NBA Wednesday Night’s On The Hardwood: Golden State Warriors Vs. Miami Heat

Record Setters, History Makers

Through only 55 games this season the Golden State Warriors have reached 50 wins – faster than any team in NBA. The Warriors continually strengthen their case as the greatest team in NBA history, needing to go 23-4 over the rest of the season to set the best record in league history. The Warriors have dominated opponents this season, and with a 24-0 mark at home and 17 more games left to play at home – of their 27 remaining – there is a good chance history will be made come April.

A Career in Jeopardy?

For the second straight season Miami Heat All-Star Chris Bosh has been diagnosed with a blood clot. Last year after the clot diagnosis, Bosh was sidelined for the remainder of the season and the Miami Heat fell out of the playoff race. Currently the Heat sit in fourth in the East, but without Bosh there is a strong chance the Heat will slide down the Eastern Conference standings –but likely remain in the playoff picture. What is much worse than the prospects for the rest of the Heat’s season is that of Bosh’s career. While many are optimistic for Bosh to be back this year, there is a chance that the clots could continue to reoccur and Bosh may need to call it quits prematurely. Bosh is a sure-fire Hall of Famer, but it would be a shame if he ended his career now.     

Golden State Warriors vs. Miami Heat

The Warriors continue their 7 game road trip with a stop in South Beach to play the Miami Heat. Over their last 10 meetings, the Warriors hold a 6-4 (5-4-1 against the spread) over the Heat. The Warriors come into this game as 8.5 point favourites, a sizeable spread for a road team to have over a playoff calibre opponent. The Heat are somewhat well equipped to play the Heat, with their strong back court combination of Dwayne Wade and Goran Dragic. With the injury to Bosh, there is little chance of a straight upset tonight, but with the Warriors being on the road since the All-Star break ended, it is hard to see the Warriors beating the Heat by the 8.5. Take the Heat on Wednesday night.
