The Miami Heat and the Los Angeles Lakers will meet in game one of the NBA Finals from the ‘bubble’ in Orlando, Florida. The Heat have been on a roll so far these playoffs, knocking off both the Milwaukee Bucks and the Boston Celtics to make it to the NBA Finals. The Lakers with Anthony Davis and LeBron James have steamrolled teams since the playoffs began.
With names like Tyler Herro, Bam Adebayo, and Duncan Robinson you might not think much of this Heat team but the way they are ‘gelling’ with Jimmy Butler behind them is a thing of beauty.
