Point Spread Pick:
The schedule maker certainly isn’t doing the Heat any favors with this their 4th game in 6 nights. Unlike the set up before the Houston game they have had a day off and should rebound here tonight. They ‘ve won the last 3 in this series including an easy 113 -101 win in Miami on January 26th and we feel there is no reason to think that they won’t do so again tonight.
Take the Miami Heat +2.
