You have to pick your spots carefully when you play on the Miami Heat. The team has played in three straight Finals series so that means they have played basketball from October through mid-June for three straight seasons. That takes a toll on the players legs and bodies. Miami has not brought a sense of urgency into this regular season when facing teams who are not consider the elite teams of the league. San Antonio fit that profile of elite and what we saw was Miami’s “A” game in their 113-101 home victory on Sunday over national television. The Heat took a 20 point lead after three quarters in the victory. Oklahoma City was the Thunders NBA Finals opponents two seasons ago. They are still considered an elite team in the NBA so Miami will come with a huge effort here. A huge benefit for Miami is they are a rested team having last played on Sunday. There is line value for Miami because the power rating is factoring those so-so efforts by Miami against bad teams. Oklahoma City is playing without Russell Westbrook who is sidelined following knee surgery. The Heat will take the challenge to focus on Kevin Durant. Without Russell Westbrook in the lineup we have seen OKC allowing so rather high point totals in recent games. Miami is an outstanding offensive team on their home court as they average 104 points, 51% shooting and 37.4% coming from the three point line With a focused Miami in this spot they are the play laying the short number.
