Point Spread Pick:
The most important factor in making this pick is to know the status of Thunder guard Russell Westbrook. It’s not just what he brings to the court. It is the extra high the team should be on if he returns tonight. He did practice yesterday and there is a lot of hope that he’ll play. The Heat have the advantage of having played since the break and with the status of Westbrook undetermined we’re not going to make a final call on the game at this time.
