The Los Angeles Lakers are trying to hold their own against the Miami Heat, and while the odds are stacked against them, they’re managing to hang int herewith one of the Eastern Conference’s best teams.

Part of the reason for the Lakers success tonight, and in this little stretch they’re experiencing as of late, is the play of their stitched together roster. It’s not filed with the star power that Lakers fans have been expecting to see, but it’s packing a punch that no one really thought it was capable of.

The play of Jodie Meeks is an example of how the Lakers have pulled things together, and he displayed his skills with a nice layup against the Heat on Thursday.
