The Los Angeles Lakers improved to 7-5 after taking down the Miami Heat in overtime (120-117). Malik Monk was the top scorer for the winners with 27 points coming off the bench.

After the game, Lakers head coach Frank Vogel shared his thoughts on his team’s performance. “It’s a great fight, man,” he said. “We’re undermanned, we’re learning each other.

“[The Heat] got a really good team, some would say the best in the league or best in the East. Our guys competed. We challenged them to do better at halftime on the defensive side of the ball. I thought they rose to that challenge. We just gutted out a tough tough win.”
