Who’s Playing

Miami @ Toronto

Current Records: Miami 50-28; Toronto 45-32

What to Know

The Miami Heat might have tired legs after a contest yesterday as they head on the road against the Toronto Raptors at 7 p.m. ET April 3 at Scotiabank Arena. Both teams seek to continue their momentum from their previous wins.

Miami didn’t have too much trouble with the Chicago Bulls on the road this past Saturday as they won 127-109. The Heat relied on the efforts of small forward Jimmy Butler, who had 22 points and six assists along with seven rebounds, and point guard Kyle Lowry, who dropped a double-double on 19 points and ten dimes.

Meanwhile, Toronto strolled past the Orlando Magic with points to spare this past Friday, taking the game 102-89. The top scorers for the Raptors were point guard Fred VanVleet (19 points), power forward Scottie Barnes (19 points), and shooting guard Gary Trent Jr. (17 points). This also makes it three games in a row in which Fred VanVleet has had at least three steals.

Miami is expected to lose this next one by 3.5. However, those who like betting on the underdog should be happy to hear that they are 12-3 against the spread when expected to lose.

Miami was close but no cigar in the teams’ previous meeting in February as they fell 110-106 to Toronto. Can the Heat avenge their loss, or is history doomed to repeat itself? We’ll soon find out.
