Touching down in the USA to gaze at the wonders of what could be the final NBA match of the year… 

This Friday sees the LA Lakers aiming to pick up their first championship in 10 years. The Lakers are currently leading the best-of-seven series 3-1. A win on Friday night would give the team a hugely important victory. This is because the last time that the Lakers won the NBA Finals was in 2010 when the team was led by the much-missed Kobe Bryant.

Wednesday night saw the LA Lakers beat Miami Heat 102-96 in Game 4 of the NBA Finals 2020. LeBron James was the star of the show with 28 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists. However, it was Anthony Davis’ three-pointer in the final minute that sealed the victory and put the Lakers on the brink of the title.

While Miami Heat put in some fierce competition early on, the Lakers gradually grew into the game, and the last 20 minutes was just a matter of the team holding onto their lead. Other key performances for the Lakers included some valuable points scored by Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (15) and Danny Green (10).

Lakers not quite there yet

There’s plenty of work to be done for the LA Lakers to claim the championship title. Miami Heat have quality players like Jimmy Butler and Tyler Herro. Butler proved to be pivotal in Miami’s 115-104 win in game three. Plus the return of Bam Adebayo from a nasty neck injury will also threaten to cause some upsets to many NBA Finals predictions.

However, the Lakers seem to have learned how to cope with Miami stars like Butler. In particular, Anthony Davis looked superb at the heart of the Lakers defence on Wednesday. No NBA team has ever managed to come back from a 3-0 deficit in the Finals. But Miami Heat’s head coach Erik Spoelstra has said that Butler is a ‘supreme, elite competitor’ who has the power to deliver what could be a truly remarkable turnaround.

While most NBA Finals predictions have the Lakers down to win Friday’s game, it’s always good to see what the sportsbooks think.  Bookmakers like Bet365 have LA Lakers down as clear favourites with odds of -323 (1.31). However, there’s every chance that Miami Heat could do the unthinkable and claw their way back to victory in the NBA Finals 2020. The best odds that you’d get for such a result are the odds of +275 (3.75) at 888sport.
