships, here are the three keys to victory for the Los Angeles Lakers. It's five years since Lebron left Miami after guiding the heat to two championships alongside Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade. Las Angeles shoots just under 50 percent from the field, shooting 48.7 percent and rebound 45.4 boards a game. Los Angeles is coming off a 96-87 win over the Orlando Magic on Wednesday in the opening game of a five-game eastern conference road trip. Butler also averages seven assists a game for the Heat, who haven't lost at home.
Justise Winslow won't be on the floor for the Miami Heat tomorrow due to lower back soreness and neither will Goran Dragic. Davis is averaging 29.1 points, 9.2 rebounds, and 3.0 assists over his last 10 games as the Lakers have jumped out to a healthy lead over the Clippers for the top spot in the west. Yet the Heat haven't missed a beat, winning seven of their last ten games.
