Los Angles will give the young Heat headaches with Anthony Davis, LeBron James and Kyle Kuzma on the offensive end and Davis will protect the rim defensively. In addition, the Heat will be playing the back half of a back-to-back with both games on the road and that will affect their shooting and defense on tired legs. Final Score Prediction, Los Angeles Lakers win and cover ATS 125-113.
