Raptors vs Heat


  • Preview

The Toronto Raptors are taking on the Miami Heat. The Toronto Raptors are 16-16 after a loss to the Philadelphia 76ers as they went 4-1 in their last five games. The Miami Heat have advanced to 14-17 after three straight wins, with their most recent coming against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The Toronto Raptors have seemingly put it all together now with their much-improved play compared to their struggles early in the season. The Raptors have an elite defense but Kyle Lowery is dealing with a thumb injury but it appears he'll play.

The Miami Heat have made their impact on the defensive end as they are only averaging 106.9 points on the offensive end which is among some of the lowest in the league. The Miami Heat might have Gordon Dragic and Tyler Herro return against the Raptors.

The Miami Heat have been consistently picking up wins but they have yet to beat a team above .500 in their recent games aside from the Lakers who were without arguably their best player in AD. The Raptors have wins over the 76ers and Milwaukee Bucks over the last couple of weeks. With how the Raptors have been playing I don't see an easy path to victory for the Heat. This game is gonna be a grind with the defenses present so it should be close throughout as neither team is really able to pull apart.
