*Miami Heat Beat Lakers in Game 5 Game 5 Of NBA Finals, 111-108, Forcing A Game 6.*

*The Miami Heat kept their championship hopes alive with a 111-108 win over the Lakers in Game 5 of the NBA Finals. *
*The Lakers, who had an opportunity to win their first championship since 2010, now have a 3-2 series lead over the Heat. Game 6 will be Sunday at 4:30 p.m. PST. *
*The Lakers, who trailed by as much as 11 points in the fourth quarter, retook the lead for the first time since the first quarter after Kentavious Caldwell-Pope made a three-pointer to give them a 97-96 advantage with 6:20 left.*
*It was a nail biter after that.*
*With 16.8 seconds left and the Lakers trailing 109-108, Danny Green missed an open go-ahead three-pointer. Markieff Morris rebounded the ball but committed a costly turnover, throwing the ball out of bounds while wildly missing Anthony Davis under the basket. *
*The Lakers immediately fouled Tyler Herro, who made two free throws. *
*LeBron James then missed a 40-foot turnaround three-pointer at the buzzer. *
*James finished with 40 points on 15-for-21 shooting, including going 6-for-9 from beyond the three-point line, 13 rebounds and seven assists. *
*Anthony Davis had 28 points on 9-for-15 shooting and 12 rebounds. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope added 16 points. *
*Jimmy Butler led the Heat with 35 points on 11-for-19 shooting, 12 rebounds and 11 assists. Duncan Robinson added 26 points on 8-for-15 shooting, including making seven of his 13 attempts from beyond the arc. *
