Heat defeats Lakers and stays alive in NBA Finals

With another epic performance from their star Jimmy Butler, the Miami Heat defeated the Los Angeles Lakers 111-108 in a heart attack last minute and prevented LeBron James’ team from becoming champion in Game 5 of the Finals.

With 109-108 on the scoreboard, the Lakers had the last possession to win the game and conquer the ring but Danny Green missed a triple and Markieff Morris, who took the offensive rebound, sent a pass out.

Butler, with 35 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists, emerged victorious from an anthological duel with LeBron James (40 points, 13 rebounds and 7 assists).

The Lakers, who remain 3-2 in the series, will have another shot at the championship in Game 6 on Sunday at Disney World. AFP (HN).
