  • Game 67 of 82: The Toronto Raptors @ Miami Heat, 3:30 PM Eastern, Sportsnet

    The 47-19 2nd seed Raptors visit the 8th seed 31-34 Miami Heat. The Heat have rattled off 5 of 6 wins which began with a Dwyane Wade miracle winner over Golden State. They will be a hungry bunch, eager to get that 8th seed and are holding off Orlando and Charlotte just behind them.

    OUT: Fred Van Vleet, Toronto (thumb), Kawhi Leonard, Toronto (load management)

    Your starting lineups guess:
    Kyle Lowry -- Josh Richardson
    Danny Green -- Dion Waiters
    OG Anunoby -- Justice Wiinslow
    Pascal Siakam -- Kelly Olynyk
    Marc Gasol -- Bam Adebayo


    Our Snickers Key Matchup (SNICKKAS!!):

    P Skills




    VS

    Kelly "Eh" Olynyk



    Two young, energy forwards. One gives his all for Team Canada, the other gives his all for Canada's team.

    Should be a good game!
    It's Klaw Season. Time to hunt.

      Like Detroit, the Heat are fighting for a play-off spot. This will be a good play-off atmosphere type game where having Kawhi in the line-up would push this team to be better. If Kawhi plays Monday against Cavs (I suspect he will not), but if he does, I seriously question the logic of sitting him against competitive teams like Detroit and Miami, that would push the Raptors to become better vs playing against inferior teams (NO, CLE) out of the playoffs where the Raptor team MO this year is to play to the level of the competition. smh

          So I met Arash Madani at a hole in the wall pub last night and asked him what he thought about the raptors. He seemed almost offended that I asked and was like "what, do you expect Kawhi and Lowry to perform in the playoffs?" I was like uhh have you seen Kawhi in the playoffs before? And he started going off about the load management and how he will not play hard for this team and is just waiting to leave. The guy was clearly way out of touch with what is going on with the raps. I was honestly kind of shocked to hear his attitude coming from someone whose profession it is to cover sports in Toronto.

              Could be a first round opponent here. Vegas only favouring us by 1pt today. On the road without Kawhi but that seems disrespectful.

              Dragic should be back. Wade is still good. They play tough defense. Hopefully we grind out a victory. Bench will be key. Need to see Lin hit some big 3's again.

                Might be late to the party on this announcement but it seems Ingram has blood clots and will be out the rest of the year. Man I hope his career isn't going to end shortly like Bosh's did. Maybe the situation isn't the same as Bosh's case.. but that still really sucks.

                With LA when it rains it pours. Those guys are so unlucky. Without Ingram healthy they lose another potential trade chip in an Anthony Davis trade.

                  ..Then we're screwed... j/k but it will be curious to see if they go back to all bench without Leonard or if they try to anchor the bench with 1 or 2 of Lowry/Green/Siakam/Gasol on the in between lineups

                    Glad OG's play has been coming around. Really hope he does get a lot of run with the starters today.

                    Not a crazy question: should the Lakers trade Lebron?

                      Just checking to see if the time stamp has changed or if it is correct for the first time in 6 months.
                      Edit :It works unlike Kawhi every other game.

                        Dog days of the season or frustration with the new forum? This is the 12th post (not 12th page, 12th post) less than 3 hours before game time.

                            Toronto sports reporters are pretty lame, tbh. I remember it took like 5 months before a reporter asked Lowry the most obvious question: what is your relationship with Masai Ujiri like these day? And predictably, it wasn't a Toronto sports reporter - it was Rachel Nichols of ESPN. Same thing with load management. You are a professional sports reporter.... you are in a privileged position to get the right answers. Just directly ask Kawhi the obvious question(s): are you healthy enough to play every game and would you play if it were your choice alone?

                            Instead, all we get are these weak-ass, bitching and moaning whiny comments and articles from so-called professionals who have privileged access and who are supposedly highly trained in the art of asking questions and getting to the essence of the issues at hand.

                              I don't watch hockey or read about it. Does the Toronto media do a better job in the NHL comparied to NBA?
