The Miami Heat will be on the road to take on the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday, December 29th.
The tip-off is set for 8:30 ET from AT&T Center.
San Antonio started off as a 3.5 point favorite and that number is now down to 3. The total has gone from 215.5 to 217.5.
So far, the Heat have had a pretty good season. I have liked what I have seen out of them for the majority of the time.
This team has won four games in a row. Making it a fifth in a row will be no easy task, but I do feel they are up for it.
There was a lot of pressure on this squad this year. After they got bounced out in four games to the Bucks last year, some folks began to question whether or not they were legit. It is one thing to have success in the regular season, but it is a completely different animal to have that kind of production in the postseason.
If I had to rank the top teams in the East, I do not feel I would put this crew at the same level as the Nets or the Bucks, but I would certainly put them in the tier below that. Also, that is not to say that they couldn’t give those teams trouble.
Miami picked up a win over the Washington Wizards on Tuesday by a score of 119-112. They will look to have a similar performance when they play on the second night of a back-to-back in San Antonio.
The offense for these guys was rolling against the Wizards. Tyler Herro was the leading scorer with 32 points and Jimmy Butler added 25 points and 15 assists. If they can get that kind of production from their best players, they will present a ton of issues for the opposition.
San Antonio Spurs
All in all, the Spurs have not looked all that great this year. They sometimes show flashes, but they have not been consistent enough this year.
San Antonio currently has a record of 14-19, which puts them in 10th place. Unless they get much better as the year goes on, they will be in that area of seeding.
When people think of the Spurs, they think of a team that is always competing for a title. That just is not the reality right now, though. They just need to be relevant again.
San Antonio lost to the Utah Jazz on Monday by a score of 110-104. As you can see, it was a close one, but the better team just executed more when it mattered most.
What should really sting this crew about their loss to Utah is the fact that Donovan Mithcell did not even play. If a team is without their best player, you really need to be able to beat them.

Miami Heat vs. San Antonio Spurs NBA Analysis:
This is a matchup between two teams that have been playing very well as of late. When they square off, something has to give.
I am very curious to see how the Heat plays in the second night of a back-to-back. Oftentimes, teams are not as sharp in the second one.
If Miami wants to be taken seriously, they cannot drop this one. The good teams figure out ways to get it done in these spots.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Heat ATS
Miami is the better team here and I feel like they will show it. I was actually a bit surprised that they are a dog in the game, truthfully.
San Antonio has been very good ATS as of late, but I do not love them in this spot. For me, the 3 is too high to lay with the home team here.
