Miami Heat 's Latest Performance :
The Heat will begin their four-game road trip against the Bucks. They are 10-12 when playing on the road this season. The Heat are currently on a two-game winning streak as they were able to take down the Grizzlies at home. Leading all scorers for the Heat was Justice Winslow, he finished the game with 26 points on the night shooting 10-of-16 from the floor while grabbing seven boards. The Heat gave Winslow the freedom to handle the ball and it is paying off big time. He’s also shot the ball much better lately at 50.8 FG% over his last five outings, averaging 15.4 points. Wade came through in the clutch and had a block to secure the win although this is his last season it great to see that he still gives it his all on the court. Richardson handed out a career-high nine assists and chipping 14 points on the night. Playing against the Bucks James Johnson will have to do his best to contain Giannis from going off offensively.
Milwaukee Bucks 's Latest Performance :
The Bucks got their superstar back and he did not disappoint he scored a game-high 33 points, six boards, four assists, three steals on 9-for-17 from the field. It is safe to say that the Bucks are a much better team with him on the floor as he showed us again why he is the front runner to win MVP this season. Eric Bledsoe played through left hamstring soreness on Sunday, posting 24 points, 10 assists, two rebounds, two steals, two 3-pointers and one block in 26 minutes. He is playing well alongside the Greekfreak. Brook Lopez will look to bounce back against the Heat after scoring only nine points on the night. He will be going up against Whiteside in his next game. The Bucks shouldn’t have a problem playing the Heat at home they are 19-4 this season as long as Giannis is in the game the Bucks will always to be favorite to win. He is practically unguardable in the open court.

Against The Spread Selection: Milwaukee Bucks
My reason for the pick :
The Bucks will pick up their second win in a row taking down the Heat at home. I expect Giannis to have another huge scoring outburst. Giannis just keeps getting better and better but the thing is this is still in the regular season and the Bucks are expected to win these games. The challenge for Giannis is that can he replicate these regular season performances when the playoffs come around that still remains to be seen. For the Heat, it will be tough for anyone on the team to really stop him as they will drop to 21-21 on the season.
