Philadelphia 76ers 's Latest Performance :
The Sixers are the talk of the town as they were able to land Jimmy Butler by only giving up Covington and Saric he is not starting in this game but he is expected to start against the Magic. The Sixers are coming off an overtime loss against the Grizzlies. The Sixers have now played two straight overtime games they must do a better job of protecting the lead. Ben Simmons scored 18 points (9-of-16 FGs) with 14 rebounds, five assists, one block. He posted another double-double, which is his eleventh overall and fourth in his last five games. Redick started the game and ended up with 20 points. Redick should be a starter going forward, with the Sixers needing his shooting alongside Butler. Markelle Fultz added 14 points, while reserves T.J. McConnell (16 points) and Furkan Korkmaz (career-high 14) were the other double-digit scorers. The Sixers were plagued by 23 turnovers and made just 2 of 8 shots in the overtime. The Sixers were shorthanded against the Grizzlies they had only nine available players for the game at the FedEx Forum. Going up against the Heat should be an interesting matchup because they were one of the teams that were supposed to land Butler.
Miami Heat 's Latest Performance :
The Heat couldn’t overcome the struggling Wizards it was their fifth loss in seven games. Heat fell to 3-4 at home, during what was supposed to be a favorable portion of the schedule. Josh Richardson led the Heat with 24 points, with center Hassan Whiteside adding a 15-point, 14-rebound double-double. Goran Dragic returned on Saturday with no points, two rebounds, three assists, one steal and three turnovers in 21 minutes he was 0-for-7 in from the floor as he will look to have a better outing against the Sixers. Rodney McGruder scored a career-high 22 points he has been consistent all season long and has been a pleasant surprise for the Heat this season. Playing against the Sixers is going to be an interesting one because for months now Miami was involved in the Butler sweepstakes but the Heat didn’t want to part ways with Richardson and now Bulter is on the Sixers although he won’t be starting the game he will be the talk of the game.

Against The Spread Selection: Philadelphia 76ers
My reason for the pick :
The Sixers should be able to come out with the win in this game against the Heat as they have a better team on paper. Ben Simmons should get to his spots on the floor with ease because Dragic will still be struggling from his knee injury. The East has just become a lot stronger with the acquisition of Butler and anyone who has been trusting the process from the very start will finally get to see results. The Sixers to steal one on the road against the Heat.
