Miami Heat vs Toronto
Miami against Toronto on the final day of regular season. Well for me the situation is pretty clear. IMO the Heat won't be too eager to win this game. If they win it, Miami Heat could end as No.6 on the East and seems no one want to be now on that position.
Namely, as sixth best, you will need to face in the first playoff round either 76ers either Cleveland. 76ers are in great form while as for Cleveland, of course they will look way different when the postseason starts, so don't be fooled by their regular season performance.
So, both, Philadelphia and Cleveland seems as tougher opponents than the No.1 Toronto and especially tougher than the No.2 Boston who is heavily weakened late in the season with Irving absence.
After all, such opinion (better to be No.7 or No. 8 than No.6), is not only my opinion but seems everyone in Miami share such opinion. This team was tanking some games lately exactly from the reason to be in position like they are now. If you had a chance to watch their game vs Oklahoma ( embarrassing 4th quarter) then you probably agree with me, Miami is not exactly motivated to win tonight.
Toronto probably without special motivation too but if I am right, unlike Miami, the Raptors will win if they have a chance no matter who would be on the court for them.
