I was correct in my last NBA pick as the Nets (+1.5) were victorious in OKC 94-92 last Friday night. This evening I like the Warriors-Heat match-up.
The Golden State Warriors come in to tonight’s contest winners of their last 5 games. On Sunday they were victorious at OKC 91-86. They have won by 11 or more points in 7 of their 10 victories. The team is averaging 106.5 points per game, 3rd in the league. They are giving up 96.4 points per game, 10th in the league. They are 5-1 on the road this season. They are 2-0 versus Eastern Conference opponents. Tonight is the 2nd game of a 5 game road trip and is the 1st game of a back to back. Tomorrow night they play at Orlando. The Miami Heat have won 2 in a row and 3 of their last 4 games. On Sunday they were victorious at home versus the Hornets 94-93. They have scored less than 100 points in 8 of their games this season. The team is averaging 97.0 points per game, 20th in the league. They are giving up 96.4 points per game, 9th in the league. They are 4-4 at home this season. They are 2-2 versus Western Conference opponents. After tonight they don’t play again until Sunday at New York.
Last season Golden State and Miami split their 2 meetings. The Warriors have won their last 2 games in Miami.
Warriors vs Heat Prediction
The Warriors look like one of the best teams in the league this year, they’ve really bought in to 1st year head coach Steve Kerr’s system. I’m not sure the Heat will be able to keep up with the Warriors’ fast pace.
Take the Warriors -7
