The Heat are on a five-game losing streak right now, including a 105-100 loss at Chicago back on Saturday. Miami is now 7-17 on the season and 11-13 against the spread. The Heat just haven’t been a consistent offense, as they average only 96.8 points per game this season. That currently ranks 28th in the league. Defensively, Miami is only giving up 100.5 points per game, but the offensive owes mask their defensive ability. Miami continues to deal with injuries as Dion Waiters, Justise Winslow and James Johnson are all dealing with issues. Johnson could play through his strained rotator cuff today, but Winslow and Waiters are both out. The three combined for over 35 points per game.

Washington has had a nice offensive surge as of late, scoring at least 100 points in seven of their last eight. The issue when they put up the points is their defense, but they are facing a Miami team that is without a big chunk of its scoring and not a team that tends to be able to get into shootouts. The Heat have also been bad at home, going 2-8. Look for the Wizards to go to Miami and pick up a win.
