Another thrilling Eastern Conference game is scheduled for Wednesday in the NBA, featuring the Toronto Raptors and the Miami Heat. Set to start at 7:30 pm Eastern Time at the Scotiabank Arena. Toronto has a 15-25 record overall, with a 9-10 record at home. On the other hand, Miami holds a 24-16 record overall, with a 12-9 record on the road. In their recent encounters, the Raptors have emerged victorious in 3 out of the last 4 meetings against the Heat.


The Toronto Raptors suffered a 105-96 defeat against the Boston Celtics last Monday. RJ Barrett, showcased his skills with an impressive performance of 24 points, 9 rebounds, and 4 assists. Additionally, Immanuel Quickley who was acquired in the trade involving OG Anunoby and the Knicks, contributed with 21 points, 6 rebounds, and 3 assists.


Toronto’s shooting accuracy was subpar, as they only managed to convert 40% of their field goal attempts and struggled immensely from deep, making a mere 4 out of 32 total attempts. This abysmal shooting display marked the Raptors’ worst performance from beyond the arc this season.



As for the other side, the Heat managed to achieve a win on Monday, although it required extra time to complete the task. They emerged victorious with a narrow 96-95 win against the Brooklyn Nets. Jimmy Butler played a significant role in the Heat’s triumph, contributing 31 points and 5 rebounds to their success.


Butler made a triumphant return to professional play after being sidelined for over 2 weeks due to a foot injury. Despite his absence, he showcased no signs of being physically limited, as he played a full 40 minutes for his side.


Overall the Heat is a heavy favorite this time around, with the Raptors only true potential being centered around the rim.
