Miami Heat 's Latest Performance :
The Heat is coming off a lopsided win against the Suns. The Miami Heat are averaging 107.4 points on 43.2 percent shooting and allowing 10.94 points on 44.6 percent shooting. Josh Richardson is averaging 19.7 points and 3.3 assists while Goran Dragic is averaging 16.3 points. They now face a very tough challenge going up against the Clippers a team that is filled with weapons from the one spot all the way to the Center. The Heat will have to rely on team plays rather than relying on a single player if they want to beat the Clippers at home. The Clippers are a different team at home so the Heat players will have to bring their A-game if they want to spoil the Clippers return to Staples. The Heat are currently 10th in the Eastern Conference with a record of 10-14 and 4-5 on the road this season.
Los Angeles Clippers's Latest Performance :
The Clippers will return home where they are 9-1 on the season best in the NBA. They will look to bounce back after losing to the Grizzlies in their previous game. The Clippers are coming off an off shooting night they shot only 33.8 percent and had 17 turnovers. The 33.8 percent was their worst shooting night of the season. Harris will look to bounce back in a huge way after shooting 2-for-13 from the floor his worst shooting game as a Clipper. The only bright spot for Clippers was Marjanovic he shot 4-of-5 from the field and 11-of-12 from the line on Wednesday, scoring 19 points with eight rebounds. It’s all about matchups for Boban as he did a great job against Memphis while his teammates struggled. Expect a better game from Harrell as he only had eight points on the night he will be going up against Whiteside. Despite the loss, the Clippers are playing their best brand of Basketball to start the season they have it all depth, defense and a closer in Lou Williams. The Clippers will do well at home against the Heat.
