Coming into this game, the question was who was going to suit up for both teams. Near the end of the game, it was if the Miami Heat were going to miss a shot, as they won 111-89.
Miami absolutely destroyed the Los Angeles Clippers thanks to an amazing shooting performance. The Heat ended the game only having shot 52.9 percent from the field, but they were shooting close to 70 percent late in the third quarter.
LeBron James led the Heat with 30 points on an impressive 9-of-11 shooting. The Clippers were led by DeAndre Jordan’s 17 points, and he had little help from his teammates.
The floor spacing from the Heat caused the Clippers defense to break down continuously throughout the game. Too many wide-open threes and uncontested shots helped Miami go on a 20-3 run after halftime and pull away for good in the third quarter.
