The Heat have won 2 straight and are 7-3 in their last 10 games and the Clippers are coming off a loss and are 6-4 in their last 10 games.

The Clippers lost to Miami earlier this season and while they played good D on LeBron James holding him to 18 points Dwyane Wade came up big going for 29 points.

The Clippers rank 19th in the league in rebounds per game and they were dominated on the boards in their loss to the Nuggets being out-rebounded by 15. Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan have to hit the glass tonight and make sure that does not happen again.

The big match up in this game is the Clippers and their 2nd ranked offense facing the Heat and their 8th ranked defense.

No secret the Clippers need to keep the Big 3 of James, Wade, and Chris Bosh from having big games. It is key that they do not allow them to shoot a high FG% and make them take tough shots.
Chris Paul will be returning soon from his shoulder injury, but he will not play tonight.

The Heat must play solid perimeter D against he sharpshooters of Jamal Crawford and J.J Reddick, who are each averaging over 15 ppg and shooting over 36% from beyond the 3-point arc.

The Heat are 2nd in the Eastern Conference 3.5 games back of the Pacers and the Clippers are in the 4th spot in the West 5.5 games back of the Thunder.
