The Golden State Warriors travel to South Beach to battle the Miami Heat tonight.
The Warriors have won 13 of their last 14 games and looked pretty good in the team's 102-92 win at Atlanta on Monday. Stephen Curry dominated the game with 36 points and eight assists, Klay Thompson added 27 points while Draymond Green added six points, 14 rebounds and nine assists as the Warriors hit the ground running and led by as many as 23 points before having to battle late after the Hawks rallied all the way back to take the lead early in the fourth quarter. With the win, Golden State improves to 50-5 overall leaving them in the prime position to break 70 wins for the season.

Meanwhile, the Heat will be looking to build on their current three-game win streak after rallying to beat t he Pacers by 101-93 in overtime on Monday. Goran Dragic led the team with 24 points, Hassan Whiteside had 19 points, 18 rebounds and six blocks while Dwyane Wade added 16 points as the Heat dominated the rebounding battle by 66-45 to rally back from an early double digit deficit and win in overtime. Chris Bosh missed the game with a clot in his left calf and no remains without a timetable for his return to the court.
In ATS trends, the Warriors are 1-4 ATS in their last five games overall and 5-2 ATS in their last seven games against a team with a winning record, while the Heat are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games overall and 0-5 ATS in their last five games against a team above .600.
Head to head, the Warriors are 5-2-2 ATS in the last nine meetings overall and 6-0-1 ATS in the last seven meetings in Miami.
The Heat showed plenty of fight in their overtime win on Monday, but the last time they played the Warriors, they lost by 111-103 back on Jan 11 and I'm expecting a similar result. especially with the Heat playing without Bosh.
