Miami Heat @ San Antonio Spurs

Despite leaving Miami with a split after winning Game 1, the San Antonio Spurs were left stunned after being destroyed by the Heat in the second half of Game 2.

The defending champions clinched a 19-point blow-out win at the AA Arena on Sunday night, thus grabbing the momentum back from their rivals with contributions from across the roster.

While the Miami supporting cast stepped up, San Antonio's "Big Three" went missing - all suffered disappointing nights.

More importantly, the Spurs turned the ball over 17 times compared to just four in the first game, which incidentally led to 19 points for Miami, and they will understand the importance of looking after the ball better.

However, they will benefit from being back on their home court, where Miami have a 3-22 record and with Gregg Popovich ready to not only examine, but put right, what went wrong.

San Antonio have plenty to improve on and Miami will secure at least one road win, but just as the Heat reacted, back a noisy AT&T Center to inspire a reaction out of the likes of Duncan, Parker and Ginobili to get their championship bid back on track.

Recommended Bets:
Back the Spurs to beat the Heat in Game 3 @ 1.8
Back under 187.5 pts @ 1.96
