NBA FREE PICK: Take Miami. According to latest NBA trends, Portland is 16-34-1 ATS in their last 51 after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game,  2-6 ATS in their last 8 games following a S.U. loss, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 0-6-1 ATS in their last 7 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game. Miami is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Western Conference and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 vs. NBA Northwest.

Portland has lost three straight and is just 8-18 SU on the road this year. They fell at lowly Orlando, 110-104, giving 3 on Sunday. Miami has won five straight including a 107-97 win over the Lakers on Sunday, giving 9. Lebron James has become the third player to ever score at least 30 points while shooting over 60 percent in five consecutive games. The Heat are 5-0 during James' torrid stretch and will be seeking a season-high sixth consecutive win against a Portland squad that has won its last four trips to Miami. The Blazers lost to an Orlando team that had dropped 12 straight. It shows you how bad Portland has been on the road. They've given up an average of 111 points per game during their three-game losing streak. James might remember the last time he played against Portland on Jan. 10, he scored just 15 points in Miami's 92-90 loss - the only time this season he's been held under 20 points. He's averaging 31 points and shooting a scorching 71.4 percent during his five-game spree. During the last eight games, James has connected on 16 of 28 3-point attempts. Dwyane Wade is averaging 24.8 points in the last five games. Expect Miami to remember the last loss and dominate this game.
