Series Notes:

- The HEAT and Lakers meet for the second and final matchup this regular season.

- Earlier this season, Miami recorded a, 96-94, road win in Los Angeles on 2/20. With a win, the HEAT will sweep the season series for the seventh time and the first since the 2014-15 campaign.

- The HEAT are 28-37 all-time versus the Lakers during the regular season, including 18-14 in home games and 10-23 in road games.

- LeBron James (Right Ankle; sprain), Anthony Davis (Right Calf; strain) and Jared Dudley (Right Mcl; tear) are out. Andre Drummond (Right Big Toe; contusion) and Kyle Kuzma (Left Calf; strain) are probable.

- Andre Iguodala enters tonight’s game just one steal short from tying Magic Johnson for 23rd on the all-time steals list.

- Duncan Robinson has currently connected on multiple three-point field goals in 15-straight games, the second-longest streak in team history.

- The HEAT is currently holding opponents to just 40.3 points in the paint, the lowest in the NBA.

- The HEAT dished out 34 assists vs. MEM on 4/6, marking their 10th 30-assist game of the season, posting an 8-2 (.800) record over that span.
