Game Preview: Heat take on Raptors at home in afternoon matchup

New, comments

The Heat look to continue their winning ways against a Kawhi Leonard-less Raptors team.

Game Story:

The Heat are on a roll and currently in playoff contention, but they’ll face a big challenge tonight against the 2nd place Raptors. They’ll get a little bit of a breather as Kawhi Leonard sits for load management, but this Raptors team is dangerous even without their superstar. The Heat have been a lot better at home lately, and they’ll need to continue that level of play over the final stretch of the season in order to sustain their playoff position, or move up in the seedlings.

Probable Starters:

Heat: Justise Winslow, Dion Waiters, Josh Richardson, Kelly Olynyk, Bam Adebayo

Raptors: Danny Green, Pascal Siakam, Marc Gasol, Jeremy Lin, Kyle Lowry
