NOW that was some basketball.
The Heat nipped constantly at the Lakers' heels, with Miami coming close to a lead on the second half, but never quite making it. Still, they were relentless all the way to the fourth. But despite a quick hot streak from Tyler Herro, revelatory plays from the LA crew (including daggers and defense from Anthony Davis) sealed the deal for the Lakers, 102-96.
Minutes after the final whistle, ‘Lakers’ trended on Twitter with 300,000 tweets and climbing fast. ‘Anthony Davis’, ‘Bron’, ‘Herro’, ‘Rondo’, ‘Kuzma’, ‘Finals’, and ‘Danny Green’ also made it to the list.
Expectant fans also made the keyword ‘Game 5’ trend on Twitter, with around 40,000 tweets, as well as '1 More Win', with 30,000.
There was a surfeit of good moments in this matchup, with awesome reactions to match.
