Miami has had the fortune of spending most of their season in Miami at their home court and are in the midst of one of the biggest road stretches in the NBA. This will be their 15th game on the road this season and easily their toughest test thus far. What’s been carrying this team is its defense and snail-pace. The Heat simply like to slow games down to play at their pace and that should make for an interesting contrast of styles here against this up-tempo Warriors team. This will be a good game for them to showcase that they are one one of the elite teams in the NBA and they’ll be sure to leave it all on the line in the spotlight game of the night.
The Warriors have won six-straight coming into this and scoring at will. They have at least 109 points in all of those games and have reached 128 in their last two. That’s simply hard to keep up with and considering they have an efficient defense based on metrics, it makes them nearly impossible to beat. That’s the beauty of this team, as there’s no weakness and almost no way to stop them. This will be one of their best tests of the season, as they play the second-est defense and one of the slowest teams in the league. If Golden State can score 110-plus against this Miami team, the sky’s the limit. That coveted 72-win mark is looking more and more like a possibility every day and they’re a good bet to continue winning here, as they come into this game as a 12-point favorite. That line alone shows how dominant this team is.
