Locked in a tight battle for the last guaranteed playoff spot, the Brooklyn Nets and Miami Heat will square off on Saturday night in a critical game for both sides. These teams enter Saturday’s game moving in opposite directions. Despite an atrocious 26-45-2 record against the spread this season, Miami has won four of its last five games and seven of its last 10. During that stretch, the Heat have won six of their seven home games, so the Nets are facing a tough game on Saturday. Brooklyn has completely fallen apart on the team's recent homestand as the new-look team continues to gel after a major roster shakeup at the trade deadline. The only silver lining is the Nets are 4-2 straight up and 5-1 against the spread in their last six road games, so with serious playoff implications in this game, the Nets might be able to get their act together and challenge the red-hot Heat.

North Texas vs Wisconsin
After the NCAA Tournament gets the spotlight over the weekend, college basketball fans can turn their attention to next week’s NIT semifinals. The first half of Tuesday’s semifinal features the Wisconsin Badgers and the North Texas Mean Green. Wisconsin is the last remaining power-conference team of the four semifinalists. Before the NIT, the Badgers hadn’t won back-to-back games since early January, but they’ve looked good in wins over Bradley, Liberty, and Oregon. While it’s not the most dynamic Wisconsin offense we’ve seen in recent years, the Badgers have four players who average double figures, so there is good balance to their attack. As for North Texas, the Mean Green had an impressive season, finishing second in Conference USA. However, they didn’t even play a power-conference opponent until beating Oklahoma State in the quarterfinals. At times, UNT can be overly reliant on Tylor Perry, who averages 17.3 points per game and has scored over 20 points in each NIT game. With time to prepare, the Badgers should have a plan to contain Perry, allowing Wisconsin to eke out a close win and reach the NIT finals.
