Miami Heat vs. Toronto Raptors Game Recap: Comeback Cut Short

Raptors beat Heat, grab sixth straight win

Casey suggested that Anunoby might be given the game off Tuesday as a precaution. "Coach makes sure we see the standings every day".

Dwyane Wade is back in Miami where it all started and he has no intentions of leaving again. Cleveland's trade deadline makeover provided some much-needed youth, athleticism and defence. "We'll look at the film and see areas where we can improve and get better", said Fred VanVleet, who had 10 points off the bench.

Miami is one of four teams to win in Toronto this season, beating the Raptors 90-89 on January 9 when Ellington scored a last-second layup.

Even so, Casey wasn't thrilled with Tuesday's effort.

"I'm going into the summer and seeing how I feel", he said.

The Cavs, who were stuck in the middle of a slump before the deadline, chose to shake up their roster considerably, sending away six players on their roster to bring in four new faces in hopes of reenergizing the rest of the squad heading into the home stretch of the season. Josh Richardson pitched in with 16 points and two rebounds, and rookie Bam Adebayo finished with 15 points, 10 rebounds, three assists and two blocks. The Raptors' second unit scored 55 points Sunday at Charlotte.

The Raptors came out and broke the game open in the third quarter. With the game tied 77-77, the Raptors went on 21-4 run and ended the frame with a 98-81 lead.

Asked if he had considered sitting Wade on the second night of back-to-backs, Spoelstra said: "Not right now, no".

"There are going to be stretches for any team during the season, and you look around, and they are going to have their ups and downs, " Raptors swingman C.J. Miles said.

Toronto's bench, the toast of the National Basketball Association in recent weeks for outscoring opposing reserve units, struggled in their first appearance of the night and couldn't extend the lead on this occasion. I don't think Wade wants his friend to make that same mistake he did in the twilight of his career. "We've got to have attention to detail, closing out games and not getting hit over the head with a bat at 12:00 at night".

Right now, at 30-27, they are clinging to the eighth seed out east.

Toronto's bench was outscored by Miami's reserves 52-40 - the first time in a while that crew was out-done. And they certainly looked like they hadn't been in that situation for a while, as the Heat put up a 31-17 fourth quarter and very almost snatched this win right out of Toronto's mouth.
