Current Records: Washington 10-4; Miami 10-5

What to Know

The Miami Heat and the Washington Wizards will face off at 7:30 p.m. ET Nov. 18 at FTX Arena without much rest after finishing up games yesterday. Miami should still be riding high after a win, while Washington will be looking to right the ship.

The Heat strolled past the New Orleans Pelicans with points to spare on Wednesday, taking the matchup 113-98. The victory came about thanks to a strong surge after the first quarter to overcome a 34-21 deficit. Miami’s small forward Jimmy Butler did his thing and posted a triple-double on 31 points, ten assists, and ten rebounds. That’s Jimmy G Buckets’ first triple-double of the season.

Meanwhile, Washington came up short against the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday, falling 97-87. Power forward Kyle Kuzma wasn’t much of a difference maker for Washington; Kuzma played for 30 minutes but put up just five points on 2-for-12 shooting.

The Heat are the favorite in this one, with an expected 7.5-point margin of victory. They are currently four-for-four against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.

Miami’s win brought them up to 10-5 while the Wizards’ defeat pulled them down to 10-4. A pair of defensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Miami have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 42.70%, which places them fourth in the league. But Washington is even better: they have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 42.50%, which places them second in the league. We’ll see if that edge gives Washington a route to victory.
