Sunday, March 10, finds the Toronto Raptors arriving at American Airlines Arena to face their host the Miami Heat in a mid-afternoon match. In their last game on Friday, the Raptors beat the New Orleans Pelicans 127-104. Similarly, the Heat also played and won Friday versus the Cleveland Cavaliers 126-110.
Last season, the Heat won two of three games while this year the Raptors have taken both meetings. The Heat hold the all-time record having bested the Raptors in 52 of their 84 matches.
The win by the Raptors in New Orleans increased Toronto’s road record to 20-12 making them the third team in the Association with 20 road wins (Bucks, Warriors).
Head Coach Nick Nurse continues to integrate the new additions into the lineup and system. Overall the effect has been positive but there are still hiccups.
Marc Gasol is platooning with Serge Ibaka in starts while Jeremy Lin is filling the backup point guard role until VanVleet returns.
In the match versus the Pelicans, Gasol started producing four points, an assist, and nine rebounds. Lin had a breakthrough game scoring 14 points and hit his first shots from deep as a Raptor.
Kawhi Leonard led the scoring with 31 points in just three quarters while Kyle Lowry recorded a triple-double of 13 points, 12 assists, and 11 rebounds.
Fred VanVleet remains out following surgery to repair a partial ligament tear in his thumb and had his hard cast switched to a soft cast this week with the expectation of returning at month end.
On Friday, the Heat got something they haven’t experienced much this season – an easy victory at home where they remain below .500 with a 15-18 record.
Eight different Heat players scored in double digits in the victory over the Cavaliers. Josh Richardson led the way with 20 points while Hassan Whiteside registered an 11 point, 11 rebound double-double off the bench.
Bam Adebayo (17), Justise Winslow (16), Kelly Olynyk (15), Rodney McGruder (13), Dwyane Wade (12) and Goran Dragic (11) each chipped in.
James Johnson is sidelined due to a slight shoulder AC sprain with no definitive return date.

Free Toronto Raptors vs. Miami Heat NBA Prediction:
These teams have waged some major wars against each other over recent seasons. Last year in the final game prior to the playoffs Toronto and Miami met and in the closing 90 seconds Fred VaVleet got injured on an aggressive foul by Bam Adebayo.
With the Heat fighting to claim a playoff seed, it should be another physical match.
