The 2020 NBA Finals began poorly for the Miami Heat, as they lost to the Los Angeles Lakers 116-98 and also suffered a few critical injuries in the process. Goran Dragic (foot) and Bam Adebayo (neck) are both listed as doubtful for Game 2 after exiting on Wednesday night, while Jimmy Butler is planning to play through an ankle injury. The Lakers absolutely dominated on the boards in Game 1 (62-40) and the potential loss of Adebayo looms large as the Lakers look to attack inside.
Game 2 of the 2020 NBA Finals gets underway at 9 p.m. ET on Friday. William Hill lists Los Angeles as a 9.5-point favorite, up 2.5 points from the opener, while the over-under, or total number of points expected, is 216.5 in the latest Lakers vs. Heat odds.
