GAME PREVIEW: Heat return home, host Clippers

New, comments
NBA: Miami Heat at Los Angeles Clippers Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Heat (22-23) return home after a disappointing 4-game road trip that included three losses. Again under .500, the Heat are looking to get back on track when they host the L.A. Clippers (25-22). The Heat already beat the Clippers once this season, and will need a strong effort to do so again.

What To Watch For

Hassan’s Advantage
The Clippers really have no one that can challenge Hassan Whiteside from a positioning or reach standpoint. Will the Heat use him wisely and take advantage? If the Heat can control the paint, they have a great shot at winning. The Clippers have great perimeter defenders, so nothing easy will come from outside.
