The Heat are one of the favorites to contend for the Larry O'Brien trophy this season. This is Jimmy Butler's real chance to pursue the title with a proper team, and he will marvelously perform as he did 2 seasons ago in the NBA Finals. Bam Adebayo and Tyler Herro have matured over 2 seasons, and they are reliable on both ends now more than ever.
Miami's management deserves applause for the addition of Kyler Lowry and PJ Tucker, as that moves made the team much more versatile in both offense and defense. They are the most complete team in the league at this point, and we sure will see a show from the Miami Heat in the post-season. For this matchup against OKC, Jimmy Butler and PJ Tucker have been listed as questionable.
Oklahoma City Thunder
OKC are a rebuilding team, and they have a young line-up. The bad results they have been performing are justifiable, and they are showing a very promising future. The Thunder just need a little bit more experience, and perhaps a move or two in the offseason is all they need to get a solid performance from this young line-up. For this game against the Heat, Luguentz Dort and the shining rookie Josh Giddey have been listed as out.
