Raptors vs. Heat: Schedule & tale of the tape

The Toronto Raptors are set to play in the second round of the NBA playoffs for only the second time in team history — and the first since 2001 — as they take on a franchise with considerably more post-season success.

The Miami Heat have won three NBA titles — all since 2006 — and reached the Finals four years in a row from 2011-2014 when LeBron James was with the team.

LeBron, of course, is back in Cleveland now. But Dwyane Wade, a key figure in the Heat's three championships, remains a prominent member of the team. Former Raptors star Chris Bosh has been sidelined for Miami due to blood-clot issues since mid-February and it's uncertain whether he'll return.

The Raptors have home-court advantage as they're the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference while Miami is No. 3. The team that advances will take on the winner between LeBron's top-seeded Cavaliers and the Atlanta Hawks.

Here's the schedule for the Toronto vs. Miami series:

Game 1 — Tuesday, May 3, 8 p.m. ET. Miami at Toronto.

Game 2 — Thursday, May 5, 8 p.m. ET. Miami at Toronto.

Game 3 — Saturday, May 7, 5 p.m. ET. Toronto at Miami.
