Miami Heat
NBA Fantasy Basketball

The Miami Heat had started to look like a top-five Eastern Conference side once again, but a recent slump has now seen them suffer four defeats on the trot. The Heat are in desperate need of reliable shooters who can take some pressure off the likes of Jimmy Butler and Adebayo.

But if Butler and Adebayo don’t show up, it will be hard to beat a high-scoring Blazers team.

Note: Derrick Jones Jr. of Portland will face Miami, the team that he’s played on for the past three seasons.
