Game Preview: Heat host Warriors looking for 4th straight win

New, comments

The Miami Heat are in the midst of a season-long win streak and hope to make it 4 in a row at home when they play the Warriors.

The Miami Heat are just now starting to find a groove. Even with all the injuries they are facing -- Justise Winslow, Josh McRoberts, Josh Richardson and Chris Bosh are all OUT vs the Warriors, and Tyler Johnson is day-to-day, the Heat are figuring out how to win.

But now, they will host the league-best Golden State Warriors who are 38-6. The Warriors got a win on Sunday afternoon in Orlando against the Magic.

Miami played the Warriors decently in Oakland a week ago, but came up short. Even in defeat, it had Warriors' coach Steve Kerr complimenting the team on how hard they play, especially on defense. Now, the Heat will look to make a huge upset against the Warriors.

It won't be easy for Miami, nothing is. In fact, the Heat will have to play great and consistent basketball to get a win here. They could really benefit from Tyler Johnson playing, but that is up in the air right now. Tune in and watch and make sure you come back and join us on our GameThread to chat about it.
