Who will prevail as both big men are sidelined?

The Golden State Warriors are set to tip-off in South Beach against the Miami Heat. As reported earlier, the Dubs will be missing center DeMarcus Cousins for “load management” since the team is on the first night of a back-to-back. Kevon Looney will start in his place.

Fortunately Golden State will be getting another big man back in their lineup to hold down the fort until “Boogie” returns. Jordan Bell is available to play tonight after his one game absence.

On the Miami side, they will also be missing out on the services of a capable center. Hassan Whiteside will not be in their lineup tonight.

With the two behemoths out, the floor should be a little more wide open for two teams that love to get downhill and attack. This should be a fun tilt, hopefully the champs can pull out a sweep of the Heat and keep the pressure on in the race for the #1 seed in the western conference!
