Miami Heat Betting
The Miami Heat are having a hard time keeping their face afloat on the water as they lost four of their last six. Jimmy Butler has been out and serving quarantine and he will still be unavailable for this game. Bam Adebayo has been trying to fill in the shoes of the team’s leader while Goran Dragic is playing at the starting five. Tyler Herro is also out for this game and that gives an opportunity for Kendrick Nunn to showcase what was his potential from last year. He had 22 points during their last game and he looks good with Dragic on the floor. This team lacks depth and that was their weakness during their last games.
Players to watch: B. Adebayo C 12 GP 12 GS 31.7 MIN 18.6 PTS 1.7 OR 7.6 DR 9.3 REB 5.2 AST 0.8 STL 1 BLK 3.5 TO 2.6 PF 1.5 AST/TO 22.63 PER

Brooklyn Nets Betting
The Brooklyn Nets have been struggling since Kyrie Irving went back to the team. This team lost twice to the worst offense in the league in the Cleveland Cavaliers. James Harden has been adjusting to be more of a ball-handler for this team and let Irving do the scoring. Kevin Durant will most probably play in this game and it seems that he is the glue guy in this new “Big Three”. Depth has been the thing that they risked on shipping Harden in the recent blockbuster trade and they sorely missed the services of Taurean Prince and Jarrett Allen. Things should pick up for the next soon and it will have to involve Kevin Durant staying healthy.
Players to Watch: K. Durant PF 12 GP 12 GS 36.3 MIN 31.3 PTS 0.4 OR 7.1 DR 7.5 REB 6 AST 0.8 STL 1.3 BLK 3.7 TO 2.1 PF 1.6 AST/TO 28.32 PER
K. Irving PG 9 GP 9 GS 34.4 MIN 29.4 PTS 0.8 OR 3.7 DR 4.4 REB 5.7 AST 1.3 STL 0.7 BLK 2.3 TO 2.8 PF 2.4 AST/TO 27.39 PER
J. Harden SG * 4 GP 4 GS 42 MIN 26.5 PTS 0.8 OR 7.5 DR 8.3 REB 12.3 AST 1.5 STL 0.5 BLK 5.8 TO 3.3 PF 2.1 AST/TO 21.97 PER.
