Heat knocked out

Miami is coming off a 122-99 win at home over Philadelphia last night, but the Heat were knocked out of the playoffs by wins from the Pistons and Hornets. Miami is 39-42 on the season, 20-20 on the road, 43-37-1 against the spread and 42-39 with the over.

The Heat have the league’s second-best defense, giving up 105.9 points per game while holding opponents to 44.2 percent shooting. Offensively, Miami is putting up 105.9 points per game while shooting 45.1 percent as a team. Josh Richardson, the team’s leading scorer, is out with a hip injury tonight. Dwyane Wade will be playing in his final NBA game tonight. He is averaging 14.9 points per game this season.

Nets seek 6 seed

Brooklyn is coming off a 108-96 win at Indiana on Sunday and they are looking to secure the sixth seed with a win tonight. They are 41-40 on the season, 22-18 at home, 44-37 against the spread and 41-40 with the over. They will either finish sixth or seventh in the East depending on tonight. If they win, they get the 6 seed.

The Nets are middle of the road on offense and defense this year. Brooklyn is putting up 112.2 points per game while shooting 45 percent. Defensively, the Nets are giving up 112.5 points per game while opponents shoot 45.7 percent against them. DeMarre Carroll and Allen Crabbe are both out tonight with injuries while Joe Harris is questionable with a foot injury. D’Angelo Russell is leading the team with 21.1 points and 7.0 assists per game while Spencer Dinwiddie is adding 16.9 points and 4.6 assists per contest.

NBA Betting Trends


The Heat are 9-3 against the spread in their last 12 road games and 26-10-1 ATS in their last 37 games on no rest.


The Nets are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games and 13-4 ATS in their last 17 games on two days of rest.


While Miami could still show some life tonight for Wade’s final game, I don’t expect the Heat to really throw their all into this game. I think they will give Wade a few more touches than probably are necessary. Brooklyn is the better team and I think they will come out ready to play, wanting to lock up the sixth seed. The Nets are at home and have something to play for, so I will take them as the favorite.

NBA Prediction: Brooklyn Nets -5.5
