On Wednesday, January 27th, the Denver Nuggets and Miami Heat will face off in their first meeting of the 2020-21 campaign.
Had the Nuggets been successful in their effort to win the West last year these teams would’ve met in the NBA Finals. And, while both have work to do this season this match will offer a preview of a potential finals matchup this year.
The Heat holds the all-time record winning 34 of 66 matches. Last season the squads played twice with each team taking a game in the regular-season series.
Nikola Jokic has been masterful though the first quarter of the season and while he’s flirted with a triple-double his nightly double-double has kept Denver in games recently.
More importantly, Mike Malone seems to have convinced his young squad they need to bring a consistent defensive effort to return to the top of the ladder.

Entering this match they’ve climbed into a homecourt seed (fourth) and are 7-3 through their last 10 games having won four in a row.
This past weekend the Nuggets won a consecutive series versus the Suns and took down the Mavericks who didn’t have Kristaps Porzingis available.
Jokic led the way with a double-double of 20 points and 10 rebounds while Michael Porter Jr. posted 30 points.
JaMychal Green (17), Jamal Murray (16), and Gary Harris (10) were the other double-figure contributors.
PJ Dozier (hamstring) won’t play Wednesday and Greg Whittington (knee) remains out indefinitely.
No team has been hit harder by the combination of the pandemic and injuries than the Heat. Each game out Erik Spoelstra is trying to piece together a roster that can be competitive.
The consecutive losses to the Nets showcased the trials Miami faces. In the first match, they scored 124 points battling back but still lost by four points.
In the second game, they entered the final frame up one point (71-70) and locked in a defensive battle but simply didn’t have enough left in the tank or the players who could offset the scoring talents of the Nets three superstars.
Bam Adebayo led via a double-double of 26 points and 10 rebounds while Goran Dragic scored 21 and Kendrick Nunn chipped in 11 as the only other double-digit contributors.
Adebayo will have his hands full trying to limit Nikola Jokic both in terms of his scoring and his ability to create for his teammates.
As for Wednesday – Goran Dragic (groin) and Gabe Vincent (ankle) are both questionable while Mo Harkless (thigh) and Chirs Silva (hip) are definitely out.
Meanwhile, the quartet of Tyler Herro (neck), Meyers Leonard (shoulder), Jimmy Butler, and Avery Bradley both following health and safety protocols are all out indefinitely.
NBA Betting Trends:
- Over is 40-18-3 in DEN last 61 overall.
- Under is 7-3 in MIA last 10 home games.
- Road team is 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings.
Free Denver Nuggets vs. Miami Heat NBA Prediction:
Adebayo has done his very best to keep the Heat afloat but in games like this matchup where his defense will be so heavily relied upon it’s hard to imagine the Heat being competitive unless they get a few players back.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Nuggets ATS
Expect a ton of zone from Spoelstra’s crew to try to offset the brilliance of Jokic’s passing but again, unless the Heat gets some players back this will be a huge challenge especially with Porter Jr. back.
