NBA Finals: What time is Lakers-Heat Game 4 on Tuesday?
That’s because until 2016, no team had overcome a 3-1 deficit in the NBA Finals until the LeBron James-led Cleveland Cavaliers won three elimination games in a row against the Golden State Warriors.
The Lakers will play the Heat at 9 p.m. EDT / 6 p.m. PDT on Tuesday in Game 4 at AdventHealth Arena on the Disney World sports campus in Orlando, Fla., seeking that 3-1 lead. The game will be broadcast on ABC.
The Denver Nuggets this postseason twice overcame 3-1 series deficits to advance to the Western Conference finals, the 12th and 13th times in playoff history that has happened. There have been 270 series since the NBA adopted a best-of-seven format starting with the first round in 2003.
Here is the complete schedule for the series (Games 6 and 7 will be played if necessary):
Game 1, Sept. 30: Lakers 116, Heat 98
Game 2, Oct. 2: Lakers 124, Heat 114
Game 3, Oct. 4: Heat 115, Lakers 104
