Heat vs Nuggets Preview

Erik Spoelstra made strategic adjustments on defense to help Miami limit Nuggets guard Jamal Murray to just 18 points in Game 2. Now with the series shifting back to South Beach, now the question will be how do the Nuggets respond. What adjustments will they make?

Can the Heat take control of the series?

Hustle and heart can be hard to measure in the world of NBA betting, yet that intangible was key in helping the Miami Heat level their series with Denver Nuggets at 1-1 heading into Game 3.

Miami won Game 2 against Denver 111-108 thanks to head coach Erik Spoelstra's masterful game-to-game adjustment skills and hustle plays that ultimately proved decisive. Miami outworked Denver after they were bullied in Game 1. At the same time, Erik Spoelstra showed why he is considered among the premier game-to-game adjustors in NBA coaching - his Kung Fu enabled Miami's comeback victory!
Erik Spoelstra's decision to match Denver's size by starting 6-foot-8 Kevin Love instead of 6-foot-5 Celeb Martin freed Miami's top on-ball defender Jimmy Butler up for greater on-court pressure against Denver point guard Jamal Murray. It worked and now the question will be how do the Nuggets adjust?

Will the Nuggets bounce back?

Miami pretty much conceded points to Nikola Jokic in Game 2, with the two-time MVP scoring 41 points but recording only four assists. That didn’t allow Murray and the Nuggets’ other complementary pieces to get their motors going off Jokic’s pristine passes.
With Butler in tow, the Heat hedged harder on perimeter screens and ate up much of the space Murray uncovered in the opening game of the series. After scoring 26 points on 11-for-22 shooting in Game 1, the Canadian kid mustered only 18 points on 7-for-15 success and played well below his scoring prop total of 26.5 points Sunday night.
Murray and the Nuggets bench are the key to game three and really the series overall.
This series after game one looked like a one-sided blowout, thats no longer the case as the Heat heart and coaching will make this a difficult series for Denver.

Heat vs Nuggets Head-to-Head this season

The Nuggets won both meetings between these teams this season. Both games were close. Bow after two finals games the teams have split all six games this season.

Betting on the game! Nuggets -2.5

This is a huge game for the Nuggets who must figure out the Heat defense and they will have to do it on the road. I think Murray plays much better in game 3 and the Nuggets cover the spread in a single-digit game.

Over Under Heat vs Nuggets (214.5)

Take the over, I think Denver wins in the 115-109 range as the Heat will play well and the Nuggets will have to rise up and match them.
