Los Angeles Clippers vs Miami Heat NBA betting preview

The LA Clippers are coming off a loss in their last game and will head to South Beach this Friday to face a Miami Heat team that has won two in a row.

The Clippers had won four in a row before their last game where they lost 102-95 to the Atlanta Hawks. While the Hawks have the second-fewest wins in the league, LA were playing without starters Kawhi Leonard, Paul George and Patrick Beverly.

The Heat have won two in a row and four of their last five games. Their offense blew up in their last game in a 134-129 overtime home win over the Washington Wizards.

Clippers @ Heat NBA betting predictions

The Clippers will likely be down two starters in this game. While Leonard will be back on the court, it will not be enough. Miami are hot and have been sizzling at home all season. This non-conference game will be pretty close, but the Heat will win and cover for their 10th straight home win.
