Monk in particular was phenomenal, hitting clutch shot after clutch shot to go 10-13 from the field and 4-7 from three. He outdueled fellow bench sparkplug Tyler Herro, who finished with an impressive 27 points and gave the Lakers fits all night. The Heat also suffered an injury-related blow in the first half when Jimmy Butler exited with a twisted ankle, only playing 12 minutes on the night, and missed multiple open shots and free throws down the stretch to help the Lakers close things out.
