HEAT BURN LAKERS!
The Miami Heat beat the LA Lakers in a Christmas Day showdown 101-85. The game was close but not near as close as I expected. The Heat didn't sacrifice the lead at all and had an easy time beating the Lakers. The big time player in this game was Flash Dwayne Wade. Wade made the court look like a slip and slide on a summer Miami day the way he was wowing the crowd with spin moves. Flash finished the game with 40 points and 11 assists in 41 minutes. The starting five for the Lakers have to eliminate their carelessness with the ball and their ability to stay in games. Ronny Turiaf, the Lakers first male cheerleader-player (have you watched him on the bench?) was outstanding off the bench with 13 points and 7 boards in 19 and a half minutes. You don't know by looking at the boxscore if Turiaf has had a good game or not. The tenacious hustle and flat out energy he shows even on the bench makes him a perfect role player.
WHAT WILL WADE DO NEXT?
