The Miami Heat have issues that they're dealing with in terms of injuries and defense, but they are the better team here and should be able to get the job done. The Minnesota Timberwolves have lost six of their last eight games, and they're losing their last five games by an average of 12.8 points. The Timberwolves get blasted more times than not. Better options out there, but it's the Heat or pass for me.
