The NBA is back in action today as the Miami Heat will clash with the San Antonio Spurs on the hardwood in the Lone Star State. Miami beat Oklahoma City 115-108 on the road Friday night in their last contest. And on the other hand, San Antonio was upended 121-120 at home by Atlanta in their previous contest Friday night.
Miami Heat Form
The Heat is got their second straight win as they took down Oklahoma City on the road Friday night. Also, it seems that the team is in good form as they have a good 9.5 game advantage over the Magic in the Southeast Division. As for the Eastern Conference playoff picture, Miami is 2nd with 7 games behind the Bucks for the top spot. Miami is a good team this season and there more to come from them.
On the offensive side of the game, the Heat score an average of 111.6 points per game this season. And this record is enough for the 12th spot in the league in scoring. Also, they have an average of 45.5 boards per game combined with 25.2 dimes per night.
As for the defensive game on the hardwood, the Heat concedes an average of 107.8 points per game.
San Antonio Spurs Form
The Spurs are not playing well in recent weeks. Also, they have suffered 3 defeats in their last 4 games. Including a hard to take defeat in the game against the Hawks. And now, the Spurs are 4th in the Southwest Division with 9 games behind the Rockets for the top spot. As for the Western Conference playoff picture, San Antonio was 9th with two games behind the Grizzlies for the final playoff spot.
On the offensive side of the game, the Spurs score an average off 113.8 points per game. And that is the 8th record in the league in scoring. Also, they have an average of 46.6 boards a contest combined with 24.8 dimes per game. On the defensive side of the game, the Spurs concede an average of 114.9 points a game. And this record is enough for the 26th spot in scoring defence. DeMar DeRozan leads the team with 22.7 points per contest this season.
Miami had some hard away games this season. And their away form is something that they need to work on. On the other side, the Spurs are not playing well. They even lost a game against Atlanta. Therefore, I expect an away win for the Heat in this game.
