The Miami Heat (28-25) will travel across country and head to the desert of Arizona to take on the Phoenix Suns (37-15).
Miami has won 5 of their last 6 games to climb into the 5th seed in the East. Phoenix was on a 7 game winning streak after holding off Utah at home Wednesday in an OT thriller 117-113 but were finally defeated by the Clippers 113-103 on Thursday.
This will be the final meeting between these sides as they met for the first time on March 23rd in Miami. Phoenix held a 15 point halftime lead and coasted the rest of the way to win 115-110. Deandre Ayton recorded a double double with 17 points and 16 rebounds for Phoenix and Kendrick Nunn scored a game high 25 points for Miami.
The Heat have won 5 of their last 6 games to sit at 5th in the Eastern Conference. Miami hasn’t had the season they have hoped for up to this point but this is still the team that reached the Finals a year ago as the 5th seed also.
Miami won most recently on Sunday, defeating Portland on the road 107-98. The Heat grabbed a 10 point 3rd quarter advantage and led by 18 points heading into the final quarter. Bam Adebayo scored a game high 22 points and Jimmy Butler followed with 20 points, 5 assists, and 4 rebounds.
Phoenix has quietly climbed to the top of the pack in the loaded Western Conference, boasting the leagues 2nd best record of 37-15. The only better record belongs to the league best Utah Jazz who are only 2.5 games ahead now thanks to the Suns head to head win last Wednesday.
The Suns had their 7 games win streak snapped after defeating Utah home last week in OT but had to play the next night in LA and lost to the Clippers. Phoenix quickly bounced back, winning Saturday in dominating fashion over the Wizards at home 134-106.
Devin Booker scored a team best 27 points in only 25 minutes and Chris Paul added a 13 point and 10 assist double-double. Former #1 pick Deandre Ayton recorded a 14 point and 10 rebound double-double in the winning effort.

Free Miami Heat vs. Phoenix Suns NBA Prediction:
Both teams are playing great ball lately, especially Phoenix as they own the 2nd best record in the league. The Suns are playing like an elite team this season and are looking to clinch their first playoff berth in 10 seasons.
Miami is a great defensive team but Phoenix is as well along with a better offense. This is a scorching team, winning 11 of their last 12 games. I’m taking Phoenix at home as they’ve been great there and Miami has been average on the road. Back Booker and Paul in this one.
