The 2020 NBA Finals are two games away from being over. And, according to many, the series is already wrapped up.

Los Angeles took a 2-0 lead over Miami on Friday night. The Lakers, led by LeBron James and Anthony Davis, dominated the injury-riddled Heat on way to a Game 2 victory. Miami really has no answer for LeBron and Davis at this point in the series.

While most analysts expected Los Angeles to win, many felt that Miami would make it a tough series. The Heat, thanks in part to some injuries to Goran Dragic and Bam Adebayo, have not been able to do that so far.

Following the Game 2 loss, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra had a brutally honest message for the critics.

"We don't give a s--t what anybody else thinks..." Spoelstra said after Game 2. "If you want something badly enough, you figure it out."

The Heat are running out of time to figure it out, though.

Miami desperately needs to win Game 3 in order to make this a competitive series. Thankfully for the Heat, big man Bam Adebayo reportedly plans on playing. It remains to be seen what Dragic's status is.

Game 3 of the NBA Finals is scheduled for Sunday evening. Tipoff is set for 7:30 p.m. E.T.
