After the game, James opined that they is still some work to be done for the Lakers to win their first championship in 10 years.
“We understand what’s at stake,” said James. “The job is not done. Not yet. But they’re on the brink.”
Miami Heat had their player, Bam Adebayo return from injury but he could really make any impact on the game.
He was unable to negate the early threat of James and Davis as they came from behind to lead 33-29 in the second quarter.
Game five of the seven-match series is on Friday (Saturday 02:00 BST).
