The Miami Heat are coming off their best showing of the season, and it's encouraging, but it's going to take more than that for me to look in their direction. On the end of a back to back against a rested and talented Golden State Warriors squad isn't an ideal spot. The Heat don't have the scoring to keep up with the Warriors, given what we've seen through 5 games. I'll lay the points with the home team if forced to pick this contest.
