Miami Heat vs Portland Trail Blazers Preview

The Phoenix Suns made history overnight with a seventh successive road win - the first time since January 2007, outlasting Miami 110-110 with big displays from Devin Booker (23 points on 10-19 shooting) and Deandre Ayton (17 pts, 16 rebs) among others. Head coach Monty Williams refused to get carried away post-game: 

"I don't want to make declarations about us, I just like winning games and with our defence against a really good team - a team with championship pedigree, that's been where we want to go."

Jae Crowder, who spent the second half of last season with Miami, scored 13 points and hailed their ability to engage as a collective unit mentally – now just two games within Western Conference leaders Utah.

As for Miami, their stuttering form continues while speculation surrounding Kyle Lowry, LaMarcus Aldridge and the future of second-year SG Tyler Herro appears top of the agenda ahead of Thursday's trade deadline. 

Miami Heat vs Portland Trail Blazers Betting Tips

ESPN's BPI is comfortably backing Miami (66.1%), a percentage that belies their inconsistent form and accurately portrays Portland in the role they know all too well, one of the underdogs. 

After Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum were reduced to just 10-of-36 shooting from the field, I'm expecting the backcourt duo to bounce back against a defence that remains patchy despite Bam Adebayo's best efforts. 

It's likely to be a more closely-contested affair than the aforementioned % suggests. However, I'm leaning towards Portland improving their 11-9 away record here, considering Miami has lost four straight and look likely to do business before the trade deadline impacting some starters' minutes.
