MIAMI - Season Results
 Team StatsOpp Stats
8/12/2020*OKLAHOMA CITY              
TORONTO: LAST SEASON: 58-24, won NBA Finals.
COACH: Nick Nurse (second season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Kyle Lowry (14.2 ppg, 8.7 apg), G Norman Powell (8.6 ppg), F OG Anunoby (7.0 ppg), F Pascal Siakam (16.9 ppg), C Marc Gasol (15.7 ppg, 8.6 rpg).
KEY LOSSES: F Kawhi Leonard, G Danny Green
KEY ADDITIONS: F Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, F Stanley Johnson, G Matt Thomas
PLAYERS TO WATCH: A runaway winner of the NBA's Most Improved Player Award last season, Siakam doesn't look likely to rest on his laurels. Nurse said he's seen more maturity and calmness in Siakam this fall, something new for a player whose game was previously all about speed and energy. Thomas has never played in the NBA, but the former Iowa State star shot 48.1% (116 for 241) from 3-point range in helping Spain's Valencia Basket capture the 2019 EuroCup title.
OUTLOOK: The defending champions lost their best player when Leonard left for the Clippers, and took another hit when Green signed with the Lakers. While those departures may have dimmed Toronto's hopes of repeating, the Raptors aren't lottery-bound either. Lowry has made five straight All-Star teams, Gasol is a defensive force in the paint, and there's talent on the bench in guard Fred VanVleet and big man Serge Ibaka. Expect the Raptors to earn a top-four seed in a balanced Eastern Conference.

Because of this important information, no power rating or computer score edges are posted for this game.

MIAMI: LAST SEASON: 39-43, finished in 10th place in Eastern Conference.
COACH: Erik Spoelstra (12th season, 523-363).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Justise Winslow (12.6 ppg), G Dion Waiters (12.0), G Jimmy Butler (18.7 with Minnesota and Philadelphia), F Kelly Olynyk (10.0), C Bam Adebayo (8.9).
KEY LOSSES: G Dwyane Wade, G Josh Richardson, C Hassan Whiteside, G Rodney McGruder.
KEY ADDITIONS: Butler, G Tyler Herro, F-C Meyers Leonard.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Butler gets a team to call his own, and assumes the role of locker-room leader in the place of Wade ' who retired after 16 seasons, most of them with Miami. The Heat are hoping for healthier years from Waiters and PG Goran Dragic, after both missed about half of last season. Herro, the No. 13 pick in this year's draft, had a strong summer league and followed that up with big numbers in the preseason so he'll clearly be in the mix somewhere. Adebayo enters his first full year as the starting center, a job he won down the stretch last season, and will get help from fellow bigs Olynyk and Leonard. Winslow wants to be a leader for the group, but has missed 94 games in the last three seasons.
OUTLOOK: The Heat haven't won a playoff series since 2016 and are only 124-122 over the last three seasons, yet believe they can get back into more of a postseason-contender role ' even without Wade, who was the team's best player last season. Getting Butler was a major boost and he'll unquestionably be the key to everything Miami does, though he won't be asked to carry the load by himself. Defense wasn't the problem for Miami last season after the Heat finished No. 2 in the league in points allowed; the biggest issue was inconsistent offense, which figures to get better.
Raptors, Heat look to continue strong restarts

The Miami Heat and Toronto Raptors both feel good about their potential for making a deep playoff run entering Monday's meeting near Orlando.

Both franchises pride themselves on playing stingy defensive and cohesive offense.

Toronto entered the restart with a fully healthy rotation for the first time since the early days of the season. The defending NBA champions are among the favorites to reach the Eastern Conference Finals against the Milwaukee Bucks in what would be a rematch of their 2019 series.

Miami, led by wing Jimmy Butler and his Type-A personality, may have what it takes to pull some surprises. The famed "Heat Culture" seems like a perfect fit for the NBA bubble because this is a serious-minded team that does a great job of eliminating distractions.

That Heat mindset was in evidence on Saturday night as Miami shut down the Denver Nuggets, 125-105.

"We're locked in defensively," Heat center Bam Adebayo said. "We played a lot harder in the second half."

The Raptors, who beat the Los Angeles Lakers 107-92 on Saturday, have been seemingly overlooked by numerous NBA observers. The source of that so-called disrespect stems from forward Kawhi Leonard's decision to bolt from Toronto after leading the Raptors to the 2019 NBA title.

That left the Raptors without a true superstar -- not that it bothers Toronto coach Nick Nurse.

"I don't think anybody's going to pay too much attention to us," Nurse said. "But that's OK. We know we're tough to beat, and I don't think we've reached our ceiling yet."

Toronto is second in the NBA in steals and second in fewest points allowed in the paint.

Miami is second in the NBA in fewest points allowed on fast breaks and tied for second in defensive rebound percentage.

The Raptors are led in scoring by forward Pascal Siakam, who was named the NBA's Most Improved Player last season when he averaged 16.9 points. This season, the fourth-year pro is averaging 23.5 points, although he had a poor shooting performance Saturday night against the Lakers (5 of 17).

Raptors veteran point guard Kyle Lowry leads the team in assists (7.6) and is second in scoring (20.0). He was impressive against the Lakers with 33 points.

The rest of Toronto's starting lineup includes shooting guard Fred VanVleet (17.5 points, team-high 1.9 steals); small forward OG Anunoby (10.9 points); and 7-1 veteran center Marc Gasol (7.6 points, 6.4 rebounds). Guard Norman Powell (16.2 points) and big man Serge Ibaka (team-high 8.2 rebounds) are the key reserves.

Miami, which is 2-0 against the Raptors this season, started Adebayo, Butler and Jae Crowder in its frontcourt on Friday. Rookie point guard Kendrick Nunn and sharp-shooting Duncan Robinson started in the backcourt.

But the Heat -- a team with excellent depth -- got 20 points, all in the fourth quarter, from backup center Kelly Olynyk, who made 8-of-11 shots from the floor, including 4-of-6 on 3-pointers.

Miami's bench also includes point guard Goran Dragic, a 2018 All-Star; shooting guard Tyler Herro, Miami's standout first-round pick; and veteran wing Andre Iguodala, who already has won three NBA titles and an Olympic gold medal.

Butler leads Miami in scoring (20.3), assists (6.1) and steals (1.7). Adebayo leads the Heat in rebounds (10.5) and blocks (1.3). Secondary scoring comes from Adebayo (16.3); Dragic (16.0) and Nunn (15.6).
