The Brooklyn Nets play host to the Miami Heat at the Barclays Center on Saturday night. Here’s a Heat vs Nets Prediction.

Miami Heat

The Miami Heat have been in great form as they've won nine of their last 11 games overall, but they will be hoping to bounce back in this one after coming up short to the Knicks in a 100-98 road loss last night. Jimmy Butler led the team with 23 points, Bam Adebayo added 21 points with 12 rebounds while Josh Richardson and Jaime Jacquez Jr scored 15 points each. As a team, the Heat shot just 39 percent from the field and 10 of 37 from the 3-point line as they exploded for 37 points in the third quarter to build a 21-point lead, only to go ice-cold and score just 11 points in the fourth quarter to allow the Knicks to slip away in a poor finish.

Miami Heat Player Facts

  • Jimmy Butler ranks T11th in the Eastern Conference amongst qualified players for steals per game (1.4) this season.

Brooklyn Nets

Meanwhile, the Brooklyn Nets have been in a rut as they've lost four of their last six games and they will be hoping to snap a three-game skid after getting beaten by the Hawks in a heartbreaking 147-145 overtime road loss on Wednesday. Mikal Bridges led the team with 45 points, 10 rebounds and four assists on 16 of 31 shooting, Spencer Dinwiddie added 26 points with 12 assists, Cameron Johnson added 23 points while Nicolas Claxton chipped in with 22 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks. As a team, the Nets shot 48 percent from the field and 15 of 35 from the 3-point line as they rallied back from a 15-point deficit in regulation, only to come up short in overtime where they just couldn't stop the Hawks' Trae Young who scored 14 points by himself in the period.

Brooklyn Nets Player Facts

  • Spencer Dinwiddie ranks 17th amongst qualified players for assists per game (5.8) this season.
  • Dorian Finney-Smith ranks 19th amongst qualified players for 3P% (44.8%) this season.

Matchup/League Facts

  • The Nets rank 1st in the league for rebounds per game this season (47.6).
  • The Nets rank 30th in the league for steals per game this season (5.7).
  • The Heat rank 29th in the league for blocks per game this season (3.3).
  • The Heat rank 2nd in the league for opponent turnovers per game this season (16.6).

Peter's Pick

The Heat are going to be shorthanded again with Duncan Robinson and Tyler Herro still out, while the Nets are still missing Ben Simmons, Cam Thomas and Dennis Smith Jr. The Nets are more than capable of getting the win at home and they've opened as favorites here, but the Heat are clearly the team in better form and I think they still get the job done despite playing this one on zero days rest. This should be a close one, but I like the Heat with the points in this spot.
