On Tuesday, the Miami Heat will host Game 3 of the 2014 NBA Finals against the San Antonio Spurs. Game time is set at 9PM ET and a sellout crowd is expected at the AmericanAirlines Arena.
The NBA Finals is tied a 1-1. The series now shifts to Miami's homecourt for Games 3 and 4. Miami has done their job to split the first two games in San Antonio and snatched the homecourt advantage.
The Heat has won 11 straight playoff games at home dating back from last year's NBA Finals. If Miami could protect and win their homecourt, San Antonio will have a tough time to overcome a 3-1 series deficit.
The Spurs knows that they have the ability to win on the road. They did it against Portland and Oklahoma City. San Antonio must play 48 minutes of precise basketball if they want to beat Miami.
The sportsbook handicappers have installed the Miami Heat as a 4.5-point favorite to win Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday night.
