Darvin Ham vs Erik Spoelstra
Los Angeles Lakers enter this matchup just shy of the .500 mark and looking to secure their first road victory of 2019. Their road performances have been mixed so far; having lost three out of four contests away from home. Yet they remain determined to turn things around.
The Lakers have averaged 111.8 points per game on offense with an impressive 46.7% shooting percentage from the field. Defensively, however, opponents have averaged an impressive 115.7 score average and hit at a 45.9% success rate from their shots against them.
At the forefront of their attack for the Lakers are Anthony Davis and LeBron James – their dynamic duo averaging 26.30 points and 13.10 rebounds per game respectively, showing their versatility on both ends of the court. LeBron James adds fuel to this firepower by contributing 24.5 points and 9.2 rebounds each night.
D’Angelo Russell’s Contribution
Support players for the Lakers have also proven vital, with D’Angelo Russell contributing double-digit scoring and Austin Reaves providing invaluable contributions on the boards.
Shooting accuracy-wise, the Lakers have posted an impressive 29.7% three-point shooting rate and have been successful at the free-throw line with an 86.1% success rate. While their defense against three-pointers has been an area of weakness – opponents have shot at an average 37.2% rate from beyond the arc – they excel at rebounding with an average of 45 boards per game taken down.
Key Lakers Team Facts:
The Lakers have proven to be victorious against Eastern Conference teams with losing records in night games – winning eight of those contests so far. However, their ability to cover the spread has been inconsistent; they’ve failed to do so in seven out of eight games recently.
Notably, five of the Lakers’ recent six games against Southeast Division opponents have resulted in total points falling under the limit, suggesting lower-scoring games. Miami Heat: Searching for Redemption
Miami Heat are determined to rebound from their slow start this season and secure victories at home; winning four out of their last five home contests so far. For their part, the Heat are scoring 107.3 points per game with a 45.3% shooting percentage and are giving up 112 points on defense–allowing opponents a 49.1% success rate when shooting.

Tyler Herro and Bam Adebayo have led the charge for the Heat. Herro has been the team’s leading scorer, averaging 25.8 points and 5.7 rebounds per game to demonstrate his incredible scoring prowess. Adebayo, on the other hand, has proven to be an effective presence inside with 21.4 points and 7.2 rebounds to her name.
The Heat’s star power goes beyond James; Jimmy Butler also contributes significantly, rounding out their double-digit scoring trio. Duncan Robinson plays an integral part in their success by shooting threes and also contributing with 1.8 rebounds per game.
The Heat have proven themselves effective from beyond the arc, posting an efficient 39.1% three-point shooting rate and maintaining an 80.9% free-throw success rate. Defensively, they strive to limit opponents’ three-point success rates to 38.8% from beyond the arc while holding on to 43 rebounds per game on average.
