Who knows who is going to play for the Los Angeles Clippers, especially with them on the end of a back to back. However, the Miami Heat simply don't look good, as the offense has taken a step back from a year ago and the defense can't defend the three at all. The Heat lose on the road by an average of 5.4 points and lose in the underdog role by an average of 12.9 points. Until the Heat get their act together, it's tough to back them against respectable teams.
