With an under .500 record the Heat hold the seventh seed in the Eastern conference holding a 1 ½ game lead over ninth seeded Charlotte Hornets. Another sad injury story here as Chris Bosh was diagnosed with blood clots in his lung and he will miss the remainder of the season. Miami still has the talent to make the playoffs as they traded for point guard Goran Dragic. Center Hassan Whiteside has been a surprise for the Heat as he is averaging 10 points and nine rebounds per game.

The late night games begins at 10:30PM Eastern Time over ESPN as the Portland Trailblazers will host the Oklahoma City Thunder. Portland has been strong defensively this season. They have held their past five opponents to 98 points or fewer as they rank in the top six in the league in the key defensively categories. The Trailblazers are a four seed in the west. Oklahoma City has played their best basketball of the season as they have moved into the eighth seed in the west. They will be on a back to back on Friday as they carry a seven game win streak into Phoenix on Thursday night. Kevin Durant is expected to be sidelined with foot pain for at least a week.
