If you're gonna beat the Heat, this is not the way to do it. Last night, the Lakers hosted the Heat at the Staples Center. And, they opened the game by turning the ball over four straight times and then subsequently giving up four straight dunks to LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. Miraculously, they hung around for three quarters after that and didn't get run out of their own building. But, in the end, Miami pulled away to earn a 99-90 victory. So, it sounds like the eight points that the Lakers basically handed them here would have come in handy later.
