James Harden Under 28.5 Alt Points

With Embiid out, James Harden will be asked again to step back into the role as primary scorer (it really wasn’t that long ago).  He has excelled throughout his career becoming known as one of the game’s best scorers, but recently, his game has been more pass-first, shoot-second.  Harden can still hang 30 on a team, but tonight, they get the Miami Heat. 

We all saw what Miami did to Trae Young in the opening series, and the Heat will look to do the exact same to Harden. The Heat are just too good defensively in my mind to let Harden score over 25 points without the threat of Embiid. Young averaged 15.4 points, five rebounds and six assists in the series. He had a field goal percentage of 31.9 percent and shot 18.4 percent from three-point range.

With Embiid out, I expect the Heat to stay aggressive with Harden and limit easy scoring opportunities.

Max Strus 2+ 3-Pointers Made

Max Strus has been lights out from deep, and the DePaul product should continue to get his looks tonight.  Strus is averaging 7.5 three-point attempts over his last 10 games and has hit two or more three-pointers in nine of his last 10 games.  Volume, volume, volume.

Miami Heat Moneyline

Without Embiid, I don’t see the Sixers having the firepower to come into Miami, against a very good defensive team, and leave with a win.
