The Brooklyn Nets are 9-1-1 ATS on the season, and they've won 5 straight games against the Heat, so I wouldn't talk you off the edge if looking at the road dog. However, the Miami Heat are one of the hottest teams in the league with 6 straight wins, and they've done a lot of that on the road. At home, I'd assume things will be even better for the Heat. Adebayo has been a monster, Jaime Jaquez is balling as a rookie, Duncan is more than a 3-point shooter now… The Heat are looking good. The line is reasonable. Give me the Heat at home.
