Miami @ Washington

Current Records: Miami 11-5; Washington 10-5

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.
