NBA Finals schedule 2020: Dates, times, TV channels for Heat vs. Lakers

LeBron James won his first NBA championship in 2012 with the Heat. Now he must go through them if he wants to capture his fourth ring.

James and the Lakers cruised through the Western Conference side of the playoff bracket on their way to the 2020 NBA Finals, ending each of their series in five games. Miami, meanwhile, dominated the Eastern Conference field in a nearly identical fashion. The Heat only dropped four games over the course of their postseason run, most notably sending the top-seeded Bucks home in five.

Now, the final two teams left in the NBA’s “bubble” will meet for a chance to claim the Larry O’Brien trophy. Will James and Anthony Davis lead the Lakers to the title? Or can Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo and the Heat pull off one more upset?

Below you’ll find everything you need to know about watching the 2020 NBA Finals.
