LAL vs MIA Dream11 Prediction, NBA Playoffs: Even if Frank Vogel himself were to pen down the script for game-1 of the NBA Finals series, he may have struggled to be as impudent a writer as his players were on the court. Then there were injuries, with Heat losing both Goran Dragic and Bam Adebayo in the second half, a big reason why the Lakers reigned over most of the game, with the opponnets forced to look a bevy of incompetent numbers.
If you can believe, Lakers had a 75-30 run in game-1, which is unfathomable for a game in the NBA Finals. For this is that stage in the season, where the difference between the opponents should be as close as it can be. But it was anything but a competitive game, at least in hindsight.
LAL vs MIA Dream 11 Prediction: Heat superstar Jimmy Butler knows the size of the task in front of him and his teammates, and said that his team will have to play an almost perfect game to level the series. But it will be difficult. This team lacks the experience to negotiate the finals and it will also depend on the health of the roster.
Rookie Tyler Herro failed to handle the pressure and had a complete meltdown as he had a minus-35 which is the worst plus/minus performance in the NBA Finals since Kobe Bryant's worst show in 2008 NBA Finals.
The game-2 will be played at AdventHealth Arena, in Orlando, Florida, on Saturday morning (IST). Here is LAL vs MIA Dream 11 Match Prediction.

LeBron James: Numbers, the King has managed in the playoffs this season, are just incredible. He has, at times, outplayed even a prime Anthony Davis which is incredible. James clocked yet another double-double in the last match with 25 points and 13 rebounds. He is a true option for either super player or power player role in this Dream11 Basketball fantasy basketball match.

Miami Heat are the best shooting team in the NBA at the moment, but somehow, they looked the worst shooting team after game-1. Rookie Herro had his worst game in Heat colours, while Duncan Robinson, another player with a soaring reputation from the three-point ranger took just three shots in the match and ended with zero points.
Bam Adebayo and Goran Dragic's health will also define how Heat go about their business in this match. At the moment, the duo of LeBron James and Anthony Davis look invincible, impregnable. A win for the Lakers is our call.
