The Heat were underdogs heading into the series, and injury issues have only made things more difficult for them. Miami was without both Bam Adebayo and Goran Dragic in Game 2, and while Adebayo is expected to return for Game 3, Dragic's status remains uncertain. Banged up and down 2-0, the Heat are facing an uphill battle to get back into the series, but if they've shown us anything over the course of the season it's that they're not going to give up.fhd

Storylines

Lakers: Things have gone about as well as the Lakers could have hoped through two games. James and Davis are both healthy and dominating, and all of the other role players are stepping up Veterans Dwight Howard and Rajon Rondo have given the Lakers excellent minutes, as both appear extremely excited to be back in the Finals after a long layoff. The fact that the Heat are so banged up obviously works in L.A.'s favor, too. Sitting just two wins away from their first title in a decade, look for the Lakers to continue to ride James and Davis to the finish line.

Heat: The Heat have had an inspiring run in the bubble, but it doesn't look great for them at this point in time. Beating the star-studded Lakers would have been a tall task for Miami at full health, but the injury issues they're dealing with just make it that much harder. Dragic was the team's leading scorer throughout the postseason, and we had him ranked as the fifth most impactful player heading into the series. Losing him is a big blow. The Heat will fight to the end, but ultimately they may be overmatched in this series.fh
