Prediction

The Spurs have been playing better as they got most of their players back and have won 3 of their last 4 games including Miami. The Heat have won 3 games in a row but they're having trouble with the injuries as they have mostly all of the team questionable or probable in the injury report, in fact they got fined by the NBA because of these issues. The Heat are just 9-19-2 ATS this season and 7 points are too many to cover in a neutral site. Give me the Spurs with the points.
