Last time the Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs met, Manu Ginobili and the Spurs blew out the Heat 125-95 in Miami's worst defeat of the season.
Tony Parker made a surprise comeback from injury to help lead the NBA-best Spurs to an embarrassing defeat for the Heat, who went on to drop two more games after that in a season-worst five-game loosing streak.
Since then, Miami has got back on track with two straight victories, both against Western Conference playoff teams in Los Angeles and Memphis.
The Heat will look to make it a third straight win over a Western Conference opponent with their second and final match-up against the NBA-leading Spurs that will be a redemption game for Miami.
The Heat are 0-9 against the league's top four teams and are looking to erase all the flack they have received for that unimpressive feat.
But, Miami will have to be on top of their game if they are going to knock off the Spurs this time around. Here is a breakdown of the pivotal rematch between the two title hopefuls.
