The Scout: NBA Finals Game 6

Los Angeles Lakers vs Miami Heat

ANOTHER Jimmy Butler triple-double means we have (at least) Game 6 in these NBA Finals.

The Heat star had 35 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists going toe-to-toe with LeBron who had 40 points of his own.

Anthony Davis aggravated a heel injury in Game 5 but will suit-up and be ready to go here. AD is the key for the Lakers, and it’s no coincidence that his two down games have been the two Heat wins in this series.

Although AD had 28 points in Game 5, he was very passive by his standards and often stationary on offense. LeBron dominated the ball (especially down the stretch) but will need to get his teammates better involved to give the Lakers the best chance of avoiding a Game 7.

Miami have no real way of containing Davis when he’s in full flight. In Games 1 and 2 he scored 34 and 32 points, and I’m expecting a similar stat line (if not more) in Game 6.

Suggested Bet: Anthony Davis 30+ Points @ $2.25*

*Odds correct as at 12pm, 11th October 2020.
