Top Performers

Jimmy Butler and Tyler Herro have been strong to open up this season. Butler has averaged 25.3 points per game and Herro is averaging 23.3 points and 7 rebounds per game. Bam Adebayo has averaged 17.7 points and 14 rebounds per game. To close out the lineup, Duncan Robinson is averaging 10.7 points per game.

Kevin Durant has been great for the Nets to start out this season. Durant is averaging 31 points and 9.8 rebounds per game. James Harden has averaged 17.3 points and 8.3 assists per game. Patty Mills is averaging 14.5 points, while LaMarcus Aldridge has averaged 11 points per game. Joe Harris is averaging 10.3 points per game to round out this lineup.

These two teams have a nice spread of scoring to open up this season. Harden will look to step up though to give Durant some extra help with Kyrie Irving out. If Butler and Herro can go off again, it could be enough for another win. I expect both teams to try and set up on defense early in this matchup.

Pick Overview

The Heat and Nets will look for a big win in this matchup on Wednesday night. Miami has been stronger to open up this season, but I think that Brooklyn will win this game at home. I expect the Nets to step up on offense in this matchup. If Brooklyn can get momentum early, I like their chances to earn a big win to go above .500 for the first time this season.

BetOnline has the Nets listed as a -4 ½ against the spread in this one. This gives a slight edge to Brooklyn at home. I agree with this line as the Nets are at home and have the better lineup overall. I think that Brooklyn will come out hot in this one. As slight favorites on Wednesday night, I like the value on the Nets to win this one.
