The Heat didn't have too much room to spare in their contest with the Atlanta Hawks on Friday, but they still walked away with a 124-118 victory. It was another big night for Miami's small forward Jimmy Butler, who posted a double-double on 23 points and 10 dimes.
Bam Adebayo (thumb) remains out at least one more game, but Omer Yurtseven has been productive in his spot. The big man has been churning out double-doubles on a consistent basis and he scored 17 points and grabbed 11 boards in Friday's win. Miami has won four straight games straight-up and has covered in five straight.
Meanwhile the Sixers wrapped up a 111-99 win at home against the Celtics on Friday. Sixers' center Joel Embiid dropped a double-double on 25 points and 13 boards in addition to six assists. It was the eighth win in nine games for Philadelphia.
Danny Green (hip) and Matisse Thybulle (shoulder) remain day-to-day, while Shake Milton (back) is out indefinitely. Embiid is healthy, but it's always good to monitor his status during back-to-backs. Tobias Harris (18.3 ppg), Tyrese Maxey (16.8 ppg) and Seth Curry (16.2 ppg) have been the other big producers on offense.
The model is leaning over on the total, and it's also generated a point-spread pick that is hitting in over 50 percent of simulations. You can only see the pick at SportsLine.
