The Line: Golden State Warriors -13.5 -- Over/Under: 204 See the Latest Odds
The Golden State Warriors play host to the Miami Heat tonight at the Oracle Arena.
The Warriors will be gunning for a seventh straight win tonight after making light work of the Kings in a 128-116 road win on Saturday. Stephen Curry connected on eight 3-pointers to lead the team with a game-high 38 points and 11 assists while Draymond Green added 25 points as the Warriors shot a sizzling 56 percent from the field and 19 of 37 from the 3-point arc to take down the Kings. A smaller lineup was again the winning strategy for the Warriors who improve to 35-2 on the season and 18-2 on the road.

Meanwhile, the Heat had won four of their last five before getting blown out in a 98-83 defeat at Utah on Saturday. Chris Bosh led the team with 24 points on 11 of 16 shooting while Goran Dragic added 16 points, but Dwayne Wade had just eight points on three of 17 shooting which really hurt the Heat in the second half where they were outscored by 53-34. Wade is listed as probable for tonight's game against the Warriors as he is dealing with a shoulder concern. Miami is now 22-15 on the season and 7-7 on the road.
In ATS trends, the Heat are 4-1-1 ATS in their last six games following a loss and 5-2 ATS in their last seven road games, while the Warriors are 1-3-1 ATS in their last five games against a team with a winning record and 0-4-1 ATS in their last five against the Eastern Conference.
Head to head, the Heat are 0-2-2 ATS in the last four meetings overall and 6-2-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings in Golden State.
The Warriors will win this game and remain the hottest team in the league, but the Heat are coming off a bad loss so I like their chances in keeping this game close if Wade suits up tonight.
