Miami Heat vs. Oklahoma City Thunder, special game to analyze a possible scenario in the playoffs. Two top five play to measure forces. That’s what most teams have been doing in the few games of the regular season. The Heat have the same number of losses and victories as the Thunder in the last six days.
Miami Heat: Until the end.
The Heat have won three of the last six games. The last victory was against the Indiana Pacers 114-92. The other two wins of the season were against the Celtics 112-106 and the Nuggets 125-105. The losses so far have been against the Raptors, Bucks and Suns. Notably, the losses were all against potential opponents in the playoffs. Except for the Suns who are still contesting a playoff spot.

The defense allows up to 109 points, 38.72 FG points and 13.03 three pointers. Earlier in the season the Heat beat the Thunder 115,108 in Oklahoma.
Jimmy Butler leads the Heat with 20.2 points per game, 13.2 FG points, 83.7% free throw shots. Dragic and Adebayo are scoring 16 points per game each. Kendrick Nunn is averaging 15.2, but he will not be available for this game.
Oklahoma City Thunder: Ready for the game.
The Thunder are taking it easy these final days of the regular season. 3-3 in past six games, two games remaining to close out the regular season. After this game against Miami, the team plays the Clippers. The most recent game was a 101-128 loss to the Phoenix Suns. The Thunder are in fifth place in the Western Conference with 43-27 overall.
The Thunder’s numbers are good this season. 110.4 points per game, 40.03 FG points, 79.8% free throw shots, 10.57 three pointers, 21.77 assists and 27.4 points per quarter. The defense allows up to 108.4 points per game, 40.87 FG points and 11.26 three pointers.
Tonight the Thunder probably won’t use any of the best players for more than two quarters to prevent injuries. In addition, there are several major players on the disabled list including Adams, Gallinari, Shai, and Schroder. All of them in the table of the best scorers per game of the team.
