The Heat are the midst of a four-game winning streak and took the Southeast division lead from the Atlanta Hawks. The best part of that hot stretch is that they have been playing without Hassan Whiteside, their regular center. Whiteside leads the league in blocks and has anchored this defense all season long. This proves that Miami has the depth to be successful. Allowing under 93 points a game during that winning streak, Erik Spoelstra’s team are also thriving in defense. They hold the second spot in the NBA for points allowed. Miami’s fab-five are as good as it gets, when healthy. They will be a strong opposition come playoff time.
The Rockets lost their last three games that included a thriller 123 to 122 loss to the Washington Wizards. What’s been weird for the Rockets this season’s Rockets team, is that every time they look to be finally out of their rut, they fall right back into another one. Dwight Howard has been ejected in back-to-back games, putting his team into an awful situation. Those ejections seems to overshadow his best season in a Houston uniform. The biggest issue with this team is the defense. They rank 29th in the NBA for points allowed. James Harden and company does have a superior three-point shooting capability, that they are likely to execute against the Heat.
