Miami Heat (30-26) at Toronto Raptors (39-16)

NBA: Tuesday, February 13, 2018, at 7:00 p.m. ET

The Miami Heat travel to Air Canada Centre to take on the Toronto Raptors for a Tuesday night contest. On Jan. 9, the Heat beat the Raptors 90-89. Goran Dragic led the Heat with 24 points and 12 rebounds. Miami has lost five of their last six games. The Heat have been reliant on their defense which ranks third (101.1 ppg). Dragic leads Miami as he is putting up 17.2 points and 4.8 assists. Toronto has won five straight games. The Raptors are third in the league in scoring (111.6 ppg), and seventh in defense (103.3 ppg). DeMar DeRozan (23.9 ppg), and Kyle Lowry (16.4 ppg) lead the Raptors offense. Can Dragic lead Miami to victory?

Heat top Bucks in low-scoring affair

On Friday night, the Miami Heat beat the Milwaukee Bucks 91-85. Miami used a 30-8 third quarter to take command of the game. Tyler Johnson led the Heat with 19 points and six rebounds. The game marked the return of Dwyane Wade in a Heat uniform. Wade had three points in 22 minutes, but he made some big defensive plays. Milwaukee shot 42 percent from the field and Miami shot 36 percent. The Heat out-rebounded the Bucks 51-37 in the contest. Hassan Whiteside wound up with 12 points and 16 rebounds in the win. Josh Richardson added 16 points on 6-of-12 shooting. The Bucks committed 18 turnovers and the Heat had 16.

Raptors blow by Hornets

The Toronto Raptors beat the Charlotte Hornets 123-103 on Sunday afternoon. Toronto used a 61-48 second half to take command of the game. DeMar DeRozan led the Raptors with 25 points and eight assists. Jonas Valanciunas went for 21 points and nine rebounds in 24 minutes. The Raptors shot 56 percent from the field and the Hornets shot 43 percent. Charlotte out-rebounded Toronto 42-40 in the contest. CJ Miles finished with 24 points on 6-of-9 from 3-point range in 18 minutes. Miles is averaging 18.3 points in 17.7 minutes over the last three games. Kyle Lowry added 12 points and seven assists. Each team committed 13 turnovers in the game.

Trends:

The Miami Heat are:

  • 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following an ATS win.
  • 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. NBA Atlantic.

The Toronto Raptors are:

  • 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following an ATS win.
  • 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a straight up win of more than 10 points.
  • 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall.

Miami has the edge with Whiteside and their depth but it won’t be enough. The Heat have struggled over the last two weeks, and I expect them to struggle in this one. Look for DeRozan to lead Toronto to a revenge win against Miami.

The pick: Toronto
