This is my NBA GOY.
4:30 pm pst.
Los Angeles was up 3-1 going into Friday's Game 5 matchup. Jimmy Butler put up 35 points and 12 rebounds, but he also played 47:12. His legs will be jelly come the second half here. But even if he wasn't tired here, LeBron James and the Lakers will not allow the Heat to even this series up. They will go back to the basics and what they did in the first four games of the Finals. James and Davis will dominate while their bench, the deeper bench, all contribute. LeBron takes this game on his shoulders and proves he is still the best baller on the planet. Take the Lakers. Thank you.
