Head to Head
Lester's Breakdown - The 102-96 victory on Tuesday puts the Lakers one win away from a championship. LeBron James dominated Miami's weaker defenders, using pick-and-rolls to finish with 28 points on 8-for-16 shooting, plus 12 rebounds and eight assists. Davis had 22 points on 8-for-16 shooting, with nine rebounds, four assists and four blocks. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope had 15 points on 6-for-12 shooting, including a crucial layup late in the fourth quarter. Los Angeles took a 3-1 lead despite the return of Bam Adebayo. The Heat center had 15 points on 6-for-8 shooting and seven rebounds in 33 minutes in his first game back from a neck injury. Jimmy Butler had 22 points on 8-for-17 shooting, with eight assists, 10 rebounds and three steals. Miami was down by two points with three minutes left, then Butler missed a 3 and Caldwell-Pope hit a 3 in transition. The Heat shot 11 for 32 from 3-point range and just couldn't get it done. Game 5 is Friday and Lester has 3 takeaways from Tuesday night's action: Through 3 quarters, the Heat were shooting like a bunch of beach bum basketball boys (22 for 57, and 6 for 25 from deep), they made 22 out 24 free throws, as if the refs weren't responsible for that...yeah right...and they played their defensive game like they were getting bullied before lunch. Los Angeles had not done much damage in transition or on the offensive glass, and had shot just 7 for 9 from the free throw line, hitting 3s (12 for 28) and making Miami work. After a messy first quarter, the Lakers had cleaned up their turnover issues. The fourth quarter, was a different story, The Heat went just 1 for 2 from the line, and the Lakers went 11 for 12 -- LBJ made all 7 of his attempts.

Building an app that lets you bet with your friends
I recently built my first app for iOS and Android called WagerLab which lets you send and track bets with friends. I'd love to get some feedback on how I can improve it. I could also really use beta testers, so if anyone is interested in that, please shoot me a PM. Here's a link to the app: WagerLab - Ditch the bookie, bet with your friends I built it because I usually prefer to bet against my friends rather than a sportsbook when possible for simple bets, but usually find agreeing to terms/lines and tracking balances to be tedious. On WagerLab, you can browse upcoming lines, send a bet to a friend, and then keep track of the results which are reflected in your current balance with that friend (the two of you can reset your balance at any time). Right now, it supports spread bets on NFL, NCAAF, NCAAB, NBA, NHL, MLB, and most worldwide soccer leagues as well as an entertainment category where you can bet on politics, tv shows, awards, current events, etc. I'm hoping to add totals, moneyline, and parlay betting (without juice) in the near future. Thanks for reading! Let me know what you think.
