James scored 8 points, 2 rebounds and 3 assists in the first quarter, but also made 3 turnovers. The Lakers made 10 turnovers in a single quarter.
After the start of the second quarter, Kuzma and Morris scored again in a row. The Lakers also smoothly overtook their opponents. However, the Lakers' lead did not last long.

From the Lakers, the biggest difference in this game is the thick eyebrows. In the first two games, the thick eyebrows averaged 33.0 points, 11.5 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.5 blocks per game. Both offense and defense ruled the game. In this game, the Heat resolutely double-teamed, and the thick eyebrows could not find a mobile phone meeting, and he was also troubled by fouls. He played only 12 minutes in the half and only 9 shots in the game, and finally only scored 15 points.
The thick eyebrows of the first two games are definitely worthy of FMVP, but after this game, if the Lakers win the Finals, the balance of FMVP may be inclined to James. In this game, James played 39 minutes again, scoring 25 points, 10 rebounds and 8 assists, but James There were also 8 turnovers. The Lakers made 19 turnovers, a full 10 more than the previous game.
In addition, the Lakers also had some problems on the outside. Kuzma and Morris made a total of 19-for-9 from three points. The rest of the others added up to a total of 23-for-5. Among them, Danny Green was 0 for 4, James was 1 for 5, and Bo Normally, 1 in 3 and Caruso 0 in 3. With the Heat resolutely shrinking the double-teamed eyebrows at the basket, this three-point performance by the Lakers absolutely shouldn't be.
As for the Heat, I have to say that Butler's game is really too hard.
After the first two games, many people feel that there is no suspense in this round of the series. The Lakers have a high probability of sweeping. As a result, Butler does not believe in evil. In this battle, there is still no Adebayor and Dragic. Butler Carrying up the team, he scored a large triple-double with 40 points, 11 rebounds and 13 assists—not to mention a 40+ triple-double, 35+ triple-doubles in the finals only appeared 6 times, even Jordan did not do it Over.
It must be admitted that there is a gap in strength in this round of the series. The Heat’s probability of winning is the lowest since 2000. From this point of view, Butler is even comparable to Iverson in 2001. It is also the best battle of Butler's career so far.
Despite his amazing performance, Butler was still humble. He said after the game: "I don't care about triple-doubles at all. I just want to win. We did it. I'm very happy. We also belong to this stage, the Lakers. It’s not invincible, just do our thing well."
Of course, the series is not over yet. Even if the Heat win the next game, the Lakers are still the more promising side-this round of the series is also a game between the two coaches Spoel and Vogel, Spoel's adjustment in this game is quite Great, it depends on how Vogel responds in the next game.
