  • LeBron James and Dwyane Wade combined to score 66 points last night, matching the total for the Lakers' starting 5.

  • While Kobe Bryant got his jump shot going late in the game, he made just 1-of-5 shots inside 10 feet. It was just his third game this season making one or fewer shots within 10 feet of the basket. In fact, Kobe's average shot depth was 17.6 feet Thursday, compared with 13.9 on the season.

  • The Heat transition game was sparked by 20 Lakers turnovers while they surrendered a season-low six. They outscored the Lakers 25-0 in transition with those easy baskets leading to a season-high 68 points in the paint.

  • The Lakers had no answer for LeBron James inside, as he set a career-high by making all 13 shot attempts within 5 feet of the basket, including six dunks.--LeBron James and Dwyane Wade combined to make 20-of-21 (95.2 percent) shots inside 5 feet. That is the most field goals made and highest percentage (min. 10 attempts) the duo has combined for on such shots since they became teammates.

  • LeBron James: 39 pts, 8 assists, 7 rebounds, 3 steals vs Lakers. Last 3 to do that vs Lakers- Michael Jordan (1988 Bulls), Stephon Marbury (2003 Suns) , Corey Maggette (2007 Clippers)
