Miami Heat Betting

The Miami Heat will be having their first game since heading to the NBA All-Star break. After having their five-game losing streak snapped by the Dallas Mavericks, the Heat was able to bounce back with an overtime victory over the Charlotte Hornets, 111-107. During that match, Kyle Lowry turned back time and went vintage by leading the team with 25 points, five assists and nine rebounds. Duncan Robinson had all of his shows from outside the three-point line and gave the team 21 points. Three other players contributed 15 points and it was a good way to end the first half of the season.
