Minnesota scores 113.0 points per game on average as a team and has 5 players who score in double digits. Minnesota’s superior play on defense has been the secret to their success this season rather than their offensive efficiency.



Miami is 2 games trailing the Orlando Magic in 1st place in the Southeast Division with a record of 15-11. In their last game, Miami beat the Chicago Bulls 118-116, with Jimmy Butler‘s game-winning basket coming at the buzzer. Out of their last 4 games, Miami has won 3. With averages of 22.2 points and 9.9 rebounds per game, Bam Adebayo leads Miami in both scoring and rebounding.

Miami scores 112.8 points per game on average as a team and has 6 players who are currently scoring in double figures. The return of Bam Adebayo (last played on November 30) and Tyler Herro (last played on November 8) to the Heat should provide a spark, but it might take some time for them to get used to each other again while figuring out rotations.
