The Heat look to change their fortunes around while the Raptors try to extend their winning streak when the two teams meet on Friday night.
Miami has dropped 3 in a row, including their most recent blowout loss to Washington.
The Raptors are trending the other way, with 6 straight wins, including a 6 point win over the Celtics on Wednesday.
The Heat have hit a big speed bump as they’ve completely fallen off on both ends of the floor.
Miami has dropped 3 straight including losses to Oklahoma City, Milwaukee, and Washington. All three losses have come by double digits, with the lowest being at 12 to the Bucks.
The Heat have prided themselves on defense all season long, but it just hasn’t been there during this slide as they’ve allowed 99,91, and 106. Offensively, it’s been the same story. Miami has scored 74, 79, and 87 points in the losses.
Miami will be on the road for the next 4, a place where they’ve been 8-11 SU this season.
The Raptors have endured 6 very winnable games and they did what good teams do, win games they’re supposed to win.
The Raptors have rattled off 6 straight wins and now find themselves in sole possession of 2nd place in the Eastern Conference, just 3.0 games off the pace of Cleveland.
Toronto is in the middle of a 7 game home stand as they’ve already won 2 of them, but things get much tougher for them coming up. They’ll take on Miami Thursday and follow that up with visits from the Clippers, Wizards, Knicks, and Pistons to finish off the month.
Things bode well for the Raptors with this current home stand as they have been a solid bet in Canada. Toronto has gone 13-6 SU in 19 home games and they allow just 97.9 points per home game

Free NBA Prediction:
Things will certainly be much tougher on the Raptors with this upcoming string of tough teams starting with the Heat here.
With Miami getting a day off in between their Wednesday blowout loss, they should be ready for this one. However, the Raptors are playing too well on both sides of the ball. Combine that with them having home court and they should be able to come away with a win here.
