- The HEAT and Raptors meet for the first of three matchups in the first half of the regular season.
- Last season, Miami won the season series, 2-1.
- The HEAT is 54-35 all-time versus Toronto during the regular season, including 32-15 in home games and 22-20 in road games.
What to watch for:
- Avery Bradley (Health and Safety Protocols), Jimmy Butler (Health and Safety Protocols) and Meyers Leonard (Left Shoulder; Strain) are out.
- Goran Dragic (Right Foot; Contusion) and Gabe Vincent (Right Knee; Soreness) are probable. Tyler Herro ( Neck; Spasms) is questionable.
- The HEAT have used nine different starting line-ups in their 12 games this season, as 13 of Miami’s 17 players have started at least one game, with only Haslem, Nunn, Silva and Strus yet to record a start.
- Precious Achiuwa has posted a double-double in each of his two starts this season, becoming just the second rookie in HEAT franchise history to record a double-double in his first two starts, joining Kurt Thomas who also did so in his first two starts on 12/10/95 and then 12/12/95. No HEAT rookie has accomplished the feat in their first three starts.
- Head Coach Erik Spoelstra recorded his 657th career win (572 regular season & 85 postseason) with the HEAT. The 657 total wins are the sixth-most by a head coach with a single franchise in NBA history.
