The Heat have scored victories over the Orlando Magic and the latest was against the Philadelphia 76ers with they defeated by a blowout of 31 points. The Heat are a tough team to beat in their home court but they are now on the road wherein they split their 24 games 50-50 with 12 wins and 12 losses. They need to be more consistent on the road and this team has leaned on the leadership of Jimmy Butler who gives them 20.3 points per night. Kendrick Nunn is the team’s rookie and second-leading scorer providing 16 points per game while Goran Dragic has been a prime candidate for the Sixth Man of the Year award as he comes off the bench with 15.8 points. They need to channel their pitbull defense and take wise shots in order to bring down the Clippers on the road.

This team boasts one of the deepest benches in the league with Montrezl Harrell and Lou Williams leading the second unit.
