NBA FREE PICK: Take Miami. According to latest NBA trends, Miami is 20-6 ATS last 26 road games, 11-3 ATS last 14 vs. Eastern Conference, 7-3 ATS last 10 following an ATS win and 4-1 ATS last 5 playing on 1 days rest. Chicago is 2-6 ATS last 8 home games and 1 6 ATS last 7 when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game.

The Bulls are trying to go up 2-1 in this series but they awoke a sleeping giant when they beat Miami in Game 1. The Heat, who were obviously rusty after a long layoff in between series, dominated Chicago, winning by 37 at home. Chicago is tough at home but they are running out of healthy bodies with Luol Deng coming off an illness that cost him 15 pounds. Kirk Hinrich (calf) is out and Derrick Rose (knee) may never return. That puts a lot of pressure on a backcourt of Marco Belinelli, Nate Robinson and Jimmy Butler that is experiencing fatigue after playing more minutes than they are used to playing. Miami got some great production from Norris Cole (18 points) and Ray Allen (21) who shot a combined 12-of-16 from the floor. The Miami defense is the key and when they want to shut you down, they will. The Heat win and cover this game maybe not by 37 but by double digits.
