GAME PREVIEW: Heat hope to end skid, host Warriors

New, comments

Could a big win against the Warriors turn their season around?

NBA: Miami Heat at Golden State Warriors Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Heat (26-33) are still looking for the first win since the All-Star break as they host the back-to-back defending champion Golden State Warriors (43-17). Miami played the Warriors tough just before the AS break, but lost by 2 in Oakland. And after playing the worst team in the West, and losing, the Heat will play the best.

What To Watch For

Dwyane Wade Jersey Swap
Hey, at this point, this is what I am most intrigued by. He’s already given it to Steph...my guess is Kevin Durant gets the jersey. What do you think?
