Heat Look To Get Back On Track Versus Spurs In NBA Finals Rematch

Posted by Craig Parsons on 3/5/2014 8:55:33 PM

LeBron James and the Miami Heat had their win streak ended at eight by the Houston Rockets on Tuesday night. Two nights later, they will try to get back on track in a rematch of last year’s NBA Finals. The Heat will visit the San Antonio Spurs in the first of a Thursday night tripleheader, and a possible preview of what we can expect again this season. Miami is still trying to close the gap on the Indiana Pacers for top spot in the Eastern Conference, but they will have a tough time doing it on the road against a hungry Spurs’ team that is in a similar spot in the Western Conference.

NBA Betting Line: San Antonio – 1.5

San Antonio has won four-straight games to stay within two games of the Oklahoma City Thunder for first in the Western Conference, and they understand the advantage that could come with that top seed. The Spurs have won 21 of the 29 home games they have played, and will look to make a statement in the most highly anticipated game of the season so far.

NBA Betting Preview: Miami Heat

For as good as the Heat have been this year, they haven’t been as good on the road as at home, and that includes a tough loss to the Rockets on Tuesday night. Michael Beasley scored 24 points off the bench, Dwyane Wade had 24, and LeBron pitched in 22, but it wasn’t enough for Miami as four of the five Houston starters hit or exceeded the 19-point mark. That included a team-high 22 for Dwight Howard, who was able to dominate the interior, and somewhat expose the Heat in the paint. Miami will have to bounce back and play better basketball on the inside in this one, or they could be in for another tough loss.

NBA Betting Preview: San Antonio Spurs

The Spurs are coming off a 21-point road win over LeBron’s old team the Cleveland Cavaliers, which may be the perfect tune up for this contest. San Antonio’s starters didn’t see much action in that game, and Boris Diaw, Patty Mills, and Marco Belinelli stepped up with big performances in order to make sure they weren’t needed. That should mean Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, and company are fresh for Thursday night’s game, and while they have all moved past the heartbreak of last year’s NBA Finals, it has to be on their minds. That should serve as added motivation for San Antonio, as they look to give their fans a show.

NBA Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

The Spurs should have a added sense of motivation in this one, as they look to earn a measure of redemption with a win over the defending NBA champions at home. San Antonio proved last year that it could compete with this Miami team, and it should be able to steal an important home win and keep pace right behind the Thunder atop the Western Conference.
