|When:||Wednesday, March 9th, 2022, 07:30 PM ET|
|Venue:||FTX Arena, Miami|
Miami Heat will be hosting the game against Phoenix Suns in this Wednesday night NBA regular season matchup. The two teams are currently holding the best record in each Conference.
Sitting on top of the Western Conference, Phoenix Suns are currently at 52 wins and 13 losses. They are one of the favorites to challenge the reigning champion, Milwaukee Bucks, for the title.
And so is the case for the Miami Heat this season. Atop the Eastern Conference with a record of 44 to 22, the Heat will sure be a big wall for any eastern team aiming for the championship, even for the Bucks. Miami won 12 of their last 14 games, and they are looking to win again.

Dominating on both ends, the Miami Heat have been hot all season long. They are on a 3-game winning streak, and they are getting into the game with an almost full roster for this matchup. Markieff Morris is the only player listed as out for the game due to reconditioning. With the Suns being shorthanded on key players, the edge goes to the Heat for this matchup.
This matchup will not be as predictable as some may think, notwithstanding the fact that most oddsmakers put the Suns as the underdog. That is because for several past games, the Suns played without Devin Booker and Chris Paul, and yet they still manage to stomp on the league with 3 wins out of 4 games.
With Booker and Paul out of the game, the game is already decided. But here's the good news: Devin Booker is expected to come back this Wednesday, which is why this game will not be as predictable as it may seem. However, the Suns will still be in a big handicap as Cameron Johnson will not be attending as well due to quad contusion.
