Wednesday night NBA action will see the Washington Wizards take on the Miami Heat. These teams have met twice this year, resulting in the home team winning each time.
The Wizards are a mess this season, but did manage to snap a three-game losing last time out. They beat the Detroit Pistons in this game 106-100.
Surprisingly, offense has not really been the biggest issue for this Wizards team. They average 114.3 points per game. This ranks as the 6th best scoring offense in the NBA. They are right at the league average, shooting 46% from the field and are a top 10 three-point shooting side, averaging 36.5%.
This offense pretty much thrives around Bradley Beal. He is averaging 27.2 points per game. Also, he leads the team in assists with 6.3 per game. The Wizards actually have eight other guys that average at least 10 or more points per game, so they are easily one of the most balanced teams.
Defense is where the Wizards start to struggle. They are the worst scoring defense, allowing 119.8 points per game. Teams shoot 48.8% from the field, which is last in the league for the Wizards.
The Heat have about half a dozen guys who could go off, so that is going to be a huge problem for a team that cannot defend.
The Heat bounced back from a loss to the Spurs and picked up a win against the Sacramento Kings in their last game. The score to this game was 118-113 and they needed overtime to pull out the victory.
Offensively, the Heat are not quite as strong as Washington, but they still average 111.6 points per game. What they do have going from them is how good they shoot the ball. From the field, they average 47.2%, 4th in the league. As for three-point shooting, they average 37.6% and rank 2nd.
Jimmy Butler continues to lead this team in scoring with 20.2 points per game. He does have plenty of help as six other guys average 10 points or more and three of these guys average 15 points or more. For example, Kendrick Nunn has really stepped it up and is second on the team with 16.3 points per game. Bam Adebayo averages a double-double with 16 points per game and 10.5 rebounds per game.
Defensively, the Heat are allowing 107.9 points per game. However, over just their last five games, they are allowing 110.4 points per game. Note that they are still allowing teams to shoot just 44.3% from the field and 32.7% from beyond the arc.
Plain and simple, the key to another Miami home win is slowing down Bradley Beal. Beal did not play in the last meeting, but will look to facilitate the offense here for Washington.

Free Washington Wizards vs. Miami Heat NBA Prediction:
The Heat are now 19-1 at home, so I do not see them losing to this below average Wizards squad.
I do believe the Wizards are going to score their fair share of points and because their defense is poor, they are going to allow a ton as well. That being said, I will take the over as my free pick.
