The Spurs are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Heat are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings in San Antonio and 0-6 ATS in the last 6 meetings overall.
I'm not sure why the Heat are such heavy underdogs, but I'll take it. The Heat have looked like an Eastern Conference contender since getting Johnson and allowing Josh Richardson to get more minutes. This should be a very compeitive game to where the points will come in handy.
