The San Antonio Spurs played in a marathon game last night, beating the Washington Wizards 157-153 in double overtime. The Spurs came out of the gate following the All-Star break ready to go and will now face the Miami Heat tonight.
The Heat, who are atop the Eastern Conference, are also coming off a win. With playoff implications coming in every game down the stretch, this game will be key for both teams. Which team will have enough left in the tank to get the win tonight?
Here are the odds for the matchup via WynnBET.

Spurs vs. Heat Prediction and Pick
The Heat were able to turn it on in the fourth quarter last night and pull away from the New York Knicks, but tonight will be a little tougher against the Spurs.
San Antonio is 3-2 ATS in its last five games and 2-1 ATS as the underdog. While I would normally pick the Spurs to cover in this spot, especially considering how long the Heat let the Knicks hang around last night, they are on the second night of a back-to-back and just played a double overtime game. There will be some let down in this game.
Miami is 14-12 ATS as the home team this season, giving me a little hope they can cover against a tired Spurs team.
Lean: Heat -9.5 (-110)
