Heat vs Raptors Prediction & Pick
Even though the Heat only lost by four points to the 76ers, they didn't do much to inspire their fans with optimism. Miami shot an atrocious 27.4% from the field and 16.1% from three-point range, proving that there's a lot they need to work on.
Considering that the Raptors held the Jazz to .367/.233/.818 shooting splits, it's clear that the Heat need a better effort on Friday. Unfortunately, it won't be easy with how well Toronto is playing, especially if the team can continue getting offense from Wilson, Ron Harper Jr. and Christian Koloko.
The Heat haven't done much to show that they can keep up with the Raptors, hence why I'm taking Toronto as the 1.5-point favorite at -115.
