The Clippers and the Heat are very likely NBA Finals contenders this year, and this is going to be a great game in South Beach. If the Clips can figure out how to pull this one off, it would be a huge emotional victory on the road. We’ll have to see where G Chauncey Billups, G Chris Paul, F Blake Griffin, and G Jamal Crawford are tomorrow, but from what it’s sounding like, all but CP3 are at least going to give it a go in such an important game. If Billups is in the fold, it will be a huge pick-me-up for a team that has been playing without its best guards for the better part of the last few weeks. Here’s the problem that LA has, though. The team just hasn’t played all that well on the road, dropping six out of eight both SU and ATS since January 21st, and the only wins have come against Orlando and Minnesota, two of the worst teams in the NBA. This is a significantly different challenge though, and it comes against a Miami outfit that is 20-3 SU and 12-11 ATS here at American Airlines Arena this season. That’s good enough for us to want to back the Heat and lay what should be a relatively short spread.
Clippers @ Heat Pick: Miami Heat
Clippers @ Heat Prediction: Heat 103 – Clippers 96
