by Chad Matthews - 4/4/2014
The Minnesota Timberwolves head to South Beach tonight to take on the red-hot Miami Heat. The Heat are coming off an easy win against Milwaukee at home on Wednesday night as they smashed the Bucks 96-77. LeBron James led the way Wednesday, scoring 17 points as well as handing out 8 assists. Chris Bosh had 15 points, while Mario Chalmers put up 14.
The Timberwolves are coming off a nice win as well at home against the Memphis Grizzlies. Kevin Love continues to have an MVP-type season as he managed a triple-double of 24 points, 16 rebounds and 10 assists that powered the Wolves to a 102-88 win over the Grizzlies. The Timberwolves, who sit 10th in the playoff picture in the West, have no chance at this point to make the postseason. They have had many key injuries throughout the season and many issues in the front office as well that plagued them throughout their 2013-14 campaign. The Heat are 30-6 this season at home, while the Timberwolves have struggled on the road, posting a 15-22 road record this year.

This seems to always be the time of the year where the Heat are kind to bettors as they push for playoff positioning. The Heat sit in a race with the Indiana Pacers in the East right now and know each game from here on is key to them and carries much importance if they want to secure home-court advantage throughout the playoffs. The Timberwolves only role in the season at this point is to play the spoiler role, but I don't see that happening here tonight as Miami is playing the better basketball at this point and have a lot more to play for. Take the Heat and the points here tonight.
