LeBron James led the Los Angeles Lakers in their 2020 NBA Finals rematch against the Miami Heat. Not having 2 of their 3 top scorers yet again. LeBron James missed his key scorers as the went down to the wire. Although Kyle Kuzma played his heart out and gave his all on the court scoring team high score, LA Lakers fell short by a whisker in the end.
In their defeat against the Heat, LeBron finished the game with 19 points. Although it’s lower than his usual production, James filled the stat sheet. He was just one assist and rebound shy off a triple double. The only flaw in his game was his poor three-point shooting. James was just 1-8 from beyond the arc, which is one of the reasons for the Lakers’ defeat. But do you think LA can hold off until AD returns?

Against the Miami Heat, both Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Alex Caruso picked up the defensive slack. But it wasn’t still enough to hold Miami off. In the post-game interview, LeBron spoke about KCP and AC’s efforts and how the team is dealing with AD being side-lined.
He said, “They are doing their part. They are doing their part and more. Every time we’re out on the floor, we’re all trying to protect each other and bring each other up out on the floor every single night. It doesn’t matter if you are making shots or not, we’re going to hold each other accountable, and everybody is picking up in AD’s absence.
“It obviously hasn’t resulted in wins these last two games, but we’re going to keeping working on our habits and continue to be great for one another.”
