The Miami Heat are back at home on Wednesday where they will host the Toronto Raptors in what could be a trap game. The game starts at 7:30 PM and can be found on Sun Sports.

Why is this a potential trap game? I'm glad you asked. The Raptors, well, the Raptors aren't very good at basketball. They are just 22-40 on the year and might have lost interest in what has become a lost season. The Heat might be looking ahead to their matchup with the Chicago Bulls on Thursday, which would be a chance for them to show that they can beat the top team in the East, with or without Derrick Rose. If the Heat are already trying to look ahead towards that game, then the Raptors might be able to come into Miami and catch them napping.
