Miami Heat Vs Philadelphia 76ers Odds and Prediction: Game Preview:
The Miami Heat are currently 5th in the east with a 16-12 record. The Miami have already missed both Bam Adebayo and Jimmy Butler for about half of their games and they have shown that they can win without their best players. Even without their best players, they have shown that they can win against any team. They had a great win against the Bucks and handed the first loss for the Bucks with their big three on the court.
In the last ten games, the Miami Heat won four games and have lost 6, they were without Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo for most of their last 10 games. The Heat are struggling offensively without their best two players which is understandable.
The Heat are ranked 23rd in offensive rating and 20th in the defensive rating in the last 10 games. The Heat in the 4 games they won in the last 10 games have stepped up offensively with an offensive rating of 117.2.
The Heat are a very good team even without Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo. They have shown that on the court with their performances. When fully healthy this team can be a real contender for the championship.
The 76ers had a really good start and then Joel Embiid missed a few games because of Covid-19. Then as he came back, and they had two back-to-back wins against the Hornets on the road. They had a very impressive win against the Golden State Warriors at home. Unlike the Heat the 76ers without Joel Embiid have been really struggling.
Joel Embiid and Seth Curry have been deemed questionable for the game against the Heat. The watch will be on the availability of Embiid and Seth Curry. The 76ers are 12-5 when Embiid places and they are 3-8 without Joel Embiid on the court. They struggle offensively without Joel Embiid on the court.
The 76ers will be hoping to see Joel Embiid and Seth Curry on the court on Wednesday but if they are not available then their bench has to step up for them to get past the Heat.
