Content designed and provided by SportSight

Third in the Eastern Conference with 27 wins and 16 losses on the clock; the Heat are in great shape with 7 wins in their last 10 games; but must start again after receiving the loss in front of their home crowd against Philadelphia (98- 109) at night from Saturday to Sunday. However; Toronto could be a difficult rival: eighth; the Raptors are in a good dynamic and will want to continue after their victory against Milwaukee (96-103). Follow this NBA game tonight at 01:30.

Miami Heat: news and form

The Florida franchise is in a very good dynamic and has won 9 of its last 12 games; which allows it to move up in the standings to be just one victory behind leader Chicago. The Heat will still be scrutinized tonight after their loss to the Sixers and will want to send a signal to their competitors by moving on. Miami is particularly comfortable at home with 13 wins in 18 games and will want to perfect this record thanks above all to its defensive solidity; while with an average of 104.3 points conceded per game the Heat are the 4th defense in the league.

Miami: players to watch

Deprived of several captains; such as Bam Adebayo or Kyle Lowry; Miami will want to count on the return of Jimmy Butler for this match; he who has returned to the starting lineup for 2 games and continues with a mediocre performance against Philadelphia with 8 points; 5 rebounds and 9 assists. Tyler Herro should also be there: leader in scoring during the absence of Butler and Adebayo with an average of 20.6 points this season; the young leader also compiles 4.9 rebounds and 4.1 assists and will want to be decisive in this game .

Toronto Raptors: news and form

The Raptors are on the upswing this season and look very inconsistent with 21 wins and 19 losses on the clock. Currently in a good phase; the Canadian franchise maintains 7 successes in 10 games and an important victory against Milwaukee (96-103) on the night from Saturday to Sunday. Currently 8th; Toronto has a chance to catch 7th Charlotte with a win early by winning tonight; but the Top 6 still seems a long way off while 6th Cleveland won 3 more games.

Toronto: Players to Watch

Fred VanVleet has been in great shape lately and has contributed greatly to the good performances of the Raptors: the American player is averaging 27.7 points in his last 10 games; notably with a very solid triple-double against the Jazz (37 points; 10 rebounds; 10 assists) last week. Entered due to injury last Friday against the Pistons; Pascalm Siakam will also want to have an impact; while in 25 games he has 21.1 points; 8.5 rebounds and 4.8 assists.

Five Majors:

  • Lowry

Bolstered by the return of Jimmy Butler from injury; the Heat should bounce back long after their loss to the Sixers and take over from the Raptors; who still can’t let him go easily. However; it seems logical to see Miami win; especially at home.

Both teams are effective defensively this season and therefore we should see a game that is not very offensive. Therefore; a point total of less than 211.5 seems entirely possible.
