The 2020 NBA Finals continues with Game 3 on Sunday night. The Los Angeles Lakers are looking like they’ll skate toward an easy series win up 2-0 on the Miami Heat. The Heat are once again dealing with a few big injuries. Bam Adebayo (shoulder) and Goran Dragic (foot) are listed as doubtful again after missing Game 2. It’s not or never for the Heat to show up and ensure the Lakers don’t take a commanding lead. Let’s get you ready for Game 3.

Game Time/TV Channel/Streaming

Game 3 on Sunday will take place at 7:30 p.m. ET. The game will be broadcasted on ABC and will be streaming on fuboTV and YouTube TV.

Point Spread, Totals, Odds

Spread: Lakers -9.5
Over/Under: 219.5
Moneyline: Lakers (-480), Heat (+370)

The Best Bet: Lakers -9.5 (-107)

While the Heat put up a valiant effort in Game 2, it still resulted in a 124-114 loss — 10-point loss. So even when the Heat gave their all, it was only good for a 10-point loss. So as long as the spread for this game is under 10 points, I’m going to roll with the Lakers. L.A. had a much worse shooting performance in Game 2 than Game 1 and we know that Adebayo and Dragic will likely be out again. This should be the point where LeBron James just goes into beast mode and dominates. Anthony Davis has been dominating. There’s just not really anything the Heat can do. So I’m going to continue to back L.A.
