How to watch the NBA Finals live online

Posted on September 30th, 2020 by in How-to.

An illustration of the 2020 NBA Finals being streamed with ProtonVPN.

 

This year’s NBA Finals between the LA Lakers and the Miami Heat has plenty of storylines that basketball fans will be paying attention to. 

It’s a classic David vs. Goliath match-up, as the Lakers cruised to the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference, while the No. 5 seed Heat had to knock off two of the top-seeded teams in the Eastern Conference just to make the Finals. 

This is also a rematch of LeBron James against the team and coach that helped him win his first title.

Will LeBron and his new superstar teammate Anthony Davis continue their playoff dominance and bring a record-tying 17th title to LA?

Or will Jimmy Butler, Goran Dragić, Bam Adebayo, and the rest of the Miami Heat continue as the underdogs that just can’t be beaten?

Who is playing in this year’s Finals?

This year, the Finals is between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Miami Heat. The Lakers are led by LeBron James and Anthony Davis, both All-NBA greats, while the Heat rely more on the cohesion and dogged effort of Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo, Goran Dragić, and their pair of young sharpshooters, Tyler Herro and Duncan Robinson.

This is LeBron’s 10th Finals appearance. While Father Time is undefeated, he has yet to beat LeBron.

On the other side, this is Jimmy Butler’s first Finals. After a tumultuous career that has seen him bounce from the Bulls to the Timberwolves to the 76ers, Jimmy Buckets finally found a team he could lead in Miami.
