The Miami Heat (30-28) will travel to Texas to take on the San Antonio Spurs (28-28). Both teams come into this fixture having won their previous two games as they chase a playoff berth in their respective conferences.
The Spurs continued their impressive road form this season by overcoming the Phoenix Suns and Indiana Pacers. Meanwhile, Bam Adebayo helped the Heat outlast the Brooklyn Nets before Kendrick Nunn led them to a blowout win against the Houston Rockets on Monday.
Miami has stayed steady in 7th place in the Eastern Conference at 30-28. However, the Heat sit only two games behind the Atlanta Hawks in the East’s fourth seed. They will need to finish the season strong to not only make the playoffs but also avoid a difficult first round matchup.
Miami entered Sunday’s game with the Nets losers of three straight after winning six of their previous seven. They have now won their last 2 games featuring a 109-107 buzzer beater win over Brooklyn Sunday and a 113-91 beatdown of Houston Monday.
Despite having 4 of their best players inactive and down by 1 at halftime, Miami was able to pull away in the second half to win by 22 points. Kendrick Nunn shined in his elevated roll finishing with a game high 30 points, 8 assists, and 7 rebounds.
Small Forward Jimmy Butler (right ankle sprain), Center Bam Adebayo (right knee soreness), Guard Victor Oladipo (right knee soreness) and backup Guard Tyler Herro (foot soreness) all missed Monday’s contest and are uncertain for Wednesday.
San Antonio Spurs
In the Western Conference playoff picture, San Antonio is in 10th with an even 28-28 record. They hold a commanding 3.5 game lead over New Orleans for the final play-in spot.
The Spurs have won 2 straight games on the road; 111-85 Sunday in Phoenix and 109-94 Monday in Indiana. In the most recent contest San Antonio was able to jump out to a 15 point lead after the 1st quarter and held onto the differential the rest of the way. Derrick White scored a game high 25 points for the Spurs.
Their wins against Phoenix and Indiana showed just what the San Antonio Spurs can do on the road, limiting two usually high-scoring offenses with stifling defensive play.

Free Miami Heat vs. San Antonio Spurs NBA Prediction:
The result of this matchup could very well depend on which Miami Heat stars are available to play. The Heat were missing Butler, Adebayo, and Herro in the last game and they remain questionable at the time of writing so that’s something to keep an eye on.
Don’t expect a high-scoring game. The San Antonio Spurs rank top in defensive rating over the last five games while the Miami Heat hold a top ten defense over the season.
After two straight impressive road wins, I’m giving the San Antonio Spurs a slight edge in this one at home.
