The Warriors’ ability to cover
The Warriors will be motivated going into this game as Golden State is coming off a rare blowout loss. After getting into a verbal argument with Devin Booker in the third quarter of Tuesday’s defeat, veteran Klay Thompson was dismissed for the first time in his career.
Thompson, Steph Curry, and Draymond Green were all out the last time the Warriors played the Heat, but Golden State still defeated Miami 118-104 to sweep the season series.
The Warriors now get a day off to regroup after their defeat to Phoenix, while Miami is taking part in its first road back-to-back of the year. Curry, who averages 30.3 points and 5.3 assists per game, will be the target of the Heat’s slowing tactics. Miami has previously lost games to Chicago, Boston, and Toronto, so they haven’t exactly shown that they can handle this kind of difficulty.
The Heat’s ability to cover
For the first time this year, Miami may be finishing a road back-to-back, but the Heat defeated Toronto 112-109 in the second game of a home back-to-back last weekend. They are playing a Golden State squad that is coming off an emotionally draining loss to Phoenix and may be feeling groggy. The Warriors lost numerous important backups from last year’s squad, and their rookie replacements haven’t been effective thus far this year.
