Anthony Davis led the way with 34 points, nine rebounds and five assists. LeBron James nearly got another triple-double. He finished with 25 points, 13 rebounds and nine assists.

It was the three-point shooting that was the key. Los Angeles at one point was 13-for-20 from beyond the arc. They finished 15-for-38 as they began to take their foot off the gas pedal. On the other side, Miami was 11-for-35 from deep.

The Heat also got hit with the injury bug. Goran Dragic left the game with what was being called a foot injury. Bam Adebayo left in the third quarter with a shoulder strain and Jimmy Butler twisted his ankle and wasn’t the same. He finished with 23 points – leading the Heat.

Los Angeles takes a 1-0 series lead.
