Well. At least this one didn't get lost in OT, or the final five minutes. The Miami Heat won a 100 to 85 decision over the Toronto Raptors despite the Dinos getting 56 points from DeMar DeRozan and Rudy Gay. The Heat's "big 3" in fact went one better with three 20+ point scorers as LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh combined for 81 of the team's 100. We Can Blame This Loss On... ...playing a more talented team for starters, something that really showed late in the game. Despite shooting under 40 per cent from the field, the Raps were within a couple of points with minutes to go, but the Heat stepped up the D, Toronto made some questionable offensive decisions, and at the other end, Bosh and James nailed huge shots shutting the door for good on the Raps.
