Six games were on the NBA schedule, including the Eastern Conference clash between the top two, Miami and Philadelphia, won by the Heat. For their part, the Lakers beat Golden State thanks to a huge LeBron James, author of 56 points!
The boss of the East is Miami! The top two in the Conference clashed Saturday in Florida, and the Heat did not go into detail by beating Philadelphia 99-82 to now be three games ahead of the 76ers at the top of the standings. The Floridians led this game almost from start to finish, with a fourteen-point lead at halftime (54-40), before seeing Philadelphia return to -2 at the end of the third quarter, and finally winning the last 26-14. Tyler Herro and Jimmy Butler each finished with 21 points for the Heat, who have won 11 of their last 13 games as Joel Embiid’s 22 points and 15 rebounds weren’t enough for the 76erswho were deprived of James Harden, injured in the adductors.
