The Miami Heat (39-21) host the San Antonio Spurs (24-36) tonight at the FTX Arena with tipoff at 8:00pm EST.

Dejounte Murray, Keldon Johnson and Jakob Poeltl are all out for the Spurs, with coach Gregg Popovich electing to rest them a night after they beat the Washington Wizards in double overtime. Regardless of who he plays, Popovich has a chance to tie Don Nelson for the NBA all-time regular-season coaching wins record.

Dewayne Dedmond returns to the Heat after missing the last three games with a back injury.
