MIAMI – The Los Angeles Lakers stretched their road game winning streak to a lucky 13 after nipping the Miami Heat, 113-110, inside the loud American Airlines Arena.
Anthony Davis led the Lakers with his 33-piece performance while grabbing 10 rebounds and three blocks.

The Miami Heat who was unblemished in their home floor before the game suffered their first home loss on the league-best team.
Down by eight points after a Davis slam with three minutes left, the Heat fired back-to-back treys courtesy of Kendrick Nunn and Duncan Robinson before Davis answered them with his own triple, 110-105.
Davis was then fouled sinking one out of his two charities. After a series of missed shots, Nunn nailed a pull-up three-pointer to make it a one-point game with nine seconds left.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was deliberate foul sending him from the line only to make two of out his four attempt with Danny Garcia tapping the ball on the offensive end.
Miami had the chance to send the game into overtime but Jimmy Butler missed a left wing three-pointer after faking out Davis.
The Lakers squeaked out the match by dominating the glass 51-34 despite their 19 turnovers compared to only eight by the Heat.
Butler led the heartbroken Miami with 23 points as Nunn added 16 markers.
They now have a record of 18-7 while the Los Angeles Lakers remains on top with 23-3 win-loss record.
