Who’s Playing

Toronto @ Miami

Current Records: Toronto 23-23; Miami 32-17

What to Know

The Miami Heat are getting right back to it as they host the Toronto Raptors at 8 p.m. ET Jan. 29 at FTX Arena. Miami is the slight favorite, but fans of both teams should be in for an exciting matchup likely to go down to the wire.

The Heat beat the Los Angeles Clippers 121-114 this past Friday. It was another big night for Miami’s small forward Jimmy Butler, who had 26 points and nine assists in addition to six rebounds.

Meanwhile, Toronto was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap this past Wednesday as they fell 111-105 to the Chicago Bulls. Toronto’s defeat shouldn’t obscure the performances of small forward OG Anunoby, who had 23 points along with five boards, and shooting guard Gary Trent Jr., who shot 6-for-10 from downtown and finished with 32 points.

Miami is now 32-17 while the Raptors sit at 23-23. A couple numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: The Heat rank fourth in the league when it comes to steals given up per game, with only 7.2 on average. But Toronto comes into the contest boasting the third most steals per game in the league at 9.17. Ball control might end up being a major factor in this one.
