Through 3 Quarters

The Washington Wizards typically have all the answers at home, but the Miami Heat are posing a tough problem. The Heat currently hold a 75-71 lead.

Miami has been riding high on the performance of small forward Jimmy Butler, who has 20 points in addition to five rebounds. One thing to keep an eye out for is Bam Adebayo’s foul situation as he currently sits at four.

Washington has enjoyed the tag-team combination of shooting guard Bradley Beal and center Montrezl Harrell. The former has 21 points and six assists, while the latter has 13 points along with seven boards.

Washington hasn’t lost 71% of the games in which they were down heading into the final period this season, so a win here would be refreshing.

What to Know

The Miami Heat have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. Miami and the Washington Wizards will face off in a Southeast Division battle at 7 p.m. ET Saturday at Capital One Arena. The Heat will be strutting in after a win while Washington will be stumbling in from a defeat.

Miami is hoping for another victory. They took down Washington 112-97 on Thursday. Small forward Jimmy Butler continued his habit of dropping crazy stat lines, picking up 32 points and five assists.

Barring any buzzer beaters, Miami is expected to win a tight contest. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a five-game streak of ATS wins.

The Heat are now 11-5 while the Wizards sit at 10-5. Two defensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Miami have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 43%, which places them third in the league. Washington is completely their equal: they also come into the matchup with 43% field goal percentage.
