NBA FREE PICK: Take Miami. According to latest NBA trends, Chicago is 2-5 ATS last 7 overall, 1-4 ATS last 5 Wednesday games and 1-4 ATS last 5 in series. Miami is 17-5 ATS last 22 overall, 21-7-1 ATS last 29 Conference semifinal games and 8-2 ATS last 10 following a SU win of more than 10 points.  

This series is over. The only question is whether Miami will have mercy on Chicago and that's not likely considering the bad blood this series. Not team has even won four games at Miami in the same season and Chicago, who has won two, would have to win Game 5 and Game 7 to make an improbable comeback. They have to do with a team that is fatigued after playing so many minutes due to injuries and a coach who refuses to play certain players. The starting lineup went a combined 11-of-50 from the field in game 4 (Nate Robinson went 0-for-12). If the Heat win, they'll have at least six days of rest as the Conference finals are scheduled to start May 20 or May 22. They'll win with ease.
