Heat 11-14 Lakers, 6:50, 1Stand Quarter
Butler and Howard got it in court, and the commentator wisely noted that the Lakers needed a hit butler more than Howard. This is a dual technical, which is a win for LA
Davis Tips in KCC misses a lead and Eddie adds a dunk for a three-point lead. Robinson missed a three-pointer and it’s a deadline, interestingly enough, by the Lakers.
Heat 11-10 Lakers, 7:43, 1Stand Quarter
Duncan Robinson got three to join the hit lead but KCP got three of his old fashions. Jay Crowder fouled up a layout he went to the line and threw a free. This is a point game.
Heat 8-7 Lakers, 8:35, 1Stand Quarter
Tyler Hero Miami briefly put forward with the beautiful looking floater, but Danny Green hit a jumper in his response.
And there’s a pull-up jumper with Jimmy Butler. Soon to be back here.
Heat 4-5 Lakers, 9:58, 1Stand Quarter
Danny Green tried to block Jimmy Butler, but he called for a foul. Butler goes to the line, where he has spent most of his time in this series and hitting two free throws.
At the other end, LeBron James has scored for the first time and, we guess, this is not the last time.
Hot 2-3 Lakers, 10:34, 1Stand Quarter
Left Adibayo got the scoring with the dab but Danny Green responded with three pointers.
Heat 0-0 Lakers, 11:40, 1Stand Quarter
And we’re off! The Lakers get the ball first, Cantavius Caldwell-Pope fires and misses.
I just realized that Dwight Howard is very likely to be the starting point for the world champion Lakers team. This is not something that some of us could have predicted a few years ago.
Email from Curtis Brown:
I’m looking for a celebrity mention I chose the Lakers to win Game 5.
I have to think you are the majority here. If Heat can win this game, it will be the all-time “none of us will believe” game.
A vote for AD. The NBA countdown crew was mostly going with LeBron. Okay, there’s a chance we’ll get an answer here in a few hours.
For the record, if the heat can win tonight. Game 6 Sunday EST 7:30 p.m. This is another inspiring thing for the Lakers: they now have to compete with a lot of Sunday night football to win.
When asked about his future in coaching, Rajan Rondo, the guard at Le Curse Point, immediately said that he might be more interested in becoming a general manager … entirely in line with his personality. Let us just say that his decisions will not be influenced by sensitive concerns.
And we’re within 13 minutes of this progress and our first indication is that Mimi Hit is also taking part in the NBA Finals with Jimmy Butler with a split-second recognition.
Okay, I’m saying this: Mickey Mouse, not a living entity, shouldn’t be counted as a celebrity.
The NBA countdown has begun and we are already diving into the LeBron James / Michael Jordan argument. Let’s face it: this is the main story of certain NBA finals. With the fourth championship, LeBron James will continue to be added to his list of ridiculous achievements as he continues to try to surpass Michael Jordan as a rival or perhaps the best basketball player in history.
Jordan certainly has six championships with six final MVP awards, and there are many who will not even compare the two until James at least connects him to the ring. The thing is: James, despite being 35, is still one of the best players in the league and it is possible to find his ideal partner with Anthony Davis. Yes, James will start to decline, he won’t even be able to beat Father Time, but Davis can very well stay to be the best player in the whole league. It is unlikely that this season only begins in the later stages of his career.
It seems like the NBA is back on Chinese television for the first time in decades. If it’s hard to remember what happened next, you’re forgiven, but the NBA and China went on a rampage after Houston Rockets sent a tweet to GM Daryl Moore in support of Hong Kong’s anti-government protesters. Well, they obviously decided to make up the difference at just the right time which could very well be the final game of the 2019-20 season. Well, better late than ever?
I thought Davis was at the top of the MVP until his great performance in Game 3. Honestly, I think this is a case where the one who has the greatest performance in the closest game will win it.
One of the reasons Miami has won 3 games is that they surprisingly took the Alu Lakers team that they came up with so they mentally expected the heat to blow. The free Lakers turnover in that game is still the second reason after the performance of Butler Game 3 that basketball is still going on.
They don’t expect that they will mentally take this game for granted. They are bringing this mentality into the game that they will stop things. There should be enough evidence of their decision to wear a black mambar tribute jersey in honor of the late Lakers Great Kobe Bryant.
This is the point where I repeat the fact that I feel like this series is over. I’ll be glad to come here, but it seems like the last chance to change this series in Miami came in Game 4. I think the Lakes took the lead relatively early and in the third quarter it’s going to be missed that we’re already going to spend our time doing that. This win fits into the history of the Lakers and I will start with the LeBron James vs. Michael Jordan argument.
Agree? Disagree? Think Jimmy Butler has one more big game left, even though the Lakers’ decision to save Anthony Davis in Game 4 could be the turning point in the entire series? Again, share your predictions via email ([email protected]) or on Twitter (send to us) Retweet).
Dragik’s foot injury in the 1st game of the final could be the turning point of this series? ESPN’s Zach Lowe has made a case that in his absence has put the heat in an impossible situation:
The heat left plenty of hulls to rescue him. Salary got fatter and shuffled – until this postseason, when Dragick played the best basketball of his life.
You feel his absence in the extended part of the game. As Butler-Adabayo Fulcrum steamed, Miami investigated the crime – mostly Duncan Robinson and Tyler Hero. The Lakers were ready.
Point guard Goran Dragik was a bit gossipy about trying to find a way to play in Game 4 despite the fascination of his torn planter. That did not happen. If Miami had tied the series on Tuesday, we would probably have heard more, but it seems unlikely that Miami’s chances of growing up with frustration would change anything from the availability of Dragik’s Game 5. In fact, he’s in PG Gabe alongside Vincent.
Meanwhile, the Lakers are available to everyone.
Welcome to what could be the end of the longest and most surreal NBA season so far. While we may not be interested in this final, we are probably hoping to find a way to extend the season with the Miami Heat Game 5 win against the Los Angeles Lakers, we must acknowledge that this is a minor miracle that we’ve absolutely reached the point. Despite the irresistible adversity against them, the league found a way to restart the season after their extended break, without exposing their staff to the Covid-19 outbreak. Despite the legitimate fears of many of us before the start of the season at Walt Disney World, the bubble did not burst.
Let’s not be in a hurry to announce that the line may end today. The last time we started writing essays prematurely in the season, when the hits were reduced to 2-0 and two of their most important players lost due to injury, Jimmy Butler responded to the final game of the season, saving Miami’s hopes of a triple-double of 40 points.
Unfortunately, the return to left Adibayo in Game 4 was not enough to defeat the Lakers in the second-straight game. So, the Lakers now lead the series 3-1 and need one more win to secure 17 of their franchises.Th The championship and if they can’t win today, they will have two more chances. The reactions aren’t great for hits, in other words.
The heat should be given a lot of credit, not just considering what happened over the next few hours. They started the postseason as the fifth seed in the previous conference and they pushed the Indiana pacers forward in the first half. They then easily led Milwaukee Box, the league’s best regular season record holder, and beat the talented Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Final. They have long denied the adversity of all posts. No one should be surprised if they delay the Lakers’ reign for at least one more game.
Still, there is a very good chance that this will be our last NBA liveblog of the year (Commissioner Adam Silver suggested that it is likely that we will not see another season until next year). This means that if you keep contributing money, this may be your last chance. You can send an email to [email protected] or direct your tweets directly. Retweet. Game 5 of the NBA Finals between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Miami Heat is at the Walt Disney World bubble. The game is scheduled to start at 9pm EST, but we will have regular updates before then.
