Heat vs 76ers Prediction, Picks & Player Props (2/27)
The Miami Heat roll into Philadelphia tonight to take on the Philadelphia 76ers in an Eastern Conference showdown.
The Sixers lost a heartbreaker 2 nights ago at home against the top seeded Celtics in a back and forth affair that had a dramatic finish.
Tonight, they get a chance to get some revenge on another challenger in the East, Jimmy Butler and the Heat.
Miami is on a 4 game losing streak and need to start stringing together some wins, otherwise they might find themselves on the outside looking in come playoff time.
It should be a good one in the City of Brotherly love tonight, to watch and to bet on.

Both of these Eastern conference teams need to pick up a win tonight and it will be a battle.
The Heat are in a slump right now and need to pick themselves up and start stacking some wins to confirm their place in the playoffs.
They currently sit 7th, but have dropped 4 in a row and are only 2.5 games ahead of the 9th place Raptors.
Wins are becoming more and more valuable to Miami and a big win tonight in Philly would be huge for their record but more importantly, their mental state.
For the Sixers, they are comfortably 3rd in the East and have won 7 of their last 10 but after the last second loss to Boston 2 nights ago, Joel Embiid and the boys in Philly will be looking to get right back to winning.
In the first leg of a back-to-back, with these teams squaring off again on Wednesday in Miami, it will be a battle from start to finish.
Feeling the desperation and on the back of a big performance from Jimmy Butler (more on that below), I am going to ride with the Heat to cover.
I think the Sixers should get the job done at home but the Heat will do enough to stay within the 6 points and cover the spread.

As I mentioned above, Jimmy is going to have to carry the load tonight to keep the Heat around and I think he does.
He has scored 22+ points in 4 of his last 5 games and is coming off of a 28 point performance in a loss to the Hornets.
He also plays well against Philly, scoring 27 in their last matchup and has 22+ in 3 of his last 6 against Philly. 2 of those misses were 21 point performances.
Jimmy knows when to put the Heat on his back when they need him most and tonight will be another example of that.
