The Raptors have gone under in eight of their last 10 games. They've struggled to score as point guard Kyle Lowry and shooting guard DeMar DeRozan really struggled against Indiana, yet they won the series on defense. DeRozan was 10-for-32 from the floor in Game 7. Having Hassan Whiteside in the middle as helped Miami’s cause on defense. They went under in five straight games against the Hornets, scoring over 100 points just one time.
