Los Angeles Lakers demolish the Heat in Game 1.
Miami Heat bettors lost out big time tonight as the Lakers easily defeated the Heat. AD and James held control of the game for the entirety of the 48 minutes of play.
The Miami Heat zone defense did not seem to affect the Lakers one bit as the Lakers drained 40% of their shots from beyond the arc and barely committed any offensive fouls.
It will be interesting to see what Erik Spoelstra will put in place for Game 2, this Friday.
