MIAMI HEAT VS LOS ANGELES LAKERS CASH BET WAGERING ANALYSIS
The Los Angeles Lakers have the full advantage in this game with Goran Dragic out of the NBA Finals. Bam Adebayo is not going to be 100% and even if he is – Dwight Howard, JaVale McGee, Anthony Davis, and LeBron James will be checking on the young center. Jimmy Butler is going to play but he looks like a player who is just trying to keep his team’s hopes up. Heat should start good but like in Game 1, they won’t be able to sustain it.
INJURY BATTERED MIAMI HEAT
The Miami Heat suffered too much after a blowout loss against the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 1. With the lingering injuries to their top three stars, things look bleak for the Florida-based team. Goran Dragic is now out due to an injury for the entire NBA Finals and he had 6 points and three assists before being taken out of the game. Bam Adebayo looks to play but he will surely be not 100% for Game 2. Jimmy Butler also suffered an injury but he shrugged it off to finish with the team’s best of 23 points, five assists, and two steals. Rookie Kendrick Nunn came out with his best game of the playoffs with 18 points and will be expected to do more.
THE MIGHTY LOS ANGELES LAKERS
The Los Angeles Lakers just obliterated the Miami Heat in Game 1 and took an 18-point victory, 116-98. LeBron James came out stuffing the stat sheet with a near triple-double of 25 points, 13 rebounds, and nine assists. He is rivaled for the NBA Finals MVP by Anthony Davis who provided the team with a dominating performance of 34 points, nine rebounds, five assists, and three blocks. The team shot 15 three-pointers the entire game and shot an accurate 25-of-27 from the free-throw line. Shooters Danny Green and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope made life harder for the Heat as they combined for 24 points for the Lakers. Alex Caruso also had a double-digit contribution of 10 points as well.
MIAMI HEAT VS LOS ANGELES LAKERS HEAD-TO-HEAD WITH SPREAD
With what the Miami Heat have been showing in the playoffs, they have been fooling spreads by being the underdog win almost every game. They come to Game 2 with their center shackled by the Lakers defends and they can’t impose their will. The shooters of Los Angeles started to show up and that makes them impossible to keep up. This should be another blowout victory in the making.
