Brooklyn Nets Travel to Miami to Face the Heat
Kevin Durant and the Brooklyn Nets have continued to add more injuries to their lineup. They’re fighting through it the best they can, but now both Seth Curry and Andre Drummond are hurt.
These two are key role players in the lineup for Brooklyn and made a huge impact on the team. However, recent games have proven the Brooklyn Nets can overcome these tough injuries.
The Miami Heat still sit atop the Eastern Conference, even after a recent loss. However, they’ll need to find a way to get back on track against the Brooklyn Nets. These two teams faced off recently, and the Heat emerged victoriously.
Can Miami get a win at home against one of basketball’s best teams? Or will they fall victim to Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant, and the Nets?
Game Preview: Brooklyn Nets at Miami Heat March 26th
The Brooklyn Nets average 112.11 points per game, ranking ninth in the NBA. This offense will be put to the test against one of the best defenses in the NBA. One thing the Nets have had trouble with in the past is scoring against good defenses.
Their most recent game against the Dallas Mavericks is a good example. The Mavericks and Luka Doncic won the game 113-111.
The Miami Heat allow just 104.79 points per game, ranking fourth in the NBA. However, their offense has had trouble putting points on the board.
In a recent game against the 76ers, the Heat was only able to score 106 points, losing the game. If their offense hiccups against the Nets, they’ll find themselves in trouble. The last thing you need is to fall behind to Kevin Durant.
Brooklyn Nets at Miami Heat Betting Prediction
The Brooklyn Nets faced the Miami Heat on March 3rd, 2022. The Heat came into the game as three-point underdogs, with only a small margin.
However, the Miami Heat pulled off a big upset on the road as they defeated Brooklyn, 113-107. This time, they get to play in their own arena and host the Brooklyn Nets. However, we think the big difference in this game is Kyrie Irving.
Irving will likely be active and on the court this game, and he wasn’t in the previous one. Because of this addition, we believe the Brooklyn Nets will come in again as the favorite. This time, however, the Nets will win the game and cover the spread.
The Nets are a much better team on the road this season. At the time of writing, they’re 21-14-2 ATS when on the road.
When it comes to betting on the total here, we’d recommend taking the under. The Miami Heat defense was able to slow down the Nets before. Although we don’t think it’ll be enough for them to win, it should keep the total pretty low.
