Thursday's NBA Free Pick: Miami Heat -7.5

New York vs. Miami, 12/06/2012 20:00
Point Spread: -7½/-110 Miami

Thursday's NBA Free Pick: Miami Heat -7.5

The Heat have had this game circled for over a month, as they got embarrassed in a 84-104 loss at New York back on Nov. 2. Their lack of focus in their 101-105 loss at Washington on Monday was likely do them looking ahead to this game.

Miami catches the Knicks in a great spot, as New York found themselves in a battle last night at Charlotte. The Knicks were able to escape with a 100-98 victory, but will likely struggle to match the Heat's intensity tonight. New York is 0-3 this season when playing in the second game of a back-to-back road set, which includes a 10-point loss to the Grizzlies and 7-point loss to the Nets.

The Heat always seem to play their best at home and have routinely stepped up to the challenge when playing on TNT Thursday. Miami is 18-8 ATS in their last 26 home games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Thursday games. BET THE HEAT!
