On Thursday, the Miami Heat (7-4) are taking on the Brooklyn Nets (6-5) in an attempt to win their seventh consecutive match.
After surreptitiously defeating the Hornets 111-105 on their travels on Tuesday, the Miami Heat have emerged quietly as one of the NBA’s hottest sides. They now seek to extend their current winning run to 6 games. Miami’s strength is their ability to force turnovers for the second-greatest rate and to limit the number of free throws allowed. Additionally, the Heat limit opponents to 37.1% shooting from midfield. It’s not all that good, though; the opposition has made 38.6% of its threes as well as 65.2% of its rim shots. But every evening they have a chance since they give up the 8th-fewest points per match. Miami may pose a greater threat if only their offense, which is now without Tyler Herro and Caleb Martin, could perform stronger. In contrast, this group’s offensive ranking of 25th is a result of their preference for shooting in the middle of the field.
The Brooklyn Nets, who have defeated the Magic 124-104 at home on Tuesday, will be looking for their third consecutive triumph. They have been playing well lately, having won 3 of their last 4 games. Having Ben Simmons, the team’s top rebounder and assist leader, and Cam Thomas, the team’s top scorer, not being available, Brooklyn could have gotten away with losing on Tuesday. Rather, they emerged victorious in the In-Season Tournament match by a score of 20 points. With 29 points and nine assists, Spencer Dinwiddie led a squad that NBA.com currently ranks 7th in terms of offensive rating. This Nets squad is most effective when they attempt 44.6% of its shots from beyond the arc and make 38% of them. Brooklyn’s defensive ranking is 15th. Nic Claxton and Cameron Johnson, two potent defenders who both happen to be currently healthy, were absent for the most of that.
