The Miami Heat travel to the Barclays Center to do battle with the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday night.

The Miami Heat have won two of their first three games and they will be looking to build some momentum after blowing past the Magic in a 107-90 home win on Monday. Jimmy Butler led the team with 36 points with five steals on 15 of 21 shooting, Bam Adebayo added 16 points with 13 rebounds, Markieff Morris scored 16 points off the bench while Tyler Herro chipped in with 13 points and nine assists off the bench. As a team, the Heat shot 47 percent from the field and just six of 27 from the 3-point line, but this win was all about their defense as they were locked on right from the tipoff and never looked in danger after holding the Magic to just 15 points in the first quarter.

Meanwhile, the Brooklyn Nets have split their first four games this season and they will be looking to stay hot after taking down the Wizards in a 104-90 home win on Monday. Kevin Durant led the team with 25 points, eight rebounds and four assists, Patty Mills provided the spark off the bench with 21 points on eight of 14 shooting while Bruce Brown and James Harden each scored 14 points. As a team, the Nets shot just 42 percent from the field and 10 of 35 from the 3-point line, but they were absolutely dominant at the start of the game as they outscored the Wizards by 38-20 in the first quarter to set up the easy win. Harden had a rough shooting night as he made just five of 17 from the field, Blake Griffin shot just one of seven while Joe Harris shot just three of 12 from the field to finish with 11 points.

Looking at the betting trends, the Heat are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games following a win and 1-4 ATS in their last five games as an underdog. The Nets are 13-3 ATS in their last 16 home games, 7-1 ATS in their last eight games following a win of more than 10 points and 15-6 ATS in their last 21 games overall.

Head to head, the under is 12-5-1 in the last 18 meetings overall, the Heat are 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings in Brooklyn and the Heat are 2-5 ATS in the last seven meetings overall.

The Heat have looked impressive in their two wins this season and they made light work of the Magic on Monday, so they will be full of confidence coming into this one. The Nets haven’t been as consistent so far as they can only rely on Kevin Durant and Patty Mills for big contributions on a nightly basis and Harden has yet to find his groove this season. This should be a close one, but with the Nets still shorthanded and Harden yet to find his groove, I have to go with the Heat to pull off the upset in a statement win.
