NBA FREE PICK: Take Golden State. According to latest NBA trends, Miami is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS loss, 3-8 ATS in their last 11 when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game,  2-7 ATS in their last 9 games playing on 1 days rest, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games, 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games overall and are 1-6 ATS last 7 road games. Golden State is 4-1 ATS last 5 meetings, Dog is 6-1-1 ATS last 8 in series,  4-0 ATS in their last 4 vs. Eastern Conference,  12-3-1 ATS in their last 16 games following a S.U. loss, 8-2 ATS in their last 10 Wednesday games and is 8-3 ATS in their last 11 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.

The Miami Heat have had issues on this West Coast swing. They've won just one of four and for whatever reason, stars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh were benched at the end of the Utah loss on Monday. Maybe it was Bosh's one rebound in 27 minutes that did it for Eric Spoelstra. Golden State beat the Heat in Miami on Dec. 12, getting a layup from rookie Draymond Green with 0.9 seconds left to secure a 97-95 win. Miami is last in the NBA in rebounding and has seen its offense lose focus of late as well. Golden State received 27 points from Klay Thompson and 22 points and 13 rebounds from Lee in the win at Miami while Steph Curry was held to nine points. The Warriors don't fear the Heat as they've taken back-to-back games including a 111-106 overtime win at home on Jan. 10, 2012. They are also 12-5 at home, while Miami is 8-9 on the road. Expect the Heat's troubles on the road to continue on Wednesday night.
