The Raptors square off against the Heat in this Eastern Conference Showdown.
This is the third meeting of the season between the two teams.
The Raptors come into this game with 3 wins in a row including two over fellow Eastern Conference playoff contenders the Pacers and Bulls.
DeMar DeRozan was unstoppable against Chicago in the two point victory, scoring 42 points on a staggering 17-38 from the floor.
DeRozan is one of the league leaders in points per game and should have another good game in this one.
Serge Ibaka put up big numbers against the Bulls, scoring 16 points and pulling in 6 rebounds. This game expect him to face Hassan Whiteside in key stretches on the offensive end, so his scoring numbers will be down but I expect 8 rebounds.
After struggling in the previous two games Myles Turner attacked the Utah frontcourt all night on Monday.
He is suspended for this game after getting into a fight with Robin Lopez on Tuesday night, so the Raptors front court will be prone to the heat feeding Whiteside in the paint.
Hassan Whiteside is a double-double machine. He impacts the game on both ends of the floor and is one of the most dominant big men in the NBA.
He scored 23 points and grabbed 14 rebounds against the Suns on Tuesday night, and should continue to do more of the same against the Raptors front line without Ibaka in the post.
Goran Dragic has quietly been very consistent for Miami, scoring 15 or more points in 10 straight games.
His assists haven’t been there in the last two matchups, with just 5 total, but Dragic is capable of making any point guard look bad on defense.
