Now, on a back-to-back the Heat will face the LA Clippers on their first of two games in LA.

What To Watch For
The Heat will be short-handed in this one again, and so the likes of Derrick Jones Jr. will be needed. The Heat will also need a better showing from Dwyane Wade in order to get a win against a quality team on the road.
