NBA Team Preview - Miami Heat

Miami is another team that had a quiet, boring offseason. They lost PJ Tucker to Philly, which may be a tough blow to the rotation. Someone else will need to step up and fill those minutes. I'm not sure who that might be, if I'm being honest. However, I still like this team to go far in the Eastern Conference playoffs.

2021-22 Record: 53 - 29

2022-23 NBA Win Total Odds: 48.5 (DraftKings)

2022-23 NBA Championship Odds: +2000 (DraftKings)

The loss of PJ Tucker, and aging core of Jimmy Butler and Kyle Lowry, and more pressure on Bam Adebayo to put this team on his shoulders are all reasons to think this Miami Heat team will take a step backwards this season. It may depend on the play of Victor Oladipo to help carry some of the load. Looking forward to finding out.

My Predictions:

Under 48.5 Wins. I think they'll try to force a trade at the deadline to improve the roster that will ultimately end up being too-little too-late.
