Unsustainable shooting, as the second half showed.
Their 3s is what made the difference early in gm1.
Lakers are 21st in the bubble in 3pt shooting. Today was an anomaly. We dropped 7 three's in the 1st half. So say they made just as much as us, take away their 4 extra 3s which equals 12pts & it wld have been just a 5pt lead going into the half. Extra 1 or 2 less & you'd have a 2pt gm or Heat up by a point or more.
Hurt us further Dragic & Butler getting injured in the 2nd Q, then Bam in the 3rd. Then it all just fell apart. Everything that could have gone wrong pretty much did. I mean seriously, injuries to our 3 main players? What are the chances!
But as you stated could not sustain that shooting in the 2nd half. Just 4, tied with our 4. It's just too bad injuries had to add to the loss as we have been quite good after a loss & looking forward to a bounce back game.
