Heat blasted by Nuggets

Miami lost by a score of 109-89 Tuesday night at Denver to drop to 5-2 overall and 2-2 on the road. The Heat trailed only 29-28 after one quarter, but were then outscored a combined 60-41 over the next two quarters. Jimmy Butler paced Miami with 16 points on 3-of-12 shooting plus 10-of-12 at the free throw line. He also notched seven rebounds, four assists and two steals. Kelly Olynyk contributed 13 points, seven boards and two steals. Kendrick Nunn had 11 points, four dimes, two caroms and two steals. Justise Winslow tallied 10 points and six rebounds. Meyers Leonard added 10 points in 18 minutes.

Suns take down Sixers

Phoenix handed visiting Philadelphia its first loss of the season Monday night, a 114-109 decision, for its third consecutive win. The Suns outscored the 76ers 59-48 in the second half of the victory. Devin Booker poured in 40 points on 15-of-19 shooting including 3-of-4 from 3-point range plus 7-of-7 at the charity stripe. He also registered four rebounds and three assists. Ricky Rubio tallied 21 points, 10 assists and seven boards. Arron Baynes contributed 15 points, seven caroms, six assists and two blocked shots.

NBA Betting Trends

Miami

The Heat are 6-0-1 ATS in their last seven Thursday games. Miami is 11-5-1 ATS in its last 17 road games.

Phoenix

The Suns are 5-0 ATS in their last five home games. Phoenix is 7-0 ATS in its last seven games overall.

Prediction:

These have been two of the NBA's most surprising teams in the early going this season and while Miami took it on the chin a couple nights ago, I expect it to bounce back strong here. But the Suns have been very good in all areas and have successfully navigated life without the suspended DeAndre Ayton thus far. Expect a very good game, but I'm not going against Phoenix on its home floor the way it has been going lately.
