The Los Angeles Lakers stitched together roster has been able to keep things from getting too embarrassing without the majority of the team’s stars, and we continue to see just how talented they are against the Miami Heat on Thursday night.

Despite coming into the game massive underdogs, the Lakers have been able to hang in there and match the Heat on most of the blows they’ve thrown their way.
