The Heat Sweeps the Toronto Raptors

With the MVP candidacy looming over his head, it’s no surprise that LeBron James scored 28 points during the first three quarters of the game vs. the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday. The Miami Heat came away with a 96-72 victory, after the Raptors tied a franchise-worst with 23 points in the second half.

“They play the right way,” said Toronto coach Dwayne Casey after the game. “They have the star power to do it. My hat’s off to Miami. They’re a great team. I’m going to enjoy watching them. I hope my guys were watching and learning and that they learned from tonight and how fast and how physical the game is for 48 minutes. Not 24-minutes, 48 minutes.”

On the Raptors, James Johnson scored 18 points, while Alan Anderson brought 15 and DeMar DeRozan 12.

“First half, we brought the fight to them, let them know they were in a basketball game,” Johnson said. “In the second half, different story. They came out and brought the fight to us and they brought it good.”
