Philadelphia 76ers vs. Miami Heat
7:30 pm et 01/21 76ers vs Heat
The Miami Heat and Philadelphia 76ers collide for the first time since meeting in the opening round of last season’s playoffs.
After dropping a season high three straight games, the Heat are back on track after back to back impressive wins against San Antonio and the Los Angeles Lakers to improve to 10-4 on the season. Still without Dwayne Wade, Lebron James fought off a cold to carry the load against the Lakers on Thursday night, scoring 31 points to go along with eight rebounds and eight assists to guide the Heat to a comfortable 98-87 win. Miami has now improved to 5-0 without Wade, whose status for tonight’s game is still uncertain.
The 76ers continued their impressive start to the season by coming from behind to defeat the visiting Atlanta Hawks 90-76 on Friday night as they now lead the Atlantic Division by a full five games. Coming off their first home loss of the season against Denver on Wednesday night, Philly trailed by eight at half time against the Hawks, but a 14-0 run in the third quarter put them ahead for good, and they never looked back. Thaddeus Young scored a game high 20 points off the bench, while Jrue Holiday added 16 points and 11 assists for a 76ers that improved to 7-1 at home.
The Heat are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 home games vs. a team with a winning road record, but just 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600. The 76ers on the other hand are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record, 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 road games and 13-3-1 ATS in their last 17 games overall.
