Take the under. This could possibly be the last game of the 2020 season. I expect the defenses on both sides to be at an all time high. Both teams are capable of suffocating the opposition and with a potential championship on the line nothing will be held back. Bam Adebayo made his return to the Heat lineup last game and he had a nice performance. Both games that Adebayo played in have gone under the total in this series. He brings a strong defensive presence to the Heat down low. The game was played at a much slower pace in Game 4 and I think we see more of the same in this one. The Lakers still struggle to make shots from the outside and AD has been a bit underwhelming in this series. The Lakers make up for their shortcomings in the shooting department with strong defense. Lebron is still one of the best defenders in the game when he wants to be. The officials usually let the players play in games like this and I think we see less fouls called and more physical defense. Under is the play.
