Miami Heat Vs Houston Rockets Game Day Preview
The Miami Heat will face the Houston Rockets in a well-awaited matchup on Thursday night. This matchup will be the start to Miami’s 7-game road trip.
The Miami Heat are coming off three straight wins, their longest winning streak of the season.
After a shaky start due to injuries and a Covid-19 breakout, the Heat are back on track. Jimmy Butler is coming off terrific performances, with near triple doubles in each of the last 6 games. Butler is averaging 18.8 PPG, 6.9 RPG, and 6.8 APG this season.
Against the Rockets on Thursday night, there will be no Goran Dragic and Avery Bradley, two key bench players for the Heat.
The Houston Rockets seem to have gotten better ever since James Harden left. But that’s because the presence of Victor Oladipo has arrived. Oladipo is averaging 19.8 PPG, 4.7 APG, and 5.3 RPG this season.
Oladipo isn’t the only face of the Rockets. It’s also John Wall and Christian Wood, who are both in their first years with Houston. Wood has been one of the most underrated players this season, averaging 22.0 PPG, 10.2 RPG, and 1.3 APG. Wood is still out with an injury, and won’t play against Miami. John Wall, the longtime Washington Wizard, is averaging 19.2 PPG, 3.7 RPG, and 6.0 APG. Wall is also on the injury report, but is listed as probable.
