Much of the talk ahead of Thursday night has surrounded LeBron James, who will be focused on avenging a Finals sweep back in 2007 by the Spurs while he was with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Both teams appreciate that the NBA's MVP is a completely different proposition six years on and he has stated "you can't dare me to do anything I don't want to do in 2013".

San Antonio have been off the court for just over a week, but given the age of their "Big Three", it may well have been a welcome rest.

In contrast, Miami eventually overcame the Indiana Pacers on Monday night, but know that both Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh need to play big roles if they are to get off to a strong start.

That is something they have struggled with in the postseason though, losing Game 1 against the Chicago Bulls before a last-gasp James lay-up saved them against the Pacers.

Expect the Spurs to split the opening two games by taking Game 1, and with both regular season meetings at the AA Arena seeing both teams score over 100 points apiece, the points market is also one to look at.

Recommended Bets
Back the San Antonio Spurs to win Game 1 @ 3.15
Back over 188.5 pts @ 1.91
