Summer League: Heat 106, Lakers 56


Posted Monday July 16, 2012 11:48PM

The Miami Heat (2-0) demolished the Los Angeles Lakers (0-3) by a score of 106-56 in what was the largest margin of victory ever in an NBA Summer League game, breaking the previous record from July 11, 2006 when the Boston Celtics defeated the Toronto Raptors in a 48 point victory, 110-62.

It was a strong showing for the World Champions' supporting cast as all five Miami starters scored in double-figures. The Heat's well balanced scoring attack was led by Dexter Pittman, who is entering his third season with Miami and led all scorers with 14 points.

Miami also received large contributions from Norris Cole, Damian Saunders and Terrel Harris. Cole who appeared in 65 games for the Heat last season and was a spark-plug off the bench in the NBA Playoffs, assisted the charge early having success penetrating the Lakers' defense and finding his way to the free throw line. Cole finished with 13 points, nine assists and was a perfect 7-for-7 from the charity stripe.

Saunders, who bounced around this past season between the Houston Rockets and the Rio Grande Valley Vipers of the NBA Developmental League showed off his shooting ability knocking down 13 points and connecting on 3-of-6 attempts from 3-point range.

Harris who is looking to work his way into the Heat rotation going into the 2012-13 season scored 13 points on 6-for-11 shooting from the floor to go along with three steals and three assists.

The Heat wasted no time bringing the pressure to the Lakers with their high octane scoring assault in the first quarter, outscoring them 33-11. They extended their lead to 33 as they brought a 57-24 lead into the half. Their biggest lead occurred with .23 seconds to go when Miami took a 52 point advantage.

The Lakers' Summer League struggles continued despite the efforts of Darius Morris who finished with 13 points and Chinemele Elonu who grabbed 10 rebounds.

The Lakers will look to get things turned around when they go up against the San Antonio Spurs tomorrow at 3:30 p.m. at Thomas and Mack. The Heat return to action on Wednesday when they take on the Golden State Warriors, 7:30 p.m., also at Thomas and Mack.
