The Heat and the Lakers played each other twice this season, with Los Angeles winning both times. The first time, LeBron James was unstoppable with 25 points and six assists, and power forward Anthony Davis got 26 points, eight rebounds, seven assists, three steals, and two blocks.
The two teams met a second time on Dec. 13, 2019, for a much closer contest, with 113-110 for the Lakers. Davis was even more dominant in the game, with 33 points, 10 rebounds, and three blocks.
