With the most versatile big man and top scorer of the playoffs for the Miami Heat sidelined the Los Angeles Lakers capitalized winning Game 2 of the NBA Finals to take a 2-0 series lead.
Los Angeles Lakers
The two best players for the Lakers continued to assault the Heat and without the services of Miami’s best defender LA was able to score at will in the paint which opened up the perimeter for wide-open shots.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (11) and Kyle Kuzma (11) were the other double-figure scorers.
Danny Green is listed as questionable for Sunday due to a bothersome hip injury.
For the first time since the Heat began their postseason journey, they lost back-to-back games. Playing without the services of rising star Bam Adebayo greatly affected Miami’s ability to protect the paint.
In addition, the loss of Goran Dragic and his 20 plus playoff points per game proved difficult.
NBA Betting Trends:
- LAL are 7-3-1 ATS in their last 11 games overall.
- MIA are 13-4 ATS in their last 17 games overall.
- Over is 11-4 in MIA last 15 vs. NBA Pacific
Free Los Angeles Lakers vs. Miami Heat NBA Prediction:
Without Adebayo, the Lakers easily manhandled the Heat scoring 56 points in the paint in Game 2. And while Miami played scrappy the seldomly effective perimeter shooters on the Lakes scored 16 triples out of an unusually high 46 attempts.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Heat +8.5
Unless Adebayo can return and be effective for Miami it’s hard to imagine this series will be anything other than a sweep. Still, the Heat has proven to be resilient and were much more competitive in Game 2.
A few things the Heat have going for them is their youth have stepped up unfazed, coach Erik Spoelstra is a master at defensive schemes, and it’s unlikely the Lakers will continue hitting from the perimeter. Ultimately, this is a must-win for Miami regardless of who plays Sunday.
