MIA vs PHI Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Miami Heat will be looking to end a four-game skid when they host supremely talented Philadelphia 76ers in a regular season NBA match at AmericanAirlines Arena, in Downtown Miami, on Wednesday morning (IST).
Toronto Raptors knows that the playoffs will be a completely different animal. The regular season may have its own ups and downs, but it’s the post-season which gets the best out of certain players and the team as a whole.
In Miami Heat, Raptors faced a team which was desperate for a win, just to keep their dwindling hopes of making into the playoffs alive.
As soon as the match started, it was clear which tea, wanted the win most. It was Heat. For they ripped the hosts apart with their aggression and precision, taking a double-digit lead behind a 15-2 run in the second quarter.
Heat took their lead into the 3rd quarter and were ahead until Dwyane Wade’s deflected pass was intervened by Norman Powell, who passed to Danny Green for a simple Basket.
Miami made too many mistakes and allowed the Raptors far too many easy baskets.
The match went to the overtime and Raptors won it 14-6 to win the match 117-109 at Scotiabank Arena.
With the loss, Heat remained outside the playoff spots but Detroit Pistons’ 91-104 loss to Charlotte Hornets keep the door ajar.
Philadelphia 76ers, on the other hand, have no such issues as they have already secured their seat in the post-season.
For Sixers, it’s all about keeping the players fit and healthy for the playoffs. Jimmy Butler continues to be on the sidelines due to back tightness. He missed 76ers’ 116-96 win over Chicago Bulls as well.
But Joel Embiid returned to the line-up and dropped another double-double. He ended the match with 20 points and 10 rebounds.
With the win, 76ers improved their regular season record to 50-30.
Regular Season Record-
Miami Heat: W-38, L-42
Philadelphia 76ers: W-50, L-30
Players to watch out for:
Dwyane Wade – He is in phenomenal form scoring points at an incredible rate. This is his last season for he has already announced that the current campaign would be his last. For sure, an era will be ending as soon as this season ends. for Dwyane Wade is set to retire at the end of this campaign. But his numbers are pretty good, and it doesn’t look like that he is a player who is past his best. The 37-year-old is averaging 17.5 points per game in the last 10 matches.
Goran Dragic – has been limited to just 33 games due to injury, but the 32-year-old has been one of the best players for Heat. he is averaging 14.5 points per game.
Joel Embiid – He had another monster game scoring 20 points and 10 rebounds against Chicago Bulls. He is Sixers’ best player this season by some margin. The 25-year-old Center is stacking up 27.3 points per game and 13.7 rebounds per game this season.
Tobias Harris – Perhaps the last piece of the jigsaw for Sixers. Ever since he joined Philadelphia from Los Angeles Clippers, this team is believed to go some distance in the post-season. For his part, the 26-year-old small forward is racking up 20.2 points per game.

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Miami Heat are on a four-game losing streak heading into this match. This is a very important game for Heat for a loss would definitely rule them out from the playoffs reckoning.
But we think, in 76ers, the opponents are too big and a win for the visitors is our call.
