We'll find out more about these Miami Heat on this west coast road trip, but for now they're making a case for the best team in the league. The Denver Nuggets are very talented and capable of turning things on at any moment, but they've been inconsistent out of the gate and the offense has come and gone at times. The Miami Heat look like the better team here, and I don't care where the game is played. In a pick em spot, give me the better team. That's the Heat.
