Miami Heat vs Toronto Raptors
April 13th, 2011
Sportsnet One - 8:00 PM EST

Well...this is it.

Not only is "it" the last game of the 2010-11 NBA Season for the Toronto Raptors, but also their last chance to lock down the third-worst record in the league, hopefully a record that translates into a top three draft pick.

Normally a game versus the Miami Heat would probably ensure an L to end this season, but with nothing now to play for, the Heat are expected to rest stars LeBron James and Dwyane Wade as well and play essentially their B team tonight.

And with the Washington Wizards only a game behind the Raptors in the loss department, Jay Triano may have to play a starting line-up of Solomon Alabi, Alexis Ajinca, Joey Dorsey, Julian Wright and Linas Kleiza to ensure they keep pace.

Luckily though the Wiz are facing the Cavs, and Toronto is still pretty banged up themselves.

No word on who's in and who's not at the time of writing this up, but I'll be live-blogging from the ACC's Foster Hewitt Media Gondola so will keep everyone abreast of any developments.

Go Heat!
