Game Two of the 2020 NBA Finals continues, and the Los Angeles Lakers have taken the lead after an easy win in Game One.
The Heat have their injury concerns heading into this clash, with Bam Adebayo and Goran Dragic both doubtful with injuries.
The Lakers got off to a poor start in Game One, but dominated the finals three quarters to win the match 116 -98. They were led by Anthony Davis with 34 Points, and Lebron James had 25. Jimmy Butler led the way for the Heat with 23 Points, and will need to be very productive in Game 2 if they are any chance.

Los Angeles Lakers vs Miami Heat
Current Head to Head Odds
Los Angeles Lakers – $1.19
Miami Heat – $4.55
The Lakers are red hot favourites in this clash and rightly so with the significant injuries the Heat have to deal with. For the Heat to be any chance in this game, they will need a massive game from Jimmy Butler and Both Duncan Robinson, and Tyler Herro to step up. The real question is on defence, with a couple of the Heat’s best defenders out of this match.
The Lakers should have no trouble in this game, and the game could be over fast if they establish a sizeable early lead. No real value in the result, although it would be very surprising if the Lakers lost this one.
Our Pick – Los Angeles Lakers (Win)
Game Total – Over 216.5
These sides average a combined 221 for the NBA Season, and despite the fact that their head to head total goes down to 207 in their last five matches, the Heat is missing key defenders, and that means a lot of buckets and a potential blowout, fast-paced contest.
Player Prop – Kyle Kuzma + 13.5 P/R/A
Kuzma will get minutes in Game 2, after racking up 22 minutes in Game 1. He scored 3 points on 1/7 shooting, racked up 8 Rebounds and dished off 2 Assists. If he scores a few buckets in this match and gets half the amount of rebounds as Game One, he should cover this number comfortably.
