LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) -- Jimmy Butler is not ready to go home. A triple-double later, he joined NBA Finals lore -- and the short-handed Miami Heat might have made this title matchup a series after all.

Butler finished with 40 points, 11 rebounds and 13 assists, and the Heat beat the Los Angeles Lakers 115-104 on Sunday night to get within 2-1 -- doing so with starters Bam Adebayo and Goran Dragic still unable to play because of injury.
