Miami Heat Betting

The Miami Heat seemed to have not lost their rhythm after the NBA All-Star Break and they are now on a four-game winning streak. This team now holds a firm grasp of the best record in the NBA Eastern Conference owning a two-game lead over the Chicago Bulls. Their most recent win was a very convincing victory over the Bulls with the final score settling at 112-99. The team’s suffocating defense ended DeMar DeRozan’s 30-point streak to an end. The Heat had Tyler Herro and Gabe Vincent leading the team in scoring with 20 points each while Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo each had 15.
