The San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat meet Tuesday in NBA preseason action at the American Airlines Arena.

The San Antonio Spurs look for a bounce back showing after getting waxed by the Orlando Magic as six-point favorite. The San Antonio Spurs are averaging 89 points on 38.8 percent shooting and allowing 125 points on 52.6 percent shooting. Bryn Forbes is averaging 24 points and two assists while Dejounte Murray is averaging 11 points and four rebounds. Lonnie Walker IV is dishing five assists and Keldon Johnson is grabbing two rebounds. The San Antonio Spurs are shooting 44.4 percent from beyond the arc and 75 percent from the free throw line. The San Antonio Spurs are allowing 36.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 40 rebounds per game. The San Antonio Spurs have split their last six preseason games.

The Miami Heat enter the preseason with high expectations after the addition of Jimmy Butler and the drafting of Tyler Herro. Throw in a healthy Dion Waiters and more playing time for Bam Adebayo, and the Heat feel like they should be a top-four seed in the East this season. The Heat are deep, well coached and about as conditioned as any team in the league. It’s all about all of the pieces coming together and not getting in one of those funks where they lose to low level competition that prevents them from climbing in the standings. The Miami Heat have split their last six preseason games.

The Spurs are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Tuesday games. The under is 6-1 in Spurs last 7 games playing on 2 days rest and 4-1 in Spurs last 5 road games. The Heat are 2-9 ATS in their last 11 Tuesday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 6-1 in Heat last 7 home games. The Spurs are 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Miami and 10-3 ATS in the last 13 meetings. The over is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings.

The San Antonio Spurs didn't seem to care in their preseason opener at home, so I doubt they'll have a ton of energy going on the road. The Miami Heat have high expectations for the first time since the LeBron era, and their practices since Jimmy Butler arrived have been very physical and competitive. You want to back teams that are excited to play basketball, even if these games don't count. Laying the bucket with the Heat at home may be the best bet on Tuesday's card.
