Jimmy Butler paced Miami with 21 points on 6-of-11 shooting plus 9-of-9 at the free throw line. He also registered seven assists and three rebounds.

James Harden led Houston with 32 points on 11-of-24 shooting including 2-of-15 from 3-point distance plus 8-of-10 at the charity stripe. He also contributed 11 assists and nine rebounds. Russell Westbrook accounted for 27 points, six dimes and five boards. Clint Capela racked up 21 points, 23 caroms and three assists. P.J.

NBA Betting Trends

Miami

The Heat are 5-0 ATS in their last five games playing on one day of rest. Miami is 12-3-1 ATS in its last 16 games overall.

Houston

The Rockets are 4-1 ATS in their last five home games. Houston is 1-6 ATS in the last seven meetings.

Prediction:

It's difficult to not like the Heat with the points here. Miami is playing with a ton of confidence and has a leader in Jimmy Butler with an unmatched work ethic. With Houston not clicking on all cylinders right now, I think the Heat can take advantage with their deep roster and ability to hit you at all angles. I don't know if Miami will win this one straight up, but take the points and look for what should be a solid performance by the visitors.
