Wednesday, April 11 finds the Toronto Raptors arriving at American Airlines Arena to face their host the Miami Heat. In their last game the Raptors beat the Detroit Pistons. Similarly, the Heat also played Monday as they hosted the OKC Thunder in a match they lost.
Last season, the Raptors won three of four games while this year the teams have split their initial two games. The Heat hold the all-time record having bested the Raptors in 51 of their 81 matches.
Over a month ago the Raptors became the first squad to clinch a playoff berth, so it might be understandable why they took their foot off the gas a little. Following back to back losses to the Cavaliers and Celtics the Raptors kick started their defense.
What transpired a four game win streak in which the Raptors haven’t allowed only the Magic to score over 100 points (101) with an average of 87.5 opponent points per game.
There is an argument to be made the Dinos didn’t want to share any trade secrets with Cleveland or Boston, who they presumed would be their Eastern Conference opponent should they reach that round.
But, as sports is wont to do, things changed quickly with Kyrie Irving lost for the postseason and the Sixers overtaking the Cavaliers to claim third for the moment. Should they remain in this position it would mean a second round meeting between the squads.
Other than Lucas Nogueira (hamstring tightness) and Fred VanVleet (lower back stiffness) the Raptors intend to play everyone in Miami as they attempt to reach 60 wins for the first time in franchise history.
The Heat held a 23-5 point lead over the Thunder early in the game Monday, but relinquished the lead and lost the game. Subsequently OKC clinched their playoff ticket via the win.
It’s hard to decipher if Miami is purposely losing in an attempt to land in the seventh seed to face the injury riddled Heat or if they are simply losing at the worst time.
The squad needs to be cautious because they can still fall into the eighth seed and what’s more the Celtics are still a solid squad full of youthful talent and the league’s best defense.
Miami have a fully healthy roster aside from Dion Waiters (ankle) who is lost for the season.
