Miami Heat vs Brooklyn Nets prediction

The Brooklyn Nets are at home, and they've won 6 of the last 7 meetings against the Heat, so I can understand if leaning toward the Nets. However, the Nets have also lost 7 of their last 8 games and have failed to cover 8 of their last 10 games. The Heat won't have Butler or Jaquez Jr., and Love is questionable, but they continue to find ways to win despite the constant lineup changes. Getting the Heat and a free bucket feels like a steal given the Nets issues. Give me Miami.
