James will be making his 10th appearance in the NBA Finals, while Rajon Rondo, Dwight Howard, Danny Green and JaVale McGee all have experience on the NBA’s biggest stage.James has been the catalyst for Los Angeles’ offense this postseason, averaging 26.7 points, 10.3 rebounds and 8.9 assists per game in the playoffs. Anthony Davis has also been sensational for the Lakers, having scored 27 or more points in five straight games. Davis has also been lethal from the free-throw line, knocking down 92.6 percent of his free throws against the Nuggets in the Western Conference Finals.Why the Heat can coverAdebayo was the best player on the court in the Eastern Conference clincher, putting up 32 points, 14 rebounds and five assists in a dominant performance. For the entire playoffs, the talented center is averaging 18.5 points,11.4 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game, with Butler adding 20.7 points and 5.7 rebounds. The top-billed duo is joined by Goran Dragic, averaging 20.9 points per game, to form an elite offense, with the Heat scoring 113.4 points per 100 possessions in their playoff run.Miami is No. 2 in both assist rate (65.9 percent) and assist-to-turnover ratio (1.86-to-1) among playoff teams, and the Heat are also tremendous at the free-throw line, ranking second in both free throw creation and efficiency. Defensively, the Heat will have their hands full with the Lakers, but Miami can

cause havoc, averaging 7.5 steals per game in the playoffs, and Erik Spoelstra is perhaps the leading expert on defensive tactics. The Heat were successful using a zone defense against Boston, and that could be an intriguing weapon against a top-heavy offensive team like the Lakers.How to make Lakers vs. Heat picksSportsLine’s model is leaning under on the total, with Kyle Kuzma and Butler projected to fall short of their season-long scoring averages. It also says one side of the spread has all the value. You can only get the pick at SportsLine.Lakers-Heat 2020 NBA Finals Game 1 prop bets: Expect LeBron James to take advantage of Miami’s zone defenseThe NBA Finals aren’t quite the Super Bowl. There are no Gatorade or coin toss props for you to choose from. But as an NBA gambler, it really doesn’t get better than this. Virtually every rotation player has a couple of individual props on the board, andwith such a large sample of bubble games to draw from, many of them are fairly predictable winners.A tip: Think strategically about how you expect the series to play out, and let that dictate your props. Are the Heat going to play a lot of zone? Then which Lakers players are best equipped to attack it? Will the Lakers go big? Which smaller Heat players benefit from that? Coaching is as important as individual performance at this stage of the postseason. Erik Spoelstra and Frank Vogel will go a long wayin determining who posts big numbers in this series. They are at the forefront of Game 1’s best prop bets.All lines via William Hill SportsbookAnthony Davis: Under 9.5 reboundsThe Lakers will have to work hard to generate transition offense against a Miami team that was 27th in pace this season and has one of the best transition defenses in basketball. Assuming they play big in Game 1 (a strategy that could change as the series progresses), letting Davis leak out on Heat shots rather than focusing on rebounding is one of their preferred methods of stealing easy points. Davis had only 12 combined rebounds in the last three Denver games, and this was a big reason why. When the Lakers have a center in the game, as they largely did in that series, they can afford to treat Davis’ rebounding as a luxury.Jae Crowder: Over 11.5 points

The likeliest defensive alignment for the Lakers includes LeBron James starting Game 1 defending Jae Crowder. Crowder is no slouch, but the Lakers prefer to stick LeBron on lesser threats so that he can focus on playing his stellar help defense. That works for them in the aggregate, but it will probably lead to some open 3-pointers for Crowder. Heisn’t the 45 percent shooter he was during the regular season or early rounds with the Heat, but he isn’t going to shoot 18 percent in this series as he did in the final five Boston games either. Expect a bounce-back effort from Crowder, and an important one for the Heat. If Crowder can force James to defend him more aggressively, it opens up several other things for the Hea
