Charlotte Hornets +5½ at Miami Heat: Miami has injury problems and Charlotte looked good in Game 1. So why not expect the Heat to bounce back? Well, every year, there is a theory that Miami coach Pat Riley works his team too hard. This is probably true again. Look for the Hornets to run past the Heat, or at least cover. Play Hornets +5½.

Minnesota Timberwolves +8 at San Antonio Spurs: Every time these teams play, it’s close. This game should be close again, but with San Antonio winning. Play Wolves +8.

Sunday’s record:1-3.

Playoff record:4-4.

Regular season record:126-128-5.
