The San Antonio Spurs need a win after splitting their last 10 games. The San Antonio Spurs are averaging 113.8 points on 47.2 percent shooting and allowing 114.9 points on 46.3 percent shooting. DeMar DeRozan is averaging 22.7 points and 5.4 rebounds while LaMarcus Aldridge is averaging 19.1 points and 2.4 assists.

The San Antonio Spurs are allowing 36.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.6 rebounds per game. The San Antonio Spurs have split their last six home games.
The Heat are 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 games following a straight up win and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as an underdog. The Spurs are 8-21 ATS in their last 29 home games. The over is 4-0 in Heat last 4 road games. The over is 7-1 in Spurs last 8 home games. The Heat are 3-7 ATS in the last 10 meetings in San Antonio and 4-10 ATS in the last 14 meetings.
The Miami Heat haven't been nearly as good on the road as they have been at home this season, but they've been one of the more consistent teams overall and just cruised to a victory over these Spurs earlier this week. The San Antonio Spurs are seeing better results lately, but they're still inconsistent and a loss Friday night to the Atlanta Hawks makes you believe not much has changed with this team. The Spurs are 6-15 ATS at home and are winning by an average of just .2 points. In a near toss up, I'll take the better and more consistent team in the Heat.
