NBA: Miami Heat at Denver Nuggets Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Game Story:

The Heat is making noise and people are starting to notice. After a dominating win against the Rockets, Miami is officially on the radar of the media. As of today, the Heat is in the top 5 of most power rankings (at leas the ones that I’ve made) and have been praised for their elite defense. But it’s easy to get lost in the hype. The Heat face a real test with this Denver team, Jamal Murray, and Nikola Jokic will create trouble all around. It will be interesting to see how Bam Adebayo and the others respond to the challenge.

Though this game starts late for us on the East Coast, it’s definitely one to keep an eye one.

Probable Starters:


  • Jimmy Butler
  • Bam Adebayo
  • Kendrick Nunn
  • Meyers Leonard
  • Justise Winslow


  • Torrey Craig
  • Paul Millsap
  • Nikola Jokic
  • Gary Harris
  • Jamal Murray
