The Miami Heat will travel to Air Canada Centre to play the Toronto Raptors in a critical game 5 NBA playoff game. The Heat and the Raptors have each won 2 games in this best of 7 series. The Heat are coming off a home win and have the momentum heading into this huge game 5. Catch every hoop, block, steal and rebound of this playoff game online here!
Every single game this late in the NBA season has huge ramifications. Because the first two road trips in this series were split, anything can happen in this first game back in Toronto. The Raptors won one and lost one during the first two home games of this series and then the Heat did the same thing back in Miami. After this game 5 in Toronto, the next will have to be played back in Miami.
The series may end in Toronto, if a game 7 is needed as the Raptors have home court advantage in this series even though that hasn’t mattered too much yet. This series may end up being all about Dwyane Wade, 34, and how he can or can not carry his Heat team. In the last two games, Dwyane has dropped almost 70 points combined. If he stays in a zone, Dwyane can easily be the driving force for the Heat and lead them into the Eastern Conference Finals where the Cleveland Cavaliers are waiting.
LeBron James, 31, and his Cavs needed 6 games to take down the Atlanta Hawks in their round 2 war and are resting while the Heat and Raptors wear each other down. Which ever team gets out of the East alive will likely have to deal with the league’s first ever unanimous MVP Stephen Curry, 28, and the reigning champion Golden State Warriors who look like a lock for another NBA finals appearance. Good luck gentlemen.
