Tiger Fight, October 3 In the second game of the finals that ended today, the Lakers defeated the Heat 124-114, leading the series by 2-0. After the game, Lakers player Alex Caruso accepted a media interview.
Speaking of the defense of Heat player Jimmy Butler, Caruso said: "Jimmy is a crazy contender. He is not always emotional, but he always stays focused. He is trying to carry the team tonight. Going forward is basically everything, rebounds, assists, attacking the basket, and standing on the free throw line. This is him. He has a strong fighting spirit and he will fight to the last minute. This is also the trait of the Heat. There are not many such teams and fall behind. Being able to launch a counterattack, we also see this characteristic in the Nuggets. For us, we are trying to compete to ensure that every round can match or exceed his energy."
In this game, Caruso played 23 minutes, 2 of 5 shots, 6 points, 2 rebounds and 2 assists; Butler played 45 minutes, 7 of 17 shots, 25 points, 8 rebounds and 13 assists.
