The LA Lakers and the Miami Heat have proven their mettle throughout the season and the two best teams of the league will take on each other in the finals.
The LA Lakers have continued their domination as they took a 2-0 lead after winning the second game by 124-114 with their star LeBron James top scoring with 33 points.
On the other hand, Jimmy Butler top scored with 25 points for the Heat but the Lakers were too good for the opposition.
We bring you the Betting Tips, which can help you in placing the right bets. We will discuss current form, stats, head to head and players to look out for.
As the LA Lakers have played only 15 matches in the postseason before the finals, courtesy their domination in the playoff stages, their big players have fresh legs. Anthony Davis and LeBron James are carrying the team forward and the Lakers are currently a force to reckon with as they are playing at the top of their game.
On the other side, the Miami Heat have also played 15 matches in the playoffs before the finals but their players have looked out of colour. They have lost the first two games of the finals by a margin of 18 and 10 points and they would need to pull up their socks before the Lakers get too ahead in the series.
Head to Head:
Total matches in the regular season – 64, Won by Lakers – 37, Won by Heat – 27.
Playoff matches – 2, Won by Lakers – 2, Won by Heat – 0.
Players to watch out for:
Anthony Davis and LeBron James are the top scorer in the first two matches of the NBA finals respectively for the Lakers. Both of these top players are in sublime form and they would aim to continue their good form.
Miami Heat have relied on the shoulders of Jimmy Butler but they would want a collective effort from the team to stay afloat in the series.
