Here are your Heat vs. Lakers prop bets below with LA a -3.5 home favorite.
The Lakers will try to successfully manage another test Saturday when they host the Miami Heat in a rematch of last season’s NBA Finals. It will be the first meeting between the two since the Lakers defeated the Heat 4-2 for their league-tying 17th crown in the bubble in October near Orlando, Fla.
It hasn’t all been bubbly recently for the Lakers. On Thursday, they were soundly beaten by the Brooklyn Nets 109-98. James had 32 points, eight rebounds and seven assists for the Lakers, who played without Dennis Schroder due to the NBA’s health and safety protocols.
They also were hurt by the absence of Anthony Davis, who missed his second contest after suffering a calf strain Sunday against the Denver Nuggets. Davis, who was averaging 22.5 points and 8.4 rebounds per game, isn’t expected to return for at least a month.
