The Los Angeles Lakers took a commanding 3 to 1 series lead with their 102 to 96 win over the Miami Heat in Game 4 of the NBA Finals. Jimmy Butler was one assist shy of another triple double (22/10/9) and Tyler Herro added 21 points, but LeBron James, Anthony Davis and the Lakers were victorious in the end.
In addition to their two All-NBA players, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope gave the Lakers a solid extra boost. The foul trouble that plagued the Lakers in Game 3 was a distant memory in Game 4 as the Heat tallied 50% more fouls and no Laker accumulated more than 2 fouls. The Lakers now look to finish off the Heat on Friday night.
Breen: “The Lakers have not committed a foul here in the fourth.”
Me, to the cat: “The Lakers have not been *called* for a foul here in the fourth, Roo.”
