IT Scores 29 as Lakers Go 4-0 Since the All-Star Break

Isaiah Thomas Freethrow


The Lakers score 131 points in big win against the Heat

Slowly but surely, the Los Angeles Lakers are climbing up the standings of the Western Conference after spending most of the season dwelling near the bottom. And apparently, one of the smallest guys on their team is the reason why the Lakers have been so effective in winning nowadays.

Against a Miami Heat team that was coming off an impressive comeback win led by Dwayne Wade's vintage performance, the Lakers made sure that they wouldn't be added to the list of teams that were victimized by the Heat since Wade returned to Miami as Los Angeles went on to play one of the best offensive games this season, beating the Heat, 131-113 for their fourth straight win since the All-Star break.This is definitely a huge win for the Lakers are they are now only trailing the Denver Nuggets, just by 5 games for the 8th spot in the West. Who knows? A few more wins and the Lakers are in the playoff picture.

How did the Lakers beat a Miami Heat squad that owns a 32-30 record which puts them in 8th spot in the Eastern Conference? Below are the good things that the Lakers did:


Isaiah Thomas' 29 Points

Whether you love him or you hate him, you just have to admit the fact that the trade that sent Isaiah Thomas from the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Lakers has benefited both Thomas and the Lakers in many ways. And apparently, the trade is allowing Thomas to slowly rediscover and reclaim his old Boston Celtic-self as he top-scored the Lakers this time around with his 29 points to go along with his 4 rebounds and 6 assists. He went 6 for 11 from the three-point line. If IT can keep this up and the Lakers keep on winning games, this pundit won't be surprised if he gets re-signed for next season and beyond.


55% Shooting from the Three-Point Line

The Lakers are the second worse three-point shooting team in the league, only making 33.9% of their attempts from three this season but against the Miami Heat, they went 16 for 29 from downtown- a 55% shooting from that area. The Lakers' defense also helped them get the BIG W as they limited the Heat to a miserable 29% shooting from beyond the arc. 


Conclusion

While the Laker fans have something to be happy about, the Lakers have something to be worried about as Brandon Ingram is questionable for their next game against the San Antonio Spurs due to a hip flexor strain which he sustained against the Heat. And that's a big blow for the Lakers because Ingram has been playing well during the entire month of February so his absence will test the Lakers' capability to compete even without one of their young stars.
