Miami Heat vs Los Angeles Lakers Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview of the match for the NBA Finals Game 2 on Friday October 2nd, 2020.

 

Jimmy Butler Miami Heat
20.8 PTS

Jimmy Butler tallied 22 points (8-19 FG, 0-3 3PT, 6-7 FT), two rebounds, eight assists, one steal, and one turnover in Sunday's victory versus Boston.

Butler recorded another solid performance tonight, withstanding a fourth quarter rally by the Celtics to send the Heat to the NBA Finals.

He's been very consistent these playoffs, but his toughest test awaits on Wednesday evening against LeBron James and the Lakers. This should be quite the battle.

Anthony Davis Los Angeles Lakers
29.1 PTS

Anthony Davis shined in his NBA Finals debut, pouring in a game-high 34 points (11-21 FG, 2-4 3PT, 10-10 FT) along with nine rebounds, five assists, three blocks and only one turnover across 38 minutes in a 116-98 win over the Heat in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

Davis was brilliant on Wednesday night, scoring an efficient 34 points on 50% shooting from the field and from three-point range while also shooting 100% from the charity stripe.

Davis couldn't be stopped and it helped that Bam Adebayo did not return for the second half due to injury.

Los Angeles Lakers: facts and current form

The Los Angeles team arrives toned to Game 2 of the series after winning the first in a resounding way (116-98).

Of course, there was a time when he was losing by many points away, managing to reverse this thanks to KCP's triples and the work of the duo made up of Anthony Davis and LeBron James.

Both played in a great way from the opening jump, standing out the first in scoring and the second in all aspects of the game.

From there, on more, the rest of the roster contributed their own when it was their turn to play, the hand of coach Frank Vogel being very noticeable.

Special mention for pivot Howard, who is once again being important to the franchise due to his physical power when moving in the zone.

The logic indicates that the Lakers specify between 25 to 28 points per quarter and between 100 to 110 throughout the 48 minutes of play.

Miami Heat: facts and current form

Professor Spoelstra's box comes a bit beaten from the soul by clearly losing Game 1. And this is not the worst for the franchise, since Dragic, Adebayo and Butler are injured.

The first will not play this duel, while the other 2 if they have a chance to start.

At the moment the roster is suffering from the collective and individual hierarchy of the Lakers, which is much more noticeable in the area.

Apparently there is no one on the team who can stop Anthony Davis, as the "Eyebrow" played very comfortably from the opening jump.

LeBron will be handled by André Iguodala and Jimmy Buttler, regardless of whether the former Chicago may see his potential diminished due to the injury he suffered a few hours ago.

The Heat will most likely get 24 to 27 units per period and 95 to 105 total.
