NBA Championship Odds: Los Angeles Lakers Will Play Miami Heat In The NBA Finals

Miami Heat staged a fourth-quarter comeback to defeat the Boston Celtics and secure a place in the NBA Finals, where they'll meet their former team member LeBron James. 

Bam Adebayo was the star of the show in their 125-113 win over the Boston Celtics on Sunday night Adebayo scored a season-high 32 points and grabbed 14 rebounds. 

Miami Heat's finals challenge has come at somewhat of a surprise to most online bookmakers. The Heat were a massive +2500 to win the NBA Championship around the middle of August and even bigger pre-season when their odds ranged between +6000 and +11000. However, they've proved the oddsmakers wrong, and they'll need to do so again against the Los Angeles Lakers.
