The Miami Heat invade the Wells Fargo Center to take on the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night. Here’s a Heat vs 76ers Prediction.

Miami Heat

The Miami Heat have been on a nice run as they've won five of their past seven games overall and they will be eager to keep it going after blowing past the Bucks in a 123-97 road win last night. Nikola Jovic led the team with 24 points, seven rebounds and three assists, Duncan Robinson added 23 points with five assists while Bam Adebayo tallied a triple-double of 16 points with 12 rebounds and 11 assists. As a team, the Heat shot 51 percent from the field and 19 of 40 from the 3-point line as they set the tone with 40 points in the first quarter to jump out in front by double digits right away and they just kept their foot on the gas, outscoring the Bucks in every quarter to finish with the statement win on the road. The Heat will face the Pelicans after this game.

Philadelphia 76ers

Meanwhile, the Philadelphia 76ers look to have moved on from their four-game losing slide as they are now aiming for a third straight win after sneaking past the red-hot Cavaliers in a 123-121 road win on Monday. Kelly Oubre Jr and Buddy Hield led the team with 24 points each, Tyrese Maxey added 22 points with nine assists while Cameron Payne chipped in with 15 points off the bench. As a team, the 76ers shot 54 percent from the field and 11 of 26 from the 3-point line as they traded with the Cavaliers in a really close contest, until midway through the fourth quarter where the 76ers went on a pivotal 11-2 run to escape with the gritty road win despite missing Joel Embiid.

Heat vs 76ers Prediction

The Heat are still short handed with Josh Richardson and Jimmy Butler still out, while the 76ers are still missing Joel Embiid and Tobias Harris, but they are expecting to have Kyle Lowry play his first game in this one. The 76ers have the advantage of extra rest as the Heat are playing their second game of a back to back set, but the Heat looked fantastic in last night's big win over the Bucks and I think they can replicate that effort against this depleted 76ers team who were struggling mightily before their narrow win on Monday.
