Miami Heat, Toronto Raptors game features multiple scuffles, possible spitting

Miami Heat, Toronto Raptors game features multiple scuffles, possible spitting

The Heat may not possess a bonafide star but they have a collection of good players who pride themselves on playing hard every night and leaving everything on the floor. The Heat (23-17) have now won fight straight and 12 of their past 16 games.

Ibaka has been ejected from games five times in his career. However, they are still 7-3 in their last 10.

The Cavs escaped a big loss themselves on Wednesday, when returning point guard Isaiah Thomas was fined - as opposed to getting suspended - for a rather blatant clothesline on Minnesota Timberwolves forward Andrew Wiggins on Tuesday.

Victor Oladipo had 26 points, seven rebounds and four assists and Lance Stephenson gave IN a late boost of energy that almost led IN back from a 10-point deficit IN the final 9:57. Kyle Lowry is already day-to-day with a back injury. Lowry was injured late in overtime in the victory over the Brooklyn Nets Monday.

Miami Heat forward James Johnson and Toronto Raptors veteran Serge Ibaka have each been suspended one game without pay for throwing punches during Tuesday's heated National Basketball Association clash, the league announced.

The NBA also fined the Raptors' DeMar DeRozan $25,000 (U.S.) and the Heat's Goran Dragic $10,000 for an altercation at the end of the game, during which DeRozan attempted to forcefully shove Dragic with an open hand.




Well, "The Man With The Golden Arm" got it done late once again, but it wasn't a game victor and it came off a more traditional look for him. I'm sure coach Dwane Casey asked some very embarrassing questions at practice today, starting with "How did we get out-rebounded 64 to 37?"

On paper, there are a number of teams who are more talented than the Florida-based franchise but there are few that can match them for effort.

Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert, who has been out since November 20 with a knee injury, will not make his return Thursday as had been hoped.

"It's been a rough stretch for us", said Lue, whose team has played eight of its past 10 games on the road. "He had some soreness in his foot or whatever". He also will miss Friday's game against Cleveland.

The game-winner. With Miami trailing 89-88, Wayne Ellington made a game-winning layup with 0.3 seconds remaining. "I would say it is more by whatever means necessary is the way Coach Riley looks at it". Therefore, it might not matter how messy things get for the Raptors.
