After an unprecedented 2020 NBA season, marked by play inside the Orlando bubble due to the, a compressed schedule and upsets galore in the playoffs, the Finals have suddenly gone from yawner to potentially historic. The heavily favored LA Lakers raced out to a 2-0 series lead in the best-of-seven matchup against the Miami Heat before the Heat made it a must-watch series, taking two games on the back of Jimmy Butler. The Miami star has played every bit as well as arguably the best player of all time, LeBron James, capping it off with a historic triple-double in Miami’s epic Game 5 victory on Friday.
Tonight, the two go head-to-head again. A win by the Heat would bring the series to a Game 7 Tuesday and give Miami the chance to become only the fifth team in NBA history to overcome a 0-2 deficit to win the championship. A Lakers win would give the franchise its 17th NBA title and first since 2010.
