NBA FREE PICK: Take San Antonio. According to latest NBA trends, the Spurs are 6-1 against the spread in their last seven road games and 5-1 ATS in their last six games overall. The Spurs swept Memphis so they haven't played since May 27. Miami played on Monday night, as they beat the Pacers 99-76. But they struggled with the Pacers' size in that series, didn't rebound well and were inconsistent from the perimeter. This will be a different type of series as Indiana's guard play was subpar and the Spurs are a much more complete team. Tony Parker has been the second-best player in the postseason after LeBron James. Parker is averaging 23 points and 7.2 assists in the playoffs, while Tim Duncan is averaging 17.8 points and 9.2 rebounds. Chris Bosh finally showed up in Game 7 but has struggled in most of the playoffs, averaging around 12 points per game. The Spurs will have over a week to prepare for James and the rest of the Heat with the best coach in the game in Gregg Popovich. The Heat might be more athletic but the Spurs are the fresher team and Parker will dictate the pace of the game.
