The Heat will face the Lakers in Game 4 of the NBA Finals. They Bounced back nicely in Game 3 after dropping the 1st 2 games of the series. The scariest part of that loss as a Lakers fan is the fact that Herro and Robinson haven't even got hot from 3 yet so I still expect a big game out of either of those 2. They did a great job attacking the paint. Butler had 40 points without attempting any 3 pointers. He shot 14 FTs and could be getting a lot of calls if he keeps attacking the paint. Dragic is still listed as doubtful but a torn plantar fascia's an injury that tends to linger and take a while to heal so I really don't see him playing in this one and I think he's probably out for the series. It sounds like Bam should be good to go for this one though which should a big improvement to their lineup, especially defensively, and add to the momentum they've built with their win. The Lakers should bounce back and win this game but I don't see a blowout here. Let's the points with the Heat.
