Miami at Brooklyn

1.5 units on Miami +7.5 (-105) (risk 1.5 to return 2.93) RESULT: WIN
Brooklyn has plenty of talent, but the Nets need to start paying attention to defense as they have allowed 272 points in two games against Cleveland and 134 came in the paint. Kevin Durant didn't play on Friday and is questionable for tonight's game. Miami split a pair against Toronto and are hoping to get some of its players back from injury and illnesses. The Heat is 18-6 ATS its last 24 games versus teams with winning records, and it bounces back after double-digit losses with a 15-5 ATS record. Also, Miami has covered seven of its last 10 as an underdog and the Heat are 40-17 ATS after an ATS loss. Look for Miami to take advantage of the Nets' porous defense and keep this one close. Play the Heat.
