However, Miami has its own recent struggles to worry about. Although they still have the best record in the Eastern Conference, the Heat (23-10) have won only three of their last seven, with two victories coming in overtime and the other against league-worst Washington. Miami has been exposed on the boards, with a minus-9.2 rebounding margin in its last five games after getting outrebounded by 19 in an 87-77 loss at Indiana on Tuesday night. However, rebounding has also not been the Blazers' strong point, and the two teams will boast high octane offenses to outscore one another. When it comes down to offense, very few teams can match up with the Heat, with James and revitalized Wade leading the charge. MIA 107 - POR 99
