Two of the Playoff contenders will battle it out tonight in Miami, Florida. The Brooklyn Nets are only one game after the Philadelphia 76ers and with the regular season coming to a close next month every game begins to matter even more. The Nets have won 7 of 10 and are on a one winning streak. But they face a Miami Heat that have lost their 3 latest games.
Fans back in the building weren’t enough Miami in their latest games but the crowd will have the joy to have both Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant on the court for the Nets tonight. This is important since that opens the opportunity for a player speciel on Kyrie Irving. I have Kyrie Irving going under 25.5 at -125. When Durant is back in the starting lineup fewer shots goes Kyries direction. Naturally fewer shots leads to fewer potential points. So lets hope for a Durant show tonight.
Another interesting Player speciel for tonight is Joe Harris. He is killing it from the Three-Point line and his total tonight is only over/under 2.5 made 3-pointshots. With the Miami defense being on high alert with Durant and Kyrie the opportunity for Joe Harris to shoot some open 3-points attempts should arrive. In his 3 games prior he hit this 2/3 and with a solid 11 on 19 shooting with a solid 57.89%. You can find this at -130.
The bookmakers offers us 223.5 for the over/under, but it will be inresting to see if a close contested matchup will end with a fast paced game or a calculated affair that would make every point count double. The Nets coming to Miami as the favourites but we know everything can happen in the NBA.
I think there may be some value in playing ‘over’ the total line, Miami Heat allow 107 points pr game and Nets a little more at 114.3. That puts us close to the total for tonights game. The difference in having Durant back i believe to score the same amount. It puts us right on the over/under line. But in a close matchup i see the offense as the strongest unit tonight with a lot of shooters in tonights game. I see a fast paced matchup where the teams will provide a beutiful contested match.
Plays for tonight:
Over 223.5 -110
Kyrie Irving Under 25.5 Points -125
Joe Harris Over 2.5 3PM -130
