NBA Finals In The Bubble
The Miami Heat don’t seem to be phased by the Los Angeles Lakers and their two star players. A lot of NBA fans expected the Lakers to steamroll over the Heat and any other team in the playoffs. However, Jimmy Butler and some of the other key players have pushed the Heat to game 6. A lot of players have surprised us with their clutch emergences for their team such as Duncan Robinson and Tyler Herro. Another surprise would be Danny Green’s recent struggles in the bubble which has prevented the Lakers from being able to put a stop to Miami.
Jimmy Butler has been determined to lead his team to a ring and it hasn’t been easy. They faced the number one seed, Milwaukee Bucks, to start the playoffs and beat them 4-1. Then, they went up against a young and talented Boston Celtics and beat them 4-2. Now, they need to get through LeBron James and Anthony Davis to achieve what all 30 teams seek, which is a championship ring. Jimmy Butler put up a triple-double in game 5 and has been a force this whole playoff run for the Miami Heat. Jimmy Buckets hasn’t backed down to the competition and has been striving in it.
Win or Go Home
The pressure right now is on the Los Angeles Lakers. Anthony Davis reaggravated his injury and is listed as probable for game 6. The last thing they want to do is bring him back too early and have a similar situation as Kevin Durant and the Warriors. It’s likely he will be out for game 6 so that he’s well-rested for a possible game seven. The Heat are still in a win or go home situation, so they need to keep the intensity and momentum.
