Two teams sitting in and out of the playoff places of the East are clashing today, when the Miami Heat (32-32), who have won only once in their last 5 games, are hosting the Brooklyn Nets (32-32), who are looking to end their current small losing streak.
Date/Time: 03-02-2019, 19:30 EDT
Spread: Miami Heat -4
Miami Heat have a 27-34 record (32-29 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 10th place of the East. They have lost four of their last five matches and in their last game they lost on the road against the Rockets with a 118-121 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Josh Richardson with 17.5 ppg, adding 3.6 boards and 4 dimes per game. He is followed by Goran Dragic with 15.3 ppg and a team high 4.3 dimes per game.
Brooklyn Nets have a 32-32 record (35-29 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 6th place of the East. They have back-to-back losses and in their last game they lost at home against the Hornets with a 112-123 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by D’Angelo Russell with 20.7 ppg, adding a team high 6.7 dimes per game. He is followed by Spencer Dinwiddie with 17.2 ppg and 5 dimes per game.
In their two previous meetings earlier this season each team won once on the road (Heat by 13 points and Nets by 12). Heat have a 12-18 home record, while the Nets are 14-16 on the road. Nets are better offensively, scoring 112 ppg to Heat’s 105.7, while the Heat are better defensively, allowing 106.8 to Nets’ 112.7 ppg. Both teams have almost identical percentages both in field goals (45.1% to 44.9%) and in 3-pointers (35.4% to 35.3%). They are also almost equal in dimes made (24 to 23.9), in turnovers committed (14.5 each) and in boards grabbed (46.1 to 45.9). Heat are struggling lately and while Vegas odds give them a -4 spread, don’t expect them to beat the odds and pick the Nets in this one.
