Frank Vogel: Lakers may start Dwight Howard in Game 2

  Frank Vogel: Lakers may start Dwight Howard in Game 2 Howard proved to be a difference-maker in Game 1, posting 13 points, three rebounds and two blocks in just 16 minutes. The reasoning makes sense. Howard is a vertical threat who makes life difficult for Nikola Jokic with his rolls to the rim. On the other end, he is also a slightly more disciplined and versatile defender than McGee is.Howard admitted he had a hard time with his limited minutes last series. Now however, it looks like he could really be getting his moment to shine.Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.

The 2020 NBA playoffs is the postseason tournament of the National Basketball Association 's 2019–20 season. The playoffs were originally scheduled to begin on April 18.

That’s exactly what we saw come to fruition.

Miami Heat clinch spot in NBA Finals

All-Star big man Bam Adebayo dropped 32 points in Miami’s decisive 125-113 win over Boston Sunday evening. This followed some major struggles from the youngster during Game 5 on Friday. Meanwhile, stud rookie Tyler Herro did his thing with 19 points to go with five rebounds and seven assists off the bench.

Back in June of 2019 (seems like eons ago) before they acquired Jimmy Butler, the Heat had 200-to-1 odds to win the NBA title. They joined the likes of the Minnesota Timberwolves and Washington Wizards with the longest odds to win the championship, let alone appear in the NBA Finals. It’s simply amazing what front-office head Pat Riley and head coach Erik Spoelstra have done with this roster.

Lakers in NBA Finals; LeBron James goes up against former team

It will be the top storyline leading up to the start of the 2020 NBA Finals between the Lakers and Heat. King James starred in South Beach for the Heat from 2010-14, leading Miami to two championships in the process.

Some things never change. Riley and Spoelstra remain with the Heat. However, it’s going to be extremely fun to watch LeBron go up against his former team. From an individual perspective, seeing James guarded by defensive stalwart Jimmy Butler and former NBA Finals MVP Andre Iguodala will be a blast.

The backdrop here is a Lakers team that started the 2020 calendar year reeling from the tragic news of Kobe Bryant’s passing. Kobe led the Lakers to their last NBA Finals 10 years ago.

As you might imagine, the sports world had its reactions to what promises to be a great 2020 NBA Finals matchup between the Heat and Celtics.
