The Heat are playing well but 8 points is a lot to lay against a team that is hot at the betting window. The Kings have covered the spread in four straight games and are 5-1-1 against the number in their last seven games playing on one day of rest. They're 4-1 ATS in their last five games coming off a win and 4-0 ATS in their last four games when their opponent allows 100 points or more in its previous game as well.

Rajon Rondo (toe, shoulder, thumb) is probable for tonight's game and will likely sit out Saturday against the Nuggets. Darren Collison will likely come off the bench with Seth Curry getting another start tonight as well. Unfortunately for the Kings, DeMarcus Cousins will be suspended for tonight after picking up his 16th technical foul on Wednesday. But the Kings should have enough to cover with Rondo in the lineup.
