The Warriors should be an interesting challenge for the Heat. The last time these teams met, Golden State won in overtime.
The Miami Heat will try for a third consecutive victory when they host the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday night. Miami has been one of the NBA's toughest teams at home this season (10-1). But the Warriors, who are in the middle of a seven-game road stretch, have won the first four games of the trip. Both teams are 8-2 in their last ten contests.
The Heat (14-5) average 103.6 points per game, which is tops in the Eastern Conference. The offense has been especially potent at home, where Miami has scored 108.6 points per game. LeBron James leads the team in most offensive categories, and Dwyane Wade is shooting a career-high 50.6 percent from the field.
The Warriors (14-7) are one of the hottest teams in the NBA, having won seven of their last eight games. Their recent success is due, in large part, to improved road play, where the Warriors are 8-4 so far. Only the San Antonio Spurs have more victories away from home. Stephen Curry has put up 20 or more points in eight straight games, and David Lee leads the team with 11.2 rebounds per game.
