The Los Angeles Lakers will be looking to put the Miami Heat in a 2-0 hole when Game 2 of the NBA Finals is played Friday night near Orlando, Fla., at AdventHealth Arena on the Disney World campus.

The Lakers routed Miami, 116-98, on Wednesday in the best-of-seven series opener. Game 2, which will be broadcast on ABC, tips off shortly after 6 p.m. (Pacific).

The Lakers will be a big favorite after the Heat listed starting center Bam Adebayo and starting point guard Goran Dragic as doubtful because of injuries.

Adebayo has a strained neck while Dragic tore the plantar fascia in his left foot. Star forward Jimmy Butler is trying to recover from a sprained left ankle and is listed as probable.
