Lakers vs. Heat live score, updates, highlights from Game 2 of the 2020 NBA Finals

As if stopping LeBron James and Anthony Davis in the 2020 NBA Finals wasn’t hard enough, the Heat will be dealing with a new challenge during Friday night’s Game 2 against the Lakers.

Miami is down two starters after Goran Dragic and Bam Adebayo both left Game 1 with injuries. Those losses will put a lot of pressure on Jimmy Butler and the Heat’s supporting cast considering a James-led team has never lost a series after capturing a 2-0 lead.

Can Miami stun Los Angeles and even things up at one game apiece? Or will the Lakers continue their rampage through the playoffs?

Sporting News will provide live updates and highlights from Game 2 between the Lakers and Heat. Follow along right here.
