The Miami Heat have been sitting around since sweeping the Charlotte Bobcats in the first round of the NBA playoffs, watching for who would emerge from the series between the Brooklyn Nets and the Toronto Raptors.
Who would the Heat rather play? Well, Miami has won the last 15 games against Toronto, having never lost to the Raptors in the Big 3 era. However, Miami lost all four games to the Brooklyn Nets this season.
But let’s be real, there is a reason the Heat executive suite has been stocked with Canadian Club for the weekend, a reason Canadian bacon and Tim Hortons will be featured at the player brunch Sunday, a reason Spoelstra will flip a loonie to decide which team defends which basket during Sunday practice.

Sunday, the Heat will find out who they will face in the second round that starts on Tuesday. The Nets and Raptors tip off Game 7 Sunday at 1 p.m. ET in Toronto.
