The Miami Heat and the Los Angeles Lakers will renew acquaintances on Thursday night, with the Heat looking to start up a new ATS winning streak against Kobe Bryant and company.
Miami was on a 7-0 ATS run against the Lakers until Los Angeles beat them 93-83 as a 2.5-point home underdog when they last met last March. That was the fourth straight UNDER result between the teams, with the OVER/UNDER at 3-7 over their past 10 meetings.
The Lakers sport records of 17-21 and 16-22 ATS heading into this matchup, while the Heat sit at 25-12 and 18-19 ATS on the season. The OVER/UNDER records are 20-17-1 for the Lakers and 17-20 for the Heat. (Note: follow us on Twitter for line updates and injuries news).
LeBron James became the youngest player to hit 20,000 points last night, we wonder if he partied last night and will be tired against Kobe?
