The Miami Heat and Portland Trail Blazers meet Sunday in NBA action at the Moda Center.
The Miami Heat look for a win after winning five of their last six games. The Miami Heat are averaging 106.6 points on 46.1 percent shooting and allowing 107.4 points on 44.7 percent shooting. Jimmy Butler is averaging 21.6 points and 7.2 assists while Bam Adebayo is averaging 19.1 points and 9.5 rebounds. Tyler Herro is the third double-digit scorer and Kendrick Nunn is grabbing 3.1 rebounds. The Miami Heat are shooting 34.7 percent from beyond the arc and 78.8 percent from the free throw line. The Miami Heat are allowing 36.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.4 rebounds per game.
The Portland Trail Blazers look for a win after winning six of their last nine games. The Portland Trail Blazers are averaging 115 points on 44.5 percent shooting and allowing 115.3 points on 47.9 percent shooting. Damian Lillard is averaging 29.1 points and 7.7 assists while CJ McCollum is averaging 23.6 points and 3.7 rebounds. Norman Powell is the third double-digit scorer and Carmelo Anthony is grabbing 3.2 rebounds. The Portland Trail Blazers are shooting 38 percent from beyond the arc and 83.2 percent from the free throw line. The Portland Trail Blazers are allowing 37.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.8 rebounds per game.
The Heat are 11-5 ATS in their last 16 games playing on 2 days rest and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 road games. The Trail Blazers are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games as an underdog. The over is 4-0 in Heat last 4 overall. The under is 4-0 in Trail Blazers last 4 home games. The Heat are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Portland and 3-7 ATS in the last 10 meetings.
The Miami Heat have the rest advantage and they're playing some of their best ball right now, which includes winning their last five games by an average of four points while shooting 48.9 percent from the field. The Portland Trail Blazers have had major issues with consistency and I'm not sure playing on the end of a back to back helps. The Trail Blazers are 5-10 against the spread when a favorite of five or less points. I'll take my free bucket with the Heat on the road.
