The under is 4-1 in Warriors last 5 overall. The Heat are 5-1-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Golden State and 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
On paper the Heat should win this game, but we've been saying that about the Heat all season. The Heat just lost to the JV Clippers, they've lost to the Pistons and Wizards. The Heat aren't good offensively and they can't defend the three. I'm not backing the Heat until they proven they've turned things around. For me, it's Warriors or pass.
