The Lakers beat the Heat today, and a big reason for the victory was the defensive efforts of Metta World Peace on LeBron James. World Peace slowed James down to 46.1 percent shooting, which is almost 10 full percentage points off from his normal average of 55 percent this season.
Metta also helped the team with key three-point shots and short turn-around jumpers from the post. With the word that Metta is finally rounding into shape, he could definitely be a key contributor to the Lakers’ success this season.
What part of Metta’s game have you seen pick up the most in the past few weeks?
