'When the OG speak, everybody listen': Haslem's fiery speech lit up NBA Twitter

12:37 AM ET

The Miami Heat came into Game 2 of the NBA Finals against the Los Angeles Lakers facing a 1-0 deficit and down two of their top players, as Bam Adebayo (neck) and Goran Dragic (foot) were both ruled out ahead of Friday’s game. The Heat countered by putting Meyers Leonard and Tyler Herro in the starting lineup and looked to get other role players such as Kelly Olynyk involved.

The Lakers held a 14-point lead to close the first half, but the Heat did everything they could to keep the game within reach. Midway through the third quarter, the Lakers’ lead swelled to 18 points and the game looked to be out of reach for the Heat. Players looked tentative at points of the contest and appeared overwhelmed by Los Angeles’ offense.

All we wanna see is some fight. Let’s go. Keep playing
