Another key to the series will stand in Lebron James vs Jimmy Butler, Jae Crowder, and Andre Iguodala. Andre has history with Lebron and may be able to give some advice to his teammates on how to slow down King James, since he has not been able to full stop Lebron yet.

2. Lebron James is in the Finals

For the past 10 out of the last 11 seasons, Lebron James has appeared in the NBA Finals. While he has only won 4 of those, he is back in the NBA Finals, but this time coming out of a stacked Western Conference. A Lebron-led team is always a threat, and probable favorite in the NBA Finals.

3. Forcing the Lakers to the Perimeter

The Miami Heat need to force the Los Angeles to shoot from beyond the arc. Simply put, Bam Adebayo and Jimmy Butler are not going to stop LeBron James and Anthony Davis down in the paint. Throughout the 202 NBA Playoffs, LeBron has taken 52% of his shots from within 8 feet of the basket.

4. The Miami Heat Need to Move the Ball

The Miami Heat Have the Matchup They Want. With a big-man front-loaded team, the Miami Heat’s uptempo, ball movement is a perfect gameplay for the Los Angeles Lakers. Much of the reason why they downed the #1 seeded Milwaukee Bucks is because of their ball movement. However, now they’re going to need to deal with 2 dominant big men.
