The NBA is back in action today as the Miami Heat will clash with the Washington Wizards.
Miami is heading into this game after a hard game against the Bucks.
On the other side, the Wizards lost in the game against Denver with a score of 113-108.
Miami Heat Form
The Heat have a good chance for a playoff spot. However, they need to keep winning in order to stay at the final playoff spot this season. They have only 1.5 games over Orlando. Also, the Hornets have a good chance of catching up on them. The team has a potential but it will be very hard.
On the offensive side of the game, the Heat score an average of 106 per game. Therefore, this record is enough for the 25th spot in the league in scoring. Also, they have an average of 46.3 combined with 24.1 assists per night. On the defensive side of the game, the Heat concedes an average of 105.7. Therefore, this record is enough for the 7th spot in the league in scoring defence.
Washington Wizards Form
The Wizards were surprised at home as the resilient Denver team marched in the nation’s capital.
This Washington team played well in that game. However, this defeat was their third one in a row.
The Wizards are placed on the 11th spot in the Eastern Conference, six games behind Miami with nine to play. Therefore, it is safe to say that they are out of the playoff race.
On the offensive side of the game, the Wizards score an average of 114.3 per game. Therefore, this record is enough for the 7th spot in the league in scoring. Also, they have an average of 41.8 combined with 26.5 assists per night. On the defensive side of the game, the Wizards concedes an average of 117 points per night. Therefore, this record is enough for the 29th spot in the league in scoring defence.
The Wizards are not playing well at the moment. Also, their playoff chances are slowly fading. Therefore, this will have a significant impact on their performances. On the other side, the Heat are playing well. After a hard game against the Bucks, they will need to get back to winning ways. They need to keep the paced in order to secure a playoff spot. Therefore, I expect that Miami will win this game. Take the Heat to score a dominant win.
