Miami Heat Return from China to 2/7 Odds of Winning Opener
Miami Heat has been insanely busy recently with a trip to China, playing three games in eight days and preparing for next season.
However, despite possible exhaustion, they look good for their opening match against Boston Celtics; they’re clear favourites to win with odds of 2/7 while the Celtics have odds of 11/4.
On Tuesday afternoon the players were already back in the gym having played their preseason opener in Atlanta and two further matches in China.
Coach Eric Spoelstra said it was “good to be back in the gym. We didn’t waste any time getting back to work.
The trip was a great trip from a lot of different levels, but there’s nothing like coming back in your practice gym.”
The team are slowly adjusting back to its regular schedule after their travels. They were given the day after flying back off (it was a 16 hour flight) on Tuesday Spoelstra had them start practice at noon, on Wednesday at 11am and 10am on Thursday.
It won’t be long before they are in the middle of next season and the trip to China will just be a memory, in the meantime Miami Heat is pushing through and are looking good for the season opener.
