The Heat are coming off a 113-95 win over the Pacers on Saturday. Hassan Whiteside had 22 points and 17 rebounds for his 37th double-double, Dion Waiters added 22 points, Goran Dragic scored 21 points and James Johnson had 15 off the bench. Indy led 23-18 after the first quarter and by as many as 11 points in the second, but the Heat rallied and pulled within 54-53 at halftime. The scales tipped in favor of the Heat in the third period when Pacers forward Paul George was ejected after his second technical foul with 8:49 remaining. George had 10 points and one rebound in 19 minutes. Miami outscored Indiana 42-22 in the final 16 minutes of the game. The Heat have won the last three straight games and eight of the last 10. Additionally, Miami has made 43 three-point shots over the past three games; the most for any three-game period in the history of the team. Similarly, the Heat scored 100 points for the 16th straight game, the best such streak in franchise history. Miami has moved within 1½ games of the Pistons for the 8th place in the Eastern Conference. For fans who enjoy betting on NBA games, the Heat are 9-2-1 against the basketball gambling spread in the last 12 games versus a team with a losing record, 7-1 ATS in the last eight road games, and 18-7-1 ATS in the last 26 games.
The Mavs are coming off a 96-83 win over the Pelicans. Dirk Nowitzki had 18 points and nine rebounds and Harrison Barnes added 19 points. Nerlens Noel – whom Dallas acquired from the Sixers in exchange for Justin Anderson, Andrew Bogut and a 2017 protected first-round pick – had nine points and 10 rebounds off the bench. Dallas scored 22 points off of 20 Pelicans’ TOs. The Mavericks snapped a three-game losing streak but have lost five of the last eight. Seth Curry scored 13 points – 10 in the fourth quarter – including three-point shot with 4:49 left which gave the Mavs an 84-72 lead. Curry has averaged more than 15 points per game since joining the starting lineup on January 12. However, Dallas fans who like betting on NBA games expect head coach Rick Carlisle to gradually ease Noel into the starting center position which would potentially render Curry a reserve again. The Mavs are 7-0 against the basketball gambling spread in the last seven home games against a team with a losing road record, 10-1 ATS in their last 11 home games and 14-6 ATS in their last 20 games. Miami has been very reliable as of late while Dallas has been hit-and-miss (more miss than hit, in fact). In addition to that, the Heat have covered in seven of the last eight road games.
