A winning streak will be on the line for the Miami Heat on Monday when they battle the Brooklyn Nets at American Airlines Arena.

ABOUT THE NETS (9-38): Brooklyn is last in the NBA in scoring defense, surrendering an average of 115.2 points, and let the Timberwolves shoot 51.1 percent from the field in a 129-109 loss at Minnesota on Saturday. “I felt they dominated us,” Nets coach Kenny Atkinson told reporters. “We couldn’t stop them. Physically, I thought they overwhelmed us. … I just don’t think our defense was acceptable. I didn’t think we contested shots. Our physicality was below average.” The positive from the loss was the continued strong play of center Brook Lopez, who led the team with 25 points on 10-of-15 shooting after taking the previous game off to rest.

ABOUT THE HEAT (18-30): Miami still has a long way to climb to reach one of the top eight spots in the East but is embracing that as a goal. “We’ve been thinking about playoffs from the beginning, but we’re taking it one game at a time,” shooting guard Wayne Ellington told reporters. “Where we are right now, we’re just trying to get better every day. We don’t want to push the envelope or jump the gun or anything like that. We’re just taking it one game at a time. We’re just trying to get better and better.” Ellington contributed 19 points and went 5-of-7 from 3-point range in Saturday’s win over the Pistons – the sixth time during the streak that he made multiple 3-pointers.

Bovada Sportsbook currently has the Heat listed as -8½-point favorites versus the Nets, while the game’s total is sitting at 217½ according to GTBETS.

Miami won its last outing, a 116-103 result against the Pistons on January 28. The Heat covered in that game as a +3-point underdog, while the 219 combined points took the game OVER the total.

In their last action, Brooklyn was a 129-109 loser on the road against the Timberwolves. They failed to cover the +10.5-point spread as underdogs, while the combined score (238) was profitable news for OVER bettors.

The Miami Heat are all of a sudden the hottest team in the NBA and are streaking up the standings in the Eastern Conference. The Heat will try to push their season-best winning streak to eight straight when they host the NBA-worst Brooklyn Nets on Monday.

Miami was just 11-30 and looking every bit a lottery team until ripping off the winning streak, which includes triumph over Houston, Golden State and Chicago. “Everybody is gunning to end the streak,” Heat guard Dion Waiters told reporters after a 116-103 triumph over Detroit on Saturday. “We take it one game at a time. We don’t really look ahead and we just try to get better every day. Continue to keep working and get better as a team. When we go out there, we are not looking to keep a streak going. We are just looking to win the basketball game.” The closest the Heat came to falling during the streak might have been at Brooklyn, where they escaped with a 109-106 win on Wednesday. The Nets are losers of five straight and 16 of their last 17.
