MIAMI – The Miami Heat were again without Goran Dragic and Bam Adebayo on Sunday as they went into game three of the NBA Finals seeking a first win against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Adebayo is sidelined by a neck strain and Dragic has a torn plantar fascia in his left foot — both suffered in the Heat’s game-one loss to the Lakers on Wednesday.

Both missed game two on Friday, when Lakers stars LeBron James and Anthony Davis combined for 65 points in a 124-114 victory.

The Lakers were seeking to take a 3-0 stranglehold on the best-of-seven championship series on Sunday in the NBA’s quarantine bubble in Orlando, Florida.

The loss of Adebayo, a key contributor for the Heat on both ends of the floor, and Dragic — their top scorer in the playoffs until the Finals — has hampered fifth-seeded Miami’s bid to pull off an upset of the Western Conference champion Lakers.
