Game Story:

The Heat aren’t in a good place right now. After dropping Friday’s game at the last second, they’ve made their journey to the playoffs that much harder. Today they face a Raptors squad that’s gearing up for a long playoff run, but still have no intention of sitting their starters. For the Heat to stay alive, they need their final three games. That final push begins here.

Probable Starters:

Miami: Goran Dragic, Dion Waiters, Derrick Jones Jr., Kelly Olynyk, Bam Adebayo

Toronto: Kawhi Leonard, Pascal Siakam, Marc Gasol, Danny Green, Kyle Lowry
