To say Wednesday's affront to basketball by the Heat and Raptors felt like a throwaway preseason game would be giving it too much credit. It was more like a cross between one of those hastily conceived charity games the players organized during the lockout and a summer-league game in Las Vegas. Some Heat players went through the motions like they didn't even know the score. Others took advantage of the opportunity. Meanwhile, the Raptors were downright awful. The Heat rested three starters, including Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, and still defeated the Raptors 96-72 at AmericanAirlines Arena. The Raptors scored 23 points after halftime, which tied Toronto's franchise record for fewest points in a half.
