The 76ers’ seven-game winning streak was snapped on Sunday in Washington. However, they’re a young team that continues to improve with every performance. Six of those seven wins were at home, though, and they’ll have to prove they can win on the road. They’ve dropped five of their last six away games, so it won’t be easy.

The Heat are 31-29 SU and snapped a three-game losing skid with a 115-89 rout of the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday. SG Tyler Johnson led the way with 23 points. He’ll need to continue producing at that level to help Miami get out of their rut. Overall, the Heat have lost eight of their last 10 games.

The Heat have won six of their last 10 meetings with the 76ers, who split those games against the spread. The 76ers won both meetings with the Heat this season, winning 103-97 on February 2 and 104-102 on February 14. Both games were played in Philadelphia, though.
