The Miami Heat are currently in the midst of a grueling 7 game Western Conference road trip which will continue on Wednesday night with a matchup against Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors at the Chase Center. This will be the first matchup between the two sides this season. Both teams are playing better ball lately after starting poorly as Miami has won 4 of their last 6 and Golden State has won 3 of their last 4.
Miami appears to be a shell of their former selves which ended last season on such a high note including a postseason bubble run that took them all the way to the NBA finals. They are currently 11-16 and sit in the 10th seed which is no where close to where they expected to be approaching the All-Star weekend.
The team looked to be turning things around winning 4 straight games but have since dropped 2 straight on the road including a 125-118 loss on Monday night against the the Los Angeles Clippers. Jimmy Butler recorded a triple double with 30 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists and while Bam Adebayo chipped in 27 points and 10 boards for the Heat in the loss. Tyler Herro also added 27 points off of the bench for the Heat. The team shot just 8-for-36 from 3-point range on the night.
Golden State Warriors
Golden State topped the Cleveland Cavaliers 129-98 on Tuesday night behind another monster game from Stephen Curry, who knocked down seven 3-pointers en route to a game-high 36 points. Curry has been on an absolute tear over the past 10 games scoring at least 25 points while shooting over 50 percent in each of those contests. Michael Jordan was the last guard to accomplish the feat in the 1995-1996 season. Curry is averaging 34.5 points per game on 51.5 percent shooting from deep during the span.
Curry leads the way with averages of 30.1 points 5.9 assists and 5.3 rebounds, Andrew Wiggins has slowly returned to form and sits as the second leading scorer with 17.5 points and 4.6 rebounds. Rookie #2 overall pick has had a solid year in the center role so far averaging 12.2 points and a team best 6.1 rebounds per game.

Free Miami Heat vs. Golden State Warriors NBA Prediction:
Miami has looked better as of late but I’m still not as confident in them as I am in Golden State. Stephen Curry has been on a shooting barrage as of late and the rest of the team has slowly fallen into shape to support him. The Warriors will get plenty of 3’s to go in thanks to Curry and his spacing ability and if that’s the case Miami could be in trouble as they’ve struggled to shoot the deep ball as of late. I’ll lay the points with the Warriors at home in this small spread.
