Miami Heat Looks to Continue Hot Streak
The Heat are coming into this matchup with a two-game win streak. Their most recent victory was a 113-107 outing against the Brooklyn Nets.
So far, the Heat are averaging 109.5 points per game and allowing 104.8. This ranks 17th and fourth in the league, respectively.
One of the key differences for the Heat is that they shoot from three better than anyone in the league. They rank first in that regard and shoot 37.4 percent from beyond the arc.
In addition, they rank fourth in the league in defense for field goal percentage, three-point percentage, and second in defensive rebounds. However, they could potentially be without star players Jimmy Butler and Victor Oladipo, as they are questionable for game time.
Sixers Need a Win to Get Back on Track
The Sixers have lost their last two straight road games and look to correct this back home. Their most recent away loss was a 114-109 result against the Phoenix Suns.
They are averaging 108.7 points per game and are giving up 106.7. This ranks 20th in the league offensively and seventh on the defensive end. This does not have much room for error, but it has worked for them so far.
One of their best qualities as a team is that they are the best free throw shooting team in the league, at 82.2 percent. It also helps tremendously that they have Joel Embiid, who is a front runner for an MVP season and averaging 30 points and 11.8 rebounds per game.
However, Embiid is day-to-day and will look to continue evaluating his sore back. For someone that leads the league in scoring, this is a huge burden every night.
Heat vs 76ers Odds
On average, the market has given the Heat a slight advantage when looking at the point spreads. However, the Sixers are at home and have looked great in Philly.
