The Brooklyn Nets are going to get the benefit of the doubt because they’re at home with the flashy names, but they didn’t play much defense in their opener. The Miami Heat are also a grind it out club that plays hard whether the games count or not. It’s why the Heat have a lot of preseason and summer league success. The Heat compete whenever they take the court. I’ll always grab the points in these spots.
