Both players were injured in Game 1 and didn’t play in Game 2. Adebayo suffered a neck strain and Dragic tore the plantar fascia in his left foot. The Lakers won both contests to take a commanding 2-0 lead, from which only four of 34 teams in Finals history have ever recovered.
Adebayo and Dragic have played essential roles in the playoffs, averaging roughly 38 points combined as the Heat upset the higher seed in three successive series to reach their first Finals since 2014.
