On the final day of the regular season, Immanuel Quickley and the Toronto Raptors head to South Beach to take on Jimmy Butler and the Miami Heat. The game starts at 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT on Sunday, April 14. The game will be played inside the Kaseya Center in Miami.

The Raptors will not be playing in the postseason. Instead, Toronto will spend this offseason figuring out how to build around Scottie Barnes, R.J. Barrett, and Quickley. The Heat, on the other hand, have qualified for the postseason. Their postseason will likely begin in the Play-In Tournament. Last season, Miami went to the NBA Finals as the No. 8 seed, so the Heat know what it takes to win these big games.

The NBA game between the Raptors and the Heat will air on Bally Sports Sun and Sportsnet ONE. Those are local networks for each region, meaning only the residents in that area have access to the game. Out-of-market fans can watch the Raptors take on the Heat with NBA League Pass. If you subscribe to Sling TV, you can add NBA League Pass to your plan for an additional cost. Scroll below to find out how to watch NBA games from anywhere.
