Why Miami Will Win

If you want to make a winning bet on this game, here's why you might want to pick the Heat: For one thing, they are simply a better team than Cleveland. The Heat, even without Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, not to mention role players such as UdonisHaslem – who has also been benched in recent weeks – can still cobble together enough resources to win games.

The Heat beat Washington on the road on Wednesday night without four starters. Only LeBron James started for the defending NBA champions, and yet the Heat still had enough to get the job done, with guys such as Rashard Lewis and Ray Allen picking up the slack, not to mention Shane Battier and Norris Cole, who have all performed admirably over the past two weeks. It’s noticeable that Miami has lost so few games even when resting all of its most important players in various combinations and arrangements.

The guards in this game balance each other out, with Kyrie Irving returning to the Cleveland lineup and being a devastating scoring presence the Heat will have to deal with. However,there's a reason that a team with the Cavaliers' backcourt – talented as it is – will not make the playoffs, and that's because Cleveland has nobody who can defend or rebound at an elite level. When Anderson Varejao was lost for the remainder of the season a while back, Cleveland lost its one dependable defensive stalwart near the rim. The Heat will be able to get the kinds of shots they want in this contest, and there's little Cleveland is likely to be able to do about it.

Why Cleveland Will Win

WhenNFL betting students switch from the NFL draft for a few moments and cast a glance at the world of professional basketball, they might consider the Cavs for thisreason:Miami, now just a few days from beginning their title defense in the NBA playoffs, is going to devote a small amount of mental energy to this game.

The Heat must focus on getting healthy for the playoffs. LeBron James has taken care of business whenever he’s come to Cleveland in the years since his departure from the Cavaliers, but he can’t get wrapped up in this game. It’s just not that important in the larger picture. Cleveland took Miami into overtime in South Florida several weeks ago, and a month ago, it gained a 27-point lead on the Heat with just over seven minutes left in the third quarter of a game played in Ohio.

Miami came back to win that game, dealing the Cavs a wrenching blow. This game means so much more to Cleveland than it does to Miami, and that’s why the Cavaliers are going to win.

Who Will Win

The Cavaliers will fight the Heat to the wire in what feels like a close contest. Ultimately, the need for Miami to rest in advance of the playoffs is going to give Cleveland the ability to rise up and win.
