The Spurs hold a 2-1 lead in the series following a convincing 111-92 road win in Game 3.

They had just defeated the Spurs on Sunday to gain a split on the road, and took over home court advantage in the series. However, it seems they just couldn’t stand prosperity. They allowed the Spurs to jump out to a huge lead in the first quarter, and never fully recovered. They were able to trim the deficit to 7-points early in the 4</span><sup>th</sup><span style="font-size:1em"> quarter but were unable to get any closer. The two most glaring contributors to their terrible performance were horrible defensive play, and committing 20 turnovers. After all, they shot 52% from the field, and a stellar 10 for 21 (48%) from beyond the three-point line. As a matter of fact, the Heat have shot the ball very well in this series converting 50.4% of their field goal attempts, and have been a superb 43.5% from beyond the three-point line. Unfortunately, they’ve allowed the Spurs to shoot a sizzling 53.4% from the field, and average 105.7 points per game.</span></p> <p style="text-align:left"> </p> <p style="text-align:left" align="center"><b>NBA Playoff Betting System<br /></b><span style="font-size:1em">Any playoff favorite, or playoff underdog of 1.5 or less, that has a winning percentage of .624 or better, that’s coming off a playoff home favorite loss by 10-points or more, and they allowed 94-points or more, has gone 22-7 ATS since 1990.
