Reason for Miami Heat vs Washington Wizards NBA Basketball Picks

The Miami Heat, which has fought away from home throughout the season, will visit the Washington Wizards and the hot Bradley Beal on Sunday night.

Miami has won 17 more games than Washington this season, but the Heat are only 13-19 on the road. Sorcerers are between 15 and 15 years old at home.

In addition, Beal will have a 35-point night on Friday when the Wizards defeated the Atlanta Hawks 118-112. He made 13 of the 21 shots from the ground, including 7 of 10 in 3 points.

Beal has scored more than 25 points in 21 consecutive games, drawing LeBron James for the second longest streak in a player's Eastern Conference streak since 2000-01. Allen Iverson has accumulated more than 25 points in 27 consecutive games this season.

Beal, 26, double star in the NBA, is second in the NBA score (30.5) while leading the Wizards in assists (6.1).

Beal, who is 6 feet 3 inches, has 35.2 percent at 3 points, his field goal percentage is 0.458 and his effective field goal percentage, which gives additional weight to the success at 3 points, is 0.522. He has made at least six three-point shots in a game six times this season.

Wizards coach Scott Brooks also praised Beal's defense, calling him a "two-way player" and his constant training routine.

Atlanta Hawks coach Lloyd Pierce compared Beal to former NFL star Barry Sanders. On Sunday, the Heat will face Beal's challenge as he works to change his trajectory as a road team.

Miami lost four consecutive games as a visitor, including a 110-104 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans on Friday night.

Miami, who already played without goalkeeper Tyler Herro and center Meyers Leonard due to ankle injuries, lost forward Jae Crowder when he caused the elbow of pelican star Zion Williamson. Crowder has not returned and his status for Sunday is questionable.

The Heat is supported by a core group of Jimmy Butler, Goran Dragic, Kendrick Nunn and Duncan Robinson on the perimeter, and players Bam Adebayo and Kelly Olynyk.

Butler leads Miami scoring (20.5), assists (6.2) and interceptions (1.7). Dragic leads the reserves with 16.4 points and 5.1 assists. Nunn, who averages 15.5 points, was a revelation as a rookie not recruited. And Robinson has achieved more than 3 points in a single season, 233, than any player not selected in NBA history.

In the lead, Adebayo made his first star game this year due to his versatile talent, averaging 16.0 points, team rebound 10.5, 5.0 assists and 1.3 blocks. team up.

Olynyk, a reserve, averages 7.9 points and 4.5 rebounds while reaching 44% of his 3 points, ranking second for the team in the last category after 44.9% for Robinson.

Orlando Magic coach Steve Clifford told the Sun-Sentinel that Adebayo and Olynyk made the Heat harder to match than the other teams.

Beyond Beal, the next top scorer of the Wizards is Davis Bertans with 15.3 points per game. Thomas Bryant leads the team in rebounds (6.9), but point guard Ish Smith, who averages 4.8 assists, is absent due to a hamstring injury.
