They’re also without Wade, but this is a match-up they can’t afford to lose if they want to remain in the playoff hunt in the East.

Even with the injuries that the Heat have I’m surprised that they’re underdogs against the worst team in the NBA. Miami is fighting to remain in the playoffs, as they’re holding onto 8th place in the East.

Minnesota also comes into this game with multiple injuries as well. The Timberwolves have been playing horribly lately and things don’t appear like they’ll get any better at this point of the regular season.

I give the Heat the edge in the paint in this match-up. Bosh and Whiteside are playing great right now and I don’t think even Pekovic will be able to stop Whiteside. Bosh will also have his way with Young.

Young has been scoring at a better rate than he has all season, but he plays no defense at all. I also think that Deng will be able to shutdown Wiggins. Deng is a great defender and he’s over his recent illness.

Wiggins is getting a ton of minutes right now, as Minnesota is trying to develop him quickly. He has been great this season and only getting better, but when he has an elite defender on him he struggles.

The only positions I’m worried about are the two guards positions. Chalmers always seems to step it up when Wade is out, but Chalmers and Napier will have their hands full with Rubio and Martin.

Both Rubio and Martin are back from injuries and while they aren’t a great duo they’re better than what the Heat have at PG/SG. Napier is hungry on defense, but Martin should have a big game in this one.

What’s the biggest edge in this game? Defense! The Heat allow 96.2 PPG (2nd) while the Timberwolves are giving up 106.7 PPG (30th). That’s a huge difference and one that Minny won’t be able to overcome.

You can bet on the spread at +1.5 or take the ML in this one because I really don’t think the 1 point will come into play.

If Miami wasn’t fighting for a playoff spot maybe I wouldn’t be so high on them.

Miami Heat +1.5 (-110)

However, after losing last night they need to bounce back quickly with a win. They couldn’t have asked for a better opponent on the tail end of a B2B. Minny is the worst team in the NBA and it will show tonight.
