The Raptors have gone from producing 107 points per 100 possessions in the regular season to just 97.3 in the playoffs. Much of it is a product of a halfcourt offense that is too slow to get into its sets, struggles if the first action doesn't work and lacks execution. Granted, for all of that Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan are shooting a combined 32.5 percent in the postseason, and Toronto is so reliant on those players that it's tough for everyone else as a result with them struggling.

Raptors C Jonas Valanciunas has 39 points and 26 rebounds in the first two games against Miami after having 35 points and 34 rebounds in the first two game against Indiana. With Toronto struggling to score, it may be smart to get Valanciunas more post touches.
