The Miami Heat rode the Jimmy Butler wave to capture a must-win game over the Los Angeles Lakers and will attempt to even things up and make it a best of three series in the NBA Finals.
Los Angeles Lakers
Although the Lakers fought back after falling behind by double-figures early foul trouble to Anthony Davis created issues with LA never finding an offensive or defensive rhythm in Game 3.
Markieff Morris (19) and Kyle Kuzma (19) were the only other double-figure scorers.
Notably, the Lakers returned James (groin) and Davis (heel contusion) to the injury list in addition to Danny Green (finger/hip) although all three are projected to play.
Jimmy Butler was spectacular in the Heat victory posting a triple-double of 40 points, 13 assists, and 11 rebounds.
Post-game Butler refused to take credit for being the reason Miami won. Butler said: “I hope the next game I score zero, and y’all talk like y’all wanna talk, and we win, so I can come up here and say the same thing.”

Free Los Angeles Lakers vs. Miami Heat NBA Prediction:
Game 3 the Lakers put up 42 perimeter shots connecting on 14 or 33.3 percent and turned the ball over 20 times.
Miami seemingly figured out a better way to attack Davis and guard him in the low post. Davis attempted only one shot in the fourth quarter and the Lakers were outscored 52-34 in the paint.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Heat +7.5
If Adebayo can suit up and be effective it would make a huge difference for Miami and with Game 5 not occurring until Friday he’d have time to rest and recuperate between matches.
As with every game in the series, the Lakers are significant odds favorites and will be refocused but again if Adebayo can play his presence would provide his club with an energy lift.
