"The Coach's" 3-Game All Inclusive NBA Report
(NBA) Toronto vs. Miami, 04/11/2015 3:30 PM, Score: 107 - 104
Point Spread: -3.00 | -110.00 Miami (Home)
Result: Loss
The Miami Heat will host the Toronto Raptors tonight, and this is a game that the Heat absolutely need to win in order to keep their playoff hopes alive. The Raptors have cooled off after a hot start to the season, but are already assured of a playoff spot. I expect to see the Heat bounce back with a win tonight.

Here are my keys to the game:

1. Home Cookin' - The Heat have won five straight home meetings with Toronto, and the Raptors have failed to cover in six of the last eight in this series.

2. Situational/Motivational - Dwyane Wade still believes in his teammates, and he says they are going to fight to the bitter end: "Individually, each guy in here at some point has been told they're not good enough, has been told they can't do it," Wade said. "So individually, everyone has that mentality. ... That's the reason guys haven't packed it up and said 'This season's over.'"

3. X-Factor - The Raptors could be a little fatigued coming off a win over Orlando last night. The Raptors are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 0 days rest.

Selection: This is a play on the Miami Heat (.(*8)
