    The refs will help the Lakers out.

    I'm not a Heat fan, but I want them to win. Lakers in 6, with help from the zebras is my prediction.

    Meyers Leonard and Kelly Olynyk will probably see minutes, this series. Gotta use height to fight against height.

    Leonard and Olynyk can also hit 3s, so they can drag out AD/Dwight/McGee, letting the Heat guards penetrate.

    The conspiracy theorist in me thinks the NBA wants the narrative for Lakers to win as tribute to Kobe.

    With LeBron having a 24 point 8 assist performance in the final game no doubt.

    bam adebayo need to be careful about sitting cramps this series during those long stretches on the bench in foul trouble. heat players in general need to watch for arm numbness as a result of too much hands up in the air and eye seizures whilst starin at those zebras

    Not well, considering Jokic was the main facilitator, as well. Man can't do everything.

    Leonard and Olynyk's only job is to render Dwight obsolete.

    Its obvious lakers will need to play small. AD needs to stop being a puss about playing 5

    Miami looking very good so far. As though they're just playing a regular season game and not game 1 of the Finals.

    Seeing coaches call appropriate time outs is weird.

    Why don't they just have their team jack up a contested 3 not in rhythm?

    If heat is very lucky, they can win 2 games.

    Bam gets a quick 2 fouls, and Miami suddenly looks like crap.

    Once they sat howard down lakers went on a run. They are just a different team with AD or morris at 5 with no traditional big as the rockets quickly found out.

    Those non shooting PGs, Kidd, Rondo, learned to be respectable 3pt shooters when they age. And Westbrook goes the other direction, shooting worse and worse as he gets old.

    Lakers are 9-15 from 3pt land.

    Green, pope and rondo turning into curry, klay and Durant from deep.

    Miami has no chance if lakers keep shooting like this.

    But if they do cool off in the 2nd half, I like Miami to pull out the win.
