Golden State Warriors vs. Miami Heat: Prediction (2024)

Golden State Warriors vs. Miami Heat: Prediction (2024)

The Golden State Warriors will take on the Miami Heat on Tuesday at the Kaseya Center. This will be the second meeting between the two teams, with the Heat winning the first one 114-102 in December. Jimmy Butler was not present in that game, so Tyler Herro stepped up and finished with 26 points and seven rebounds. Bam Adebayo contributed with 17 points and 11 rebounds, while Jaime Jaquez Jr. added 17 points, five rebounds and six assists. On the other hand, Stephen Curry had one of the worst nights with just 13 points, four rebounds, five assists and two steals. Miami will look to sweep the season series in the upcoming contest. 

 

Preview 

The Golden State Warriors are coming off two consecutive losses to the Indiana Pacers and the Minnesota Timberwolves. They are 2–4 in their last six games. The Houston Rockets are just 0.5 games behind them and are also on a nine-game winning streak. 

Meanwhile, the Heat have been a little inconsistent recently, mainly due to injuries. However, they are still a strong team and are currently in seventh place in the Eastern Conference standings with a 39-32 record. They are coming off a blowout win against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday. 

 

Starting lineup

The Warriors have only Trayce Jackson-Davis on the injury report. They will likely start with Stephen Curry, Brandin Podziemski, Jonathan Kuminga, Andrew Wiggins and Draymond Green. 

The Heat have three players listed as out and three listed as questionable. Miami will most likely start with Terry Rozier, Patty Mills, Nikola Jovic, Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo. 

 

Betting tips 

Steph Curry has an over/under of 25.5 points for the upcoming game, which is lower than his season average. “Baby-Faced Assassin” has scored at least 26 points three times in his last five games. Bet on him to go over, since he will be in full enthusiasm with the season on line. 

Jimmy Butler is favored to go over 22.5 points. You can take the risk and bet on him to go over in the game against Golden State.
