Thunder vs. Heat Live TV: ABC
The Heat are one of the best teams in the NBA at 18-6 this year, but it almost feels like they have underachieved just a bit, with a few uncharacteristic losses to teams that they should have put away relatively easily. The two defeats to the New York Knicks are definitely concerning as well at this point. The Thunder will have had four day off in a row to get ready for this one after losing to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Thursday. They were a bit shorthanded in that game, as G Russell Westbrook was banged up but playing, while G Kevin Martin, the key cog off of the bench missed out with a quadriceps injury. We expect to see Martin back on the floor in this one, and that will make a huge difference between winning and losing for Oklahoma City. When this team is complete and full, it might be the best team in basketball, especially with the way that F Serge Ibaka is playing on both sides of the court, along with two of the NBA’s best pure scorers in F Kevin Durant and G Russell Westbrook. It won’t be a total measure of revenge, but at least it will be sweet for Oklahoma City to come to South Beach and pull the minor upset of the Heat.
