The Miami Heat are hoping to avoid the regular season sweep against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday night as the Heat host the Thunder at home.
The Miami Heat rebounded from their drubbing by the Boston Celtics with a 99-93 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday evening and will be looking to turn it into a winning streak as they host the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday night. The Heat have gone .500 in their last six games and are hoping to put together a long winning streak as the playoffs wind down, especially if they can get one started against a team the caliber of the Thunder.
The Thunder on the other hand have the second best record in the NBA and are coming off a surprising loss to the Memphis Grizzlies. The Thunder are going for the season sweep of the Magic, having beaten Miami by nearly 20 points in their previous matchup. In that game, Kevin Durant put down 28 points and was nearly perfect from the three-point line.
Game Time: 8:00 PM ET, April 4, 2012
Location: AmericanAirlines Arena, Miami, FL
