San Antonio Spurs: The Spurs (13-3 straight-up, 10-5-1 against the spread) have won the first five games of their road trip, going 4-1 ATS. The "over" has also gone 5-0, although one only due to overtime. San Antonio will be in a back-to-back situation on Thursday after winning 110-89 at Orlando on Wednesday. This team has tremendous depth, making up for the current injuries to Kawhi Leonard and Stephen Jackson (click to check updated NBA injury report). However, Coach Gregg Popovich is expected to rest Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker for this game (please note: video was shot before this info became available).

Miami Heat: The Heat (10-3 SU, 6-7 ATS) have won four straight, last playing on Saturday, and are 8-1 ATS in their last nine playing on three days of rest or more. Miami is also a perfect 6-0 SU at home this year, but just 3-3 ATS. The "over" is 5-1 in those home contests, with the team scoring a much higher 114.8 points per game as opposed to 96.1 ppg away. San Antonio and Miami last met in January (a 120-98 Heat victory) with the home team 4-1 SU and ATS in the last five matchups.

Denver Nuggets: The Nuggets (8-7 SU, 10-5 ATS) had a four-game winning streak snapped Monday with a 105-103 loss at Utah. However, they did cover as 3-point underdogs and are 5-0 ATS in their last five. Denver relies on balanced scoring for its 99.4 ppg (ranked ninth) with six guys averaging double-digits. The "over" is 5-1 in Denver’s last six away, scoring 101.3 ppg and allowing 104.7 ppg.

Golden State Warriors: The Warriors (8-6 SU, 8-5-1 ATS) are hanging in there without injured center Andrew Bogut and should be well-rested having been idle since Saturday. That was a 96-85 home win over Minnesota as 3-point favorites, making them 3-0 SU and ATS in their last three at home. This is already the third meeting between the teams this year with Denver going 2-0 SU and ATS. That includes a 102-91 win as 6 ½-point home favorites last Friday.
