LAKERS VS HEAT

Game 1 of the NBA Finals ended in despair for the Miami Heat as they were blown out and sustained multiple injuries. Going forward the Heats' chances of defeating the Lakers to win the NBA Finals has diminished significantly. Game 2 will be played at 8:30 today on ABC.

Anthony Davis was the star of game 1 scoring 34 points on 21 attempts while his counterpart, Lebron James scored 25 himself with nearly a triple-double. The Heat was dismantled losing 116-98 and was down by 32 points in the third quarter at one point. The Heat sustained injuries to Jimmy Butler, Gorgan Dragic, and Bam Adebayo. Jimmy Butler was able to return in after half time and is set to play in game 2. Gorgan Dragic has been listed as doubtful after he suffered a torn plantar fascia and potentially may not return for Finals. Bam Adebayo has suffered a left shoulder injury that he reaggravated later in the game in the third quarter, and he isn't likely to play game 2.

I'm taking to Lakers to cover due to the injuries, especially with Bam Adebayo's injury since the Lakers are trying to dominate with their size with a Lebron, Anthony Davis, and Dwight Howard lineup. With Jimmy Butler's injury, it's hard to guess how effective he's gonna be, while I still think he'll play decently I doubt he'll be able to carry the Heat to a victory.
