Take the Heat minus the points. The Heat were recently drilled by the Pacers in the last “regular” season game in the bubble. That game meant nothing as far as I'm concerned. In games that did matter the Heat handled the Pacers. The Pacers have gotten a boost offensively from the play of T.J. Warren but Oladipo hasn't been the same since his injury. Both teams are solid defensively but the Heat in my opinion are the deeper squad and will also have the best player on the floor in Jimmy Butler. Look for Butler and Warren to really go after each other in this series as both players don't seem to like each other. I think Butler can get the better of Warren if or when that happens. Heat minus the points today.
