Miami is struggling a bit and has lost three of their last five games but the three losses were by a combined total of 15 points. They are close but no cigar right now. Butler has missed three of Miami’s first nine games and hasn’t seemed to find his legs yet this season Outside of Andre Iguodala and Chris Silva, all six of the other Heat players were efficient offensively. Miami should be able to score, but their defense will determine IF they can cover.

Heat will be shorthanded again on the road against the Sixers, the value is on their side as 11 point underdogs.
We don’t have a clue who is or isn’t playing but we know the Heat and its bench players are a scrappy bunch and nearly beat the 76ers with their second team and covered a nine-point spread as underdogs. Unlike many NBA teams who have a clear hierarchy of players on their team, the Heat have a more fluid roster where they play certain players more in different situations according to matchups and momentum.
The absences of half the team mean that this is a golden opportunity for the remaining players to show that they are worthy of more playing time, or in the case of two-way players Max Strus and Gabe Vincent, a roster spot. The Heat caught the Sixers in a flat spot, but they have the scoring ability to cover and even pull the upset if shooters like Robinson, Herro, Vincent, and Strus get hot. The Heat have the coaching edge with Spoelstra, and I expect him to have made the necessary adjustments to keep this game close. Take the 11 points and run to the bank.
