Pre-buzz surrounding the game

Oklahoma City is coming off a 128-101 loss to the Phoenix Suns, who have been having a sizzling run so far. However, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Danilo Gallinari and Steven Adams all did not play in that matchup so don't discount the Thunder yet. 

Meanwhile, Miami Heat has been having a pretty solid run. In their last game, they beat the Indiana Pacers 114-92. The team displayed some impressive coordination and appears to work like a well-oiled machine, making them a solid threat.

Thunder is currently the fifth seed in the Western Conference while Miami is fourth in the Eastern Conference. Both teams will be looking to solidify their positions so expect an evenly fought match.

With only a 0.5 game lead over Utah Jazz, Thunder will need a win to ensure they don't slip to the seventh seed. Miami, however, are doing pretty well for themselves, though they will be looking to score another win to safeguard themselves.

Who will win?

It's always hard to answer that question but this time the game really could go either way. Thunder will have to pull up their socks after their last showing but they would be quite motivated to get a win after their recent loss. But if Miami displays the same kind of teamwork they had against the Pacers, the game may very well go to Heat. We're going to be favoring Miami Heat in this game but honestly, both teams are evenly matched and it really is anyone's game.
