The Los Angeles Lakers pushed back against the Miami Heat to take Game 4 of the NBA Finals. Now the Lakers will look to end the series in Game 5.
The Heat, though, will look to try to extend the series to keep their dreams for a fourth NBA Championship alive. With two days of rest under their belt, Jimmy Butler and the Heat will try to recreate the aggressive style of play that helped them win Game 3.
Los Angeles, who will wear their “Mamba Jerseys” will aim to remain disciplined. They’ll also try to take advantage of Kentavious Caldwell-Pope’s hot hand. The guard has made 38.5 percent of his threes in the postseason and the Lakers will look to continue feeding him.
