Turn Up The Heat
 
After winning back-to-back NBA championships, the Miami Heat’s glory days have turned into gory ways this season.
 
Consider: in games versus losing teams last season Miami was 43-4 SU and 29-18 ATS.
 
This season they are 16-9 SU and 10-15 ATS against the same, including 0-8 ATS in games in which their losing opponent is off a win.
 
After dropping its 3rd game in a row for the first time this campaign in a loss at Washington (after partying with the President at the White House) this past Wednesday, it’s time for the Heat to turn it up if they wish to complete a three-peat.
 
Stat of the Week
 
The Sacramento Kings are 15-1 OVER away in games versus Southwest Division opponents (Friday at Memphis).
