MIAMI -- When the Toronto Raptors visit the Miami Heat on Thursday night, it will be a possible first-round playoff preview.
Each team has 11 games remaining on its schedule, so there's a lot that has yet to be decided. But it is certainly conceivable that the Raptors (42-29) and Heat (35-36) could meet up in a playoff rematch. The Raptors eliminated Miami in last year's Eastern Conference semifinals, 4-3.
If a rematch does happen, the most likely scenario would be Toronto securing the No. 3 seed and Miami elevating itself to No. 6.
