This Sunday marks the start of the NBA televising nationally over ABC TV. This will motivate the Miami Heat as the play in front of a national audience. You have to pick your spots with this team because they have played in three straight Finals and the wear and tear of playing NBA pro basketball from October through mid-June for the past three years could be taking its toll on the team. The Heat has protected their home court for the most part as they enter play with an 18-3 straight up mark. Miami should see the return on Dwyane Wade back into the lineup as he has missed the past three games to rest his knees following the long road trip. The San Antonio Spurs have suffered some key injuries that will impact their post defense. Tiago Splitter will be out for at least another three weeks with a shoulder issue. Danny Green is out with a hand injury. Kawhi Leonard will be out a month with a broken hand. These are key ingredients down low for the Spurs that help them protect the rim. This will open up room for LeBron James to drive the basket for non-contested layups in this game as the Spurs will have issues trying to guard the Heat’s star. Miami continues in 2013-14 to shoot very well on their home court as they average 104 points and 50.8% shooting from the field. The Heat connect on 37.3% from three in their home arena.
