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.

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.
