For the Los Angeles Lakers, the mission is simple: Get two more wins and become NBA champions. For the Miami Heat, the mission may be even more simple: Get one win and make this a series.

Game 3 of the NBA Finals is Sunday night, the Lakers holding a 2-0 lead in the title matchup.

The Lakers franchise is within reach of a record-tying 17th championship.

LeBron James is closer to his fourth ring and Anthony Davis perhaps is a few days away from his first crown.

They know desperation is coming from a banged-up Miami team, since Game 3 is almost certainly a must-win for the Heat.
