Gameday Rundown: HEAT faces the Lakers in the rematch



Miami HEAT to the Los Angeles Lakers

Location: Staples Center – Los Angeles, California

Warn: 20:40

Radio: 790 AM, WAQI 710AM (Spanish)

Uniform: Backwards

Series notes:

– The HEAT and Lakers are in their only clash in the first half of the season.

– Last season, Los Angeles swept the season series, 2-0, and has now won by quarters against Miami.

– The HEATs are 27-37 all-time against the Lakers during the regular season, including 18-14 in home games and 9-23 in road games.

What to look for:

– Avery Bradley (right calf; tension), Goran Dragic (left ankle; sprain), Meyers Leonard (left shoulder; surgery) and Chris Silva (left hip flexor; tension) are all out. Gabe Vincent (right knee; pain) is likely.

– Jimmy Butler has recorded three consecutive triple doubles, becoming the first player in HEAT history to record at least two consecutive doubles. His last two have reached a set of consecutive roads, becoming the eleventh player in NBA history to post consecutive triple doubles in consecutive road sets.

– Bam Adebayo and Jimmy Butler each posted a triple-double on 2/18 at the SAC. They are the only pair of HEAT teammates to have recorded a triple-double in the same game, as they also achieved the feat last season on 12/10/20 vs. ATL.

– Currently, Jimmy Butler has recorded at least eight rebounds in 10 consecutive games, becoming the first HEAT who is not the center to achieve the feat since Shawn Marion had a 13-game streak from 2/26/08 to ‘1 / 01/08.
