Game 2 is in the books of the 2013 NBA Finals, and to be honest it went pretty similar to how I assumed that it would. The Miami Heat came out looking for redemption after that Game 1 loss, and they got it with a huge second half run against the San Antonio Spurs. The Heat got past the Game 1 loss to win Game 2 103-84, thanks to some great play across the board, but of course from the leagues MVP LeBron James. LeBron led the way with another near triple double, but they didn’t need as much from him scoring wise as they have in past games. Game 3 now heads to San Antonio though, and remember that the NBA Finals are going to be in the standard 2-3-2 layout, meaning that the Spurs will be home for three in a row now. Game 3 will be played Tuesday night at 9:00pm EST.
The Heat definitely play their best when they can get strong play from the supporting cast of players like Ray Allen, Mario Chalmers, and Chris “Birdman” Andersen. If these players can play big roles, then it helps LeBron James and Dwayne Wade be able to make the plays that they need to in order for Miami to succeed. The Heat will be in for a massively tough game though on Tuesday night heading into San Antonio. These fans have waited for the Spurs to get another shot at a title, and now their fans are going to be loud, and look to help out the home team as much as possible.
The Spurs have a ridiculous amount of talent, but just couldn’t produce as much as what was needed to win Game 2. Tim Duncan struggled a bit shooting the ball, but that’s something that probably won’t happen again over the next few games. Danny Green has been a nice strong point for the Spurs, but I’m expecting to see more Tony Parker and Kawhi Leonard this Tuesday night. The Spurs are probably the most well coached team in the NBA, so you can bet that they’ll be ready for this game after the brutal Game 2 loss.

With this being the first game in San Antonio of the 2013 NBA Finals, I definitely love the home team. Their fans are going to be ready to roll, they are going to be looking to bounce back and make a statement after that tough loss last game, and Coach Pop just isn’t going to let them come out flat. This team is too talented to get walked on, and I think that the Spurs will grab a 2-1 series lead after Tuesday night, thanks to a strong performance and an six point win.
I’m going with the San Antonio Spurs- 97 over the Miami Heat- 91
Sports Betting Line and Odds:
Miami Heat: +2 (current line at most sportsbooks)
San Antonio Spurs: -2
I fully expect this line to favor the San Antonio Spurs. Heading home, they are too strong to not be favored, but I don’t think that they are going to be laying enough points to justify taking the Heat. I expect the Spurs to be favored by a couple, and to definitely get the cover here. I’m picking the Spurs as long as I’m not too far off with the prediction on the number of points that they are laying.
UPDATE: Line came out with the Spurs -2.5 and has now dropped to -2. I love that line and gotta take the Spurs here!
FREE Pick: San Antonio Spurs -2 : 1 Unit (-109)
