Lakers vs. Heat live score, updates, highlights from Game 3 of the 2020 NBA Finals

The Heat have beaten the odds all postseason long, but man, the odds are really against them this time.

Miami will once again be without starters Goran Dragic (torn plantar fascia) and Bam Adebayo (neck strain) for Sunday night’s Game 3 of the 2020 NBA Finals against the Lakers. The Heat fought valiantly in Game 2 with Jimmy Butler posting 25 points, 13 assists and eight rebounds, but Los Angeles prevailed by double digits to capture a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.

Can the Heat pull off the upset and extend the series? Or will the Lakers continue their playoff dominance?
