The Brooklyn Nets, coming off a blowout road loss to the Timberwolves, go on the road to take on the Miami Heat who are on a seven game winning streak and starting to look more and more capable of making a run at overcoming their early season woes and grabbing a playoff spot.
The Nets are a mess right now and look like the worst team in the league by a significant margin as their record sits at only 9-38. The Nets defense is the worst in the league as they allow a staggering 115.2 points per game, a number they are extremely unlikely to be interested in taking significant steps to improve upon.
The Miami Heat are the hottest team in the league and with a seven game winning streak should be very ready to take down the hapless Brooklyn Nets. The Heat have been playing excellent defense over the course of their winning streak and if they continue to do so things are going to continue to move in a positive direction from this plucky young team.
Take the Heat to get the win and cover in this one as they are the better team by a large margin and should easily win this one by double digits against a weak Nets. Team.
Miami Heat -8.5 -110
