Trail Blazers vs Heat prediction

The Heat should be massive favorites as the Trail Blazers are terrible, not trying to win and a lot of their key guys are injured. However, the Heat consistently show they don't care about the regular season and lose games they shouldn't. Heck, the Heat have scored less than 100 points in 4 of their last 8 games. Robinson is still out for Miami, along with Herro and Richardson. Remember a couple of weeks ago, the Heat lost outright as double-digit favorites to the Wizards. The Heat should win but double-digit chalk? No dice. Give me the Trail Blazers and the points.
