The Golden State Warriors will welcome the Miami Heat to Chase Center on Wednesday night matchup. The game will take place on 10:00 PM EST and is expected to be a thrilling contest. Both sides are expected to be contenders for the 2021 NBA Championship.
However, the two sides haven’t been in their best form this season. The Dubs hold the eighth seed in the West with a record of 15-13 while the Heat won just 11 of their 27 fixtures this season. Additionally, fans will witness the reunion of Steph Curry and Andre Iguodala.
These are two guys who spent six seasons together with the Warriors. But who will be victorious in this inter-conference matchup?
The Dubs are finally getting back to redeem themselves after a bumpy start to the season. Their veterans, Steph Curry and Draymond Green, are leading the team from the front. Hopefully, their form continues as they host the Miami Heat on Wednesday night.
As far as their injury report is concerned, James Wiseman, Klay Thompson, Kevon Looney, and Marquese Chriss will remain out of the lineup. Keeping that in mind, the expected lineup for the team is Steph Curry (PG), Kelly Oubre Jr. (SG), Juan Toscano-Anderson (SF), Andrew Wiggins (PF), and Draymond Green (C).
Though they made a trip to the 2020 NBA Finals, the Heat have not been able to replicate the same form this season. Initially, their games were ruined due to numerous players being sidelined courtesy of the COVID-19 protocols.
However, they could still save their season in the second half of the season. According to their recent injury report, Goran Dragic will be out of action vs the Warriors. Additionally, Gabe Vincent is listed as day to day. So the predicted lineup for the team is Kendrick Nunn (PG), Duncan Robinson (SG), Jimmy Butler (SF), Kelly Olynyk (PF), and Bam Adebayo (C).
Keeping the injuries and current form in mind, the Golden State Warriors should be able to register a victory over the Miami Heat.
