Houston are coming off a 136-118 win last night in Washington that saw them hit a record 26 3-pointers, extending their winning streak to 5 games in the process. The Beard had a game high 35 points, including 6 3-pointers. Harden also added 3 rebounds, 9 assists with 2 steals.

Center Clint Capela had a strong game as well, going 9 for 13 from the field for a total of 20 points, and hauled down a game high 12 rebounds (4 offensive, 8 defensive). It took the Rockets 55 attempts to hit their record number of 3’s (47.3%) and hitting 76.2% of their free throws.

The Heat return home tonight after completing a six game road trip, one that saw them go 4-2. Their last game was Sunday night in New Orleans, a game they won 102-96 on the strength of 58 points from the bench. D Wade was very efficient in his 23 minutes, chipping in with 19 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists.

It’s been very close when these two play, with the Rockets holding a slight edge straight up at 6-4 in their last 10, with both the ATS and total records knotted up at 5-5. Looking at Houston’s recent record ATS, they are 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5, while Miami is 5-1 ATS in their last 6.

As well, Miami is 7-2 SU in their last 9 against Houston at home and 4-2 ATS in their last 6 against the Rockets.

This will be a great start to the double-header tonight, and I expect Miami to bring their A-game, having had 4 days of rest and finally get home after a long road trip.

NBA Free Pick: Miami +3.5
