I thought the Heat would be better than their sub .500 record is that the moment. This is a chance to get back on track to some extent but they are going to have to earn it against a spunky Nets team that is overperforming this season.
Last season, the squads played four times with the Celtics winning three of the four contests. The Celtics hold the all-time record having bested the Knicks 287 of their 467 matches.
Miami has lost their last three games of and six of eight heading into this one (which is just one reason it is surprising that they are the favourite. This team has potential but lacks that singular star so they really need to play together.
The leading scorer this season is Josh Richardson at 20ppg. There is nothing wrong with that but his game is more complimentary than dominant. Per the intro that is kind of the whole team. Lots of nice pieces.
The lone exception is Hassan Whiteside but he is super inconsistent. He will have physical matchups against the Nets but he needs to let the game come to him. I think it shows that the Heat do not have a true point guard.
Miami is lacking in efficiency on offense and defense. They actually shoot the three pretty well so perhaps they should do more of that but it has to be the right people. With Whiteside and rangy wings they should be better on defense.
Miami is still getting a lot of respect in the market. They may not be as good as we think and Brooklyn may be better than expected. Though neither are good.
Brooklyn knows they are not quite there yet but sometimes they play like they don’t care. In watching these guys a little I like that they play the hot hands instead of set rotations, I don’t get why other teams don’t do that more. They are young and take a lot of deep shots so they really fluctuate from game to game.
D’Angelo Russell is still an enigma. He scored 31 in his last game but still struggles in identifying what is and is not a good shot. He struggles with that and he is not athletic enough to beat other guards in this league regularly. He needs to be better at setting people up but at this point you have wonder if he ever gets there.
Caris LeVert is the leading scorer but he has been struggling lately. He is all angles and deception and has a game that is hard to guard even is he is not a smooth scorer. Not ideal as a go to guy because he is not a strong shooter.

Small spread so best bet is to to with who you think will win the game. This one is a tough handicap for sure.
I am going to stick with the home team, admitting that it might be the first time I have been on the Nets all season long.

There are better spots for your money but backing a home dog in a pick’em kind of game is not such a crazy idea.
