Miami Heat vs Portland Trail Blazers prediction

The Portland Trail Blazers will have their chances to compete in this game given that they're at home with the rest advantage. However, the Trail Blazers continue to rack up the losses, and they're not covering numbers, and it's harder and harder to back them with confidence. The Miami Heat are quietly getting their act together, which they usually do around this time, and they're fresh off one of their best wins of the season. The Heat will also have Butler back from suspension, while Herro and Rozier are getting closer to returning as well. The Heat are a team to watch down the stretch. I'll lay the points with the Heat.
