Portland Trail Blazers are on a 3 game winning streak and it couldn’t have come at a better time. Portland sits in the 6th spot in the Western Conference, only 1 game behind the reeling Memphis Grizzlies. It is quite an accomplishment, as they weren’t even expected to get to 30 wins this season. Their home form has been huge for them this season as they have a 25-12 record in their home building on the year. There’s no issues yet on the injuries department, but look for the Blazers to be a small favorite in this matchup.

 

The Heat come into this game having dropped only 2 of their last 7 games and sit currently in a three-way tie for their division crown. The good news for them is that own the tiebreaker over the Atlanta Hawks and Charlotte Hornets, and on top of that clearly have the easiest schedule. In their most recent win, Miami beat the Sacramento Kings despite playing without their star Dwyane Wade. They preferred to rest him so that he would be fresh here in a much tougher matchup.

It’s difficult to get a read on this Brooklyn team, as they come into this game with a reasonable two-game winning streak. What’s even more surprising about those victories is who they came against, as they were versus two Eastern Conference playoff teams. That’s what can be baffling about the Nets, as they have the skill to play with anyone, but always fail to live up to their potential. The biggest problem with this team is the offense, as they hold the 27th spot in league scoring.

The Heat come into this match-up winning three of their last four, with the one defeat coming in expected circumstances. Miami played the powerful Spurs on the road in that one loss. San Antonio hasn’t suffered a loss in their home building all season. The key with the Heat is their defensive acumen, as they rank fourth in points given. Miami will have no issue slowing down this lackluster Brooklyn offense. That should be the difference maker in this game. Watch for Miami to be a double-digit favorite in this game.

Fantasy Basketball Miami heat vs New york Knicks

 

New York is on a terrible slump lately, having struggled both offensively and defensively. For some reason, they’ve won only 3 games out of the last 14. Even though they’ve won back to back games, the opponents were very weak. The Knicks will have a handful this game against Miami’s defense unit and their new offensive addition.

 

Miami has been playing very well lately despite dropping their last 2 games against the Celtics and the Warriors. Unfortunately for them, their leading scorer, Chris Bosh is under serious pressure from team doctors to sit down for the rest of the season. Dwayne Wade and the offensve has been getting unexpected great help from Hassan Whiteside and Goran Dragic. Whiteside played 4 straight games with an average of 19.5 pts and 17.3 rebounds while Dragic stepped up as well averaging 19.8 pts, 7 assists and 5.4 boards the last games. The real addition to their squad and danger for the Eastern Conference is the arrival of 7 time all star Joe Johnson. It will in interesting and essential addition for them

Miami Heat vs Houston Rockets Fantasy Basketball News – 02-02-16

Projected Lineup

Fantasy basketball

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.
