Los Angeles Lakers vs Miami Heat LIVE
Lakers: LA beat the Western Conference with relative ease, not letting a series exceed five games in each of its three playoffs. Anthony Davis has proven to be the player who Lakers they were hoping to get when they traded him last offseason, as he averages 28.8 points, 9.3 rebounds and 3.6 rebounds, the team’s highest, while shooting 57.1 percent from the field and 36.6 percent from 3-point range. LeBron James he’s had classic performances from left to right, and he’s so close to averaging a triple-double in the playoffs (26.7 points, 10.3 rebounds, 8.9 assists). If there is an area that should be of concern to Lakers, is the shot of Danny Green. Against the Nuggets, Green He shot just 29.3 percent from the field and 32 percent from 3-point range. However, if we look at the last times he was in the Finals of the NBA, the numbers show that it really comes alive in that scenario (45.5 percent). LA will need that version of Green to show up one more time, otherwise James and Davis will be asked more to carry the load.
Heat: As for me, all the pressure is on the Lakers in this series, because nobody expected that Miami will go so far. Give this team the credit they deserve, especially the youngsters like Bam Adebayo and Tyler Herro, who have elevated their games to the next level and shown they can be the future of this franchise for years to come. Miami Has the depth and defense to cause trouble for LakersHowever, it will be difficult to contain LeBron and Davis over the course of this series. He Heat It got too small towards the end of the Eastern Conference final against the Celtics and it worked, however that game plan may need to change against the height that the Lakers are bringing in.
