The Heat are up against the Nuggets 23-4 record at home.
Tonight the Miami Heat will go up against the Denver Nuggets and their home record of 23-4. Their record for the season is currently at 25-29 but they are in 2nd place in the Southeast Division. In a wave of bad luck, the Heat has only won 3 games in the last 7 matchups. They will come into tonight’s game following a 2 game losing streak and the Warriors as their last opponents. Taking the lead on the floor with the most points is shooting guard Josh Richardson with an average of 17.8 points, 3.6 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game. Averaging 13.1points per game center Hassan Whiteside is pulling down 12.6 rebounds. Another asset to the starting lineup is point guard Goran Dragic who is dishing out 4.9 assist, grabbing 3.1 rebounds and racking up 15.3 points per game.
On the defending end tonight the Denver Nuggets have a record of 37-18 and they lead the Northwest. They will be holding off the Heat whose road record is not the best. Although they have won 6 of the last 10 games, they are currently on a 3 game losing streak which they hope to end tonight. Leading the Nuggets to the post season is center Nikola Jokic with 20.4 points, 10.5 rebounds and 7.7 assists per game. Jamal Murray is 2nd in the stats with 18.6 points, 4.3 rebounds and 5 assist. With support from Paul Milsap and others the Nuggets have a pretty good chance to walk away with the victory.
