The Brooklyn Nets continue on the road and will visit the Miami Heat on Saturday night. This is the fourth time these teams face off this season, Miami has dominated Brooklyn all season and won the last 3 games.

INJURIES: Butler, Herro, Robinson, Tucker and Martin are questionable.

BETTING TRENDS

Brooklyn are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games on the road.

The total has gone OVER in 9 of Brooklyn's last 11 games on the road.

Miami are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games.

Miami are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games at home.

Prediction

Miami has 5 of their best players questionable again so there's a chance that they could be shorthanded for this game. Miami has struggled lately failing to cover in 6 of the last 6 games and in 5 of the last 5 at home. The Nets need to win every game if they want to get a direct pass to the playoffs. Kyrie and Durant are on fire and with the Heat having many players in doubt I think the Nets are the play.

PICK: Nets -4.5 (-110)
