The Los Angeles Lakers and the Miami Heat will face today each other in what will be the NBA California Classic 2022. Check out everything you need to know about this game, such as the preview, information, predictions, odds, storylines, and how to watch it in the United States. 

The preseason games begin and the teams are preparing for what will be the 2022-2023 NBA season, which will undoubtedly be very demanding. The Miami Heat had a very good season in which they managed to reach the Eastern Conference finals, but then they were defeated by the Boston Celtics, remaining very close to the NBA finals.

The Lakers' season was totally different: perhaps one of the worst for the Los Angeles team, and what many specialists have described as the biggest failure in NBA history. The franchise had a squad made up of many stars and with very high contracts, despite which they could not even reach the Play-in.

Of course, the objective this time will be to win the ring of champions, for which they must improve compared to what they did in the past Playoffs, and knowing that their rivals to beat are the Boston Celtics and the Golden State Warriors.
