LeBron James Hilariously Caught Going Full Coach Mode in Win Over Heat

The Los Angeles Lakers beat the Miami Heat and everyone got involved, including the leader. No, LeBron James didn’t play in the game, but he switched on his coach mode to help the team. The four-time NBA champion doesn’t mind coaching his teammates when things go rough. That’s exactly what happened in last night’s game against Miami.

Teams took the game in overtime and finished the night with a 120-117 record.

LeBron got into full coach mode, helping the Lakers win

The Lakers were shorthanded but they were able to get the best of the night. Miami is one of the most competitive team in the East. Many experts would agree that this was the biggest win of the regular season. The Lakers were missing nearly half of the roster and played with just 9 eligible players from the full-time roster. This was the second overtime win and LA has a 7-5 record at this point.

Russell Westbrook has one of the best performances in the season. He recorded a triple-double and finished the night with 25 points, 12 rebounds, and 14 assists. The newly-signed Lakers veteran was great down the stretch with 10 fourth-quarter points. Broddie did two big midrange jumpers to put the team up 112-110 with less than minute of the game. Of course, Westbrook missed a game-winning three-pointer in the last possession of the regulation.

What about AD? He was a bit quiet last night. He finished the game with 24 points and 13 rebounds. The Lakers big man went against two strong interior defenders in Bam Adebayo and P.J. Tucker.

The Lakers were playing without LeBron, Trevor Ariza, Talen Horton-Tucker, Kendrick Nunn, Austin Reaves, and Rajon Rondo. Reaves and Rondo are day-to-day at this point.

Malik Monk, Avery Bradley, and Wayne Ellington had their best games of the regular season. They combined for 56 points. Monk had his season-high 27 points off the bench, going 10-13 from the field and 4-7 from three. He was definitely more efficient than Tyler Hero. Bradley hit 17.

It was a motivating win for the Lakers and they should do the same against their next opponent.
