Heat at Lakers: What bettors need to know
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Miami Heat at Los Angeles Lakers (-2.5, 205)

LeBron James is fresh off becoming the youngest player in NBA history to reach 20,000 career points as he leads the Miami Heat into Thursday’s contest against the host Los Angeles Lakers. James had 25 points and 10 rebounds in Wednesday’s 92-75 victory over the Golden State Warriors. The superstar reached the milestone at 28 years, 17 days old. The previous fastest was Kobe Bryant of the Lakers, who did it at 29 years and 122 days.

Los Angeles has a modest two-game winning streak after losing its previous six contests. The Lakers won games over the Cleveland Cavaliers and Milwaukee Bucks by a combined 36 points. In his second game back from a shoulder injury, center Dwight Howard contributed 31 points and 16 rebounds in Tuesday’s win over the Bucks. Miami is 2-3 on a six-game road swing that ends against the Lakers. The Heat return for two home games and then head right back out for four more road tilts.

TV: 10:30 p.m. ET, TNT

ABOUT THE HEAT (25-12, 18-19 ATS): James also reached 5,000 career assists in the contest against the Warriors. In terms of games played, James reached 20,000 points in 726 regular-season contests, which is seventh-fastest. Wilt Chamberlain was the fastest on that scale, making it in 499 games. Nonetheless, James was thrilled about being the youngest ever to reach the milestone. “It means everything,” James said. “It means a lot. First of all, like I continue to say, it means I’ve been able to be healthy. To be out on the floor and do what I love to do, I love the game of basketball and I try to give everything to the game. And hopefully it continues to give back to me.”

ABOUT THE LAKERS (17-21, 16-21-1 ATS): Forward Pau Gasol is expected to return after missing five straight games due to a concussion. Gasol has begun making significant progress and would have to be cleared by doctors on Thursday before he could take the court. “It’s been a learning experience,” Gasol said after Wednesday’s practice. “The struggling of getting up every day and not getting better, constant headaches, being bothered by light or noise and not knowing what the next day will be like or not knowing when you’ll be healthy. You do a little research about concussions and it’s an unfortunate hit, but those can happen any day or any game.”

TRENDS:

* Heat are 0-5 ATS in their last five games following a win.
* Lakers are 0-3-1 ATS in their last four vs. NBA Southeast foes.
* Under is 4-0 in Lakers’ last four overall.
* Heat are 7-1 ATS in the last eight meetings.

BUZZER BEATERS:

1. The Lakers are 9-4 against Miami in games played at the Staples Center.

2. The Heat are allowing just 85.4 points over their last seven outings.

3. Lakers F Earl Clark is questionable due to a bout with gastroenteritis.

Warriors at Spurs: What bettors need to know
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Golden State Warriors at San Antonio Spurs (-12, 203)

After jumping out to a hot start as one of the surprise teams in the league, the Golden State Warriors have hit their first rough patch. Friday's visit to the San Antonio Spurs, who have won 13 straight at home, is going to make it difficult to pull out of the slump. The Warriors have dropped four of their last five and hope to have Stephen Curry back from an ankle injury by Friday.

The Spurs own the best home record in the NBA at 17-2 and have won their last two at AT&T Center by an average of 19.5 points. Manu Ginobili will miss his second straight game on Friday due to a hamstring strain but the Spurs did not appear to miss their sixth man in a 103-82 won over the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday. Golden State has lost back-to-back games but has yet to drop three in a row this season. To avoid that third straight setback, the Warriors will need to win in San Antonio for the first time since 1997.

TV: 8:30 p.m. ET, CSBA (Golden State), FSSW (San Antonio)

ABOUT THE WARRIORS (23-14, 20-16-1 ATS): Golden State has dropped 15 straight overall to the Spurs and 27 in a row at San Antonio. Curry, who stepped on a teammate’s foot and rolled his ankle in practice on Wednesday morning, is listed as day-to-day. Without their top scorer available against the Miami Heat on Wednesday, the Warriors went down early and were blown out 92-75 at home. Jarrett Jack moved into Curry’s starting spot, weakening what has been a very strong bench. The lack of offense has been a big problem during the recent slump as Golden State has failed to reach 90 points in three of its last four setbacks. The Warriors’ struggles are coming during a long stretch against top competition, with the Denver Nuggets, Memphis and Los Angeles Clippers marking the other three recent defeats. Golden State still has to face the Clippers, Oklahoma City and the Chicago Bulls as part of five games in eight days.

ABOUT THE SPURS (30-11, 24-16-1 SU): Four of the last five teams to come to the AT&T Center have failed to reach 90 points as San Antonio continues to improve its defense. The Spurs held the Grizzlies to 26.6 percent in the second half of Wednesday’s triumph and limited the Minnesota Timberwolves to 37.1 percent in Sunday’s 106-88 win. Ginobili is expected to miss up to two weeks with the hamstring strain but San Antonio has the pieces to cover a short absence. Stephen Jackson and Gary Neal each got over 20 minutes off the bench on Wednesday and Boris Diaw received some extra time as part of a bigger lineup. The Spurs are closing out a three-game homestand with the Warriors and will play three of their next four on the road beginning Saturday at Atlanta.

TRENDS:

* Favorite is 20-6-2 ATS in the last 28 meetings.
* Over is 3-1-1 in the last five meetings.
* Over is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings in San Antonio.
* Warriors are 7-19-2 ATS in the last 28 meetings.
* Road team is 3-1-1 ATS in the last five meetings.
* Warriors are 5-16 ATS in the last 21 meetings in San Antonio.

BUZZER BEATERS:

1. Spurs G Tony Parker has averaged 18.8 points on 51.7 percent shooting and seven assists in 38 career games against the Warriors.

2. Golden State F David Lee has recorded four straight double-doubles.

3. San Antonio is 3-2 without Ginobili this season.
