Los Angeles Lakers vs Miami Heat (Game 1) – NBA – The Los Angeles Lakers team confirmed their favoritism by reaching these finals
Los Angeles Lakers vs Miami Heat (Game 1)- especially after the Clippers elimination in the semi-finals of the Western Conference playoffs.
To get to this point, Frank Vogel’s team eliminated with great efficiency the competition offered by Portland Trailblazers, Houston Rockets and Denver Nuggets, all dispatched in just five games each.
On the other hand, the Miami Heat made a sensation by reaching the Eastern finals and, by winning the conference and being once again present in the ring decision six years later, they confirmed all their quality.
Pointed out to elimination in front of Milwaukee, the Heat managed to sent home the Bucks in five games.
In the same situation against Boston, it was the Celtics that went away in six games, not to mention Indiana, who fell in the first round with a sweep.
Besides having had a few more hours to physically recover for this Game 1 of the NBA Grand Finals, I see the Lakers with great capacity to be able to solve this knock out and the title conquest, where I fully agree with the favoritism given by the bookmakers to the Californian team, in a somewhat quick way, which means in four, five or at most six games.
I don’t see the Heat with enough arguments to get this to a Game 7. The high point of the Miami team has been the ability in the outside shooting and the exploration of the inside game, both by Adebayo and through Butler’s penetrations,
and I believe that these Lakers willing to give everything that they have in defense, as they have managed to do at important times in these playoffs, will handle it very well,
even because they have defenders like Green, Pope, Howard, Morris or Caruso who should be able to limit the efficiency of Crowder, Robinson and Herro.
On the other hand, I don’t see Miami with enough arguments to stop the Lakers’ offense, which has been well worked, with James and Davis in evidence, but also, as I mentioned here, on a different dynamic with the use of Rajon Rondo for more minutes.

Los Angeles Lakers vs Miami Heat (Game 1)- Prediction:
The depth in the Lakers bench could be determinant to maintain advantages or even to recover from disadvantages when it comes down to rotate and I don’t believe that, in a Game 1 where both sides will want to show what they are aiming to, the Lakers will lose and leave Miami with a strengthened confidence for what is coming.
