Frank Vogel does not underestimate the Miami Heat ahead of Game 1 of the 2020 NBA Finals.
The head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers says he is cautious of the Heat, which is a well-rounded team headed by Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo and Goran Dragic.
“They’ve got a lot of ways to beat you. They have three All-Star-level players in Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo and Goran Dragic. When healthy, Dragic is an All-Star-level player. They [acquired] a Hall of Famer in Andre Iguodala.
They have shooting, they have toughness. No surprise they’ve had such a successful postseason run. Very impressed with what they’ve been able to do beating three teams convincingly that if we played 82 games were on pace to win 50 games,” Vogel told reporters on Monday, via Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.
Game 1 of the NBA Finals between the Lakers and the Heat is on Wednesday.
