Game Story:

After thrashing the shorthanded Pelicans, the Miami Heat (41-29) look to close out their back to back with a win against the Spurs (59-11) at 8:30 P.M. in San Antonio.

The Heat and Spurs meet for the second and final match up this regular season. Earlier this season, the Spurs recorded a 119-101 win against Miami on Feb. 9.

San Antonio has won four straight against the Heat after Miami had won five consecutive games prior to that. Miami is 18-38 all-time versus the Spurs during the regular season and is 15-14 in games played in Miami. The Heat is 3-24 all-time in San Antonio during regular season.

Though the Spurs looked unbeatable against the Warriors on Saturday, they fell to the Charlotte Hornets on Monday and with that it gave the Heat an opening to continue moving up in the standings if they can somehow be the first visiting team to win in San Antonio in a year. However, the Spurs have yet to lose back-to-back games this season and Miami will be playing on the second night of a back-to-back set.

Whatever the case, it should be a great matchup.
