The return of Hassan Whiteside marked the end of Miami’s three-game losing streak. Both the losing streak and the win to end it came at home, though. Now begins a stretch of six in a row on the road, beginning in Denver, Colorado.
The Heat really missed Hassan Whiteside while going 2–3 on a five-game homestand. Miami lost to some good teams but it is a significant drop-off from Whiteside to Bam Adebayo, who was inserted into the starting lineup in Whiteside’s place.
The obvious plus is that the first-round pick out of Kentucky got some early playing time and starting experience in the first few weeks of his NBA career. Adebayo has told reporters that the immediate playing time has opened his eyes to what it will take to succeed in the NBA.
The Heat still hasn’t defeated a quality opponent on the season. It has beaten Indiana, Atlanta and Chicago, all at home. This road trip features six matchups and Miami is a sure underdog in five of them, including Friday night in Denver.
The Nuggets came back home after splitting four games on the road to torch the Raptors on Wednesday night. The Raptors had been one of the more impressive teams in the first few weeks of the season so an 18-point win in the Pepsi Center is no small feat.
Jamal Murray led the scoring with 24 on just 10 field goal attempts. He wasn’t playing well and was down on himself after Denver’s first five games but has bounced back to play well in its last few. He’s their best outside shooter and when he’s spacing the floor with Jokic and Millsap underneath, Denver is awfully difficult to defend.
Gary Harris also scored 15 on just eight shots in his ultra-efficient fashion. He’s scored 14 in all but one of Denver’s eight games thus far and continues to get better and better ever since he came into the league as an NBA-ready rookie in 2014. You have to love Harris’ game if you appreciate good basketball.

Free Miami Heat vs. Denver Nuggets NBA Prediction:
Miami is simply overmatched. Whiteside is back but he won’t have nearly as big an impact in this game as he is used to having because of the way Denver’s bigs can stretch the floor. The Nuggets would be favored at home against just about every team in the NBA, save Golden State, perhaps OKC and and a healthy Houston team. Those last two opponents could be one or two point favorites.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Denver
If Toronto was a blowout, Miami should be too. I’ll take the Nuggets and give anything fewer than 10 when the number is available.
