    Key Matchup of the Series

    Oh hello there Kyle Lowry. Nice to see you again.
    Leads the team with seven three-pointers made (7-for-22, .318) in the series vs. Miami.

    Dragic came back down to earth in Game 3, but we still need to stay on him. Though he is probably terrified of guarding Lowry going forward.
    In 2 games is averaging 20.3 points, 6.7 rebounds, 3.3 assists and shooting .381 (24-for-63) vs. Miami. Had a pretty solid Game 3, and needs to keep it going while looking to take the smart shots.

    DWade is pretty damn good ... too bad he's a huge douche.
    Carroll is averaging 12.3 points, 4.7 rebounds and shooting 46% (6-for-13) from three-point range in series vs. Miami. Needs to keep being the Junk Yard Dog that he is, absolutely LOVE the way he's been playing lately.

    Still f*cking hate Joe Johnsons face.
    Was a team high +13 and had a pretty strong Game 3, hitting 2 of 3 from downtown, and generally just being good in 35 minutes of action. Keep it up Pat Pat!

    Deng needs to continue to be a non-factor.
    Jonas Valanciunas recorded his sixth double-double (16 points, 12 rebounds) in Game 3 before leaving at the 8:53 mark of the third quarter with a sprained right ankle, and will not return for the rest of the Series.

    Bismack is going to need to reach deep down and pull out some really nice games for us. Bismack Biyombo started 22 games for Toronto in the regular-season, averaging 7.2 points and 12.2 rebounds. Toronto was 11-6 without Valanciunas (fractured left hand) earlier this season (Nov. 22-Dec. 26).

    No idea who Miami starts ... I'll leave Whitesides face there just to keep us hungry.
    Toronto Reserves Miami Reserves
    Cory Joseph, Terrence Ross, Norman Powell ... Luis Scola Bench struggled in Game 3, and with both Pat Pat and Biyombo moving to the Starting Lineup, the bench definitely takes a big hit .. needs to step up and play BIG going forward.

    Josh Richardson guarding and playing the Point is weird and crazy.
    Justice Winslow, Gerald Green, Josh Richardson, Udonis Haslem, Josh McRoberts
    Key to the Game
    We're 4-0 in games decided by 5 points or less ... so lets keep it close. Lol kidding...
    We're 6-0 when they hold their opponent under 100 points, and still 5-1 when they take care of the ball and win the TO battle. So take care of the ball, and play defense.
