The Miami Heat need a win after losing five of their last eight games. The Miami Heat are averaging 111.9 points on 47 percent shooting and allowing 108.2 points on 44.5 percent shooting. Jimmy Butler is averaging 20.5 points and 6.8 rebounds while Bam Adebayo is averaging 16.1 points and 4.8 assists. Goran Dragic is the third double-digit scorer and Kendrick Nunn is dishing 3.5 assists. The Miami Heat are shooting 37.8 percent from beyond the arc and 77.9 percent from the free throw line. The Miami Heat are allowing 33.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.1 rebounds per game. The Miami Heat have lost four of their last five road games.
The Golden State Warriors need a win after losing 10 of their last 13 games. The Golden State Warriors are averaging 106.4 points on 43.3 percent shooting and allowing 114.8 points on 47.5 percent shooting. Andrew Wiggins is averaging 24 points and three assists while Alec Burks is averaging 16.1 points and 4.7 rebounds.

The Golden State Warriors are allowing 38.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.2 rebounds per game. The Golden State Warriors have lost three straight home games.
The Heat are 2-6-2 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 0 days rest, 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games as a road favorite and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games. The over is 20-9 in Heat last 29 overall. The over is 4-1 in Warriors last 5 home games. The Heat are 4-1-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Golden State and 7-2-1 ATS in the last 10 meetings.
The Miami Heat are on the end of a back to back and continue to play without Butler and Tyler Herro, so the roster is a bit thin and it's leading to a lot of losses over the last two weeks. The problem is the Golden State Warriors still stink, and that includes losing at home by an average of six points and losing their last five games by an average of 6.8 points while not playing a lick of defense. I want little to do with the Warriors. I'll lay the number with the Heat.
