Tonight the Miami Heat is trying to continue its winning streak tonight versus the Milwaukee Bucks. The spread favors the Miami Heat by four points.
The Heat are finally beginning to heat up and win some games. The over-hyped Heat started the season by stumbling out of the gate, and quickly dashing any hopes of living up to the single season wins record Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls put up so many years ago.
Though the season started off shaky for the Heat, they’ve won four straight, including an 89-77 win over the Atlanta Hawks in a recent outing. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade are both putting points on the board consistently and rank in the top 15 of all scorers in the NBA. Chris Bosh has been lighting things up as of late as well. Against the Hawks, Bosh scored 27 points and pulled down 10 rebounds.
Stopping the Heat’s big three will be at the top of the Milwaukee Bucks’ To-Do list tonight. Andrew Bogut will have to have another big game if the Bucks plan to cover tonight. Bogut scored 31 points with 18 rebounds in win over the Orlando Magic. Bogut is also second in the NBA in Blocks per Game, averaging 2.62 per game.
The Heat are expected to win this one, and probably will.
Pick: Take the Miami Heat (-4)
