Raptors vs Heat Pick: Wednesday, February 24th

Raptors vs Heat Pick: Wednesday, February 24th: The Raptors are on the 2nd half of a back-to-back after losing 109-102 at home to the Sixers last night. The loss snapped their four-game winning streak. They were outscored 37-18 in the first quarter. Norm Powell continued his excellent play, scoring 24 points, with 6 assists and 4 boards, and he has played very well with Kyle Lowry out with a sprained thumb. There was a thought that Lowry might return for the Sixers game, but he sat out. Lowry is listed as questionable to go tonight. The small ball tactics have provided dividends for the Raps. Their frontcourt has been Siakam, Bembry, and Anonoby, and it’s been working. Baynes and Boucher have been coming off the bench. Siakam played 42 minutes and VanVleet 37, while Norman Powell played 35 minutes.
