The LA Lakers have been unforgiving in their last two games of the NBA Playoff Final series. Without mercy, they have dispatched their opponents, Miami Heats, to open up a 2 – 0 lead in the series. It’s no surprise that they are favorites to win the final.
But Lebron James and co know better.
In 2016, Lebron James led his then Cleveland Cavaliers team to a comeback in the NBA Playoff Final. Despite losing the first two games of the series, the Cavs overturned it, forcing a seventh game, and winning the playoffs final.
As the NBA Playoffs Final series continue, LA Lakers will be wary of a side that has spent most of the post-season not overturning deficits but blowing teams away. There were signs of this in Game 1, where Heat opened up a 13-point lead in the first quarter. But that was quelled by Lakers, after they forced Heat to score less than 100 points in that game.

With Friday’s defeat, Miami Heats have now lost the same number of post-season games as LA Lakers. Both sides are now tied on three playoff losses this season. As the playoff season progresses, and with championship rings at stake, none of these two sides can afford to lose any more games.
LA Lakers have now won four on the bounce, nine of the last 10. They have not failed to cross the 100-point mark in each of those 10 games. What’s more? Each game had a total of 200+ points.
