NBA | Detroit 116 @ Miami 96 | 12/07 | 12:30 AM UTC
ANALYSIS: The Heat just played Monday in what turned out to be an embarrassing loss to a Grizzlies team that was without Ja Morant, Jaren Jackson Jr., Desmond Bane and John Konchar. The Heat are 1-3 against the spread in the second game of a back-to-back set, partially because they tend to rest players. Jimmy Butler recently missed seven games with a knee injury, so he could sit this one out. So could Tyler Herro, who has also missed time with injuries. The Heat are 4-5 in games in which Butler has missed this season and none of their four wins came by more than eight points. I’m jumping on this early because the line could move significantly if the Heat start to rule out players.
