Notebook: Heat 93, Raptors 83


Zachary Paul, for NBA.com
Posted Mon Mar 31, 2014 11:44 PM - Updated Mon Mar 31, 2014 11:45 PM

THE FACT: This is the first time the Miami Heat are ahead of the Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference standings.

THE LEAD: Without two starters and a key reserve, the Miami Heat were just fine.

LeBron James had 32 points, eight assists and seven rebounds to lead the Heat to a 93-83 victory against the Toronto Raptors Monday at AmericanAirlines Arena. The Heat were playing without Dwyane Wade (hamstring), Greg Oden (back) and Ray Allen (flu). With the bulk of the load on James, the Heat rallied from a 10-point, first-half deficit.

Miami led by many as 10 in the second half before holding off a late Raptors run. Toronto pulled to withing 81-78 on a layup by Greivis Vasquez with 6:13 left, but could get no closer. Miami scored six straight points to clinch the victory.

The Raptors were led by Vasquez's 17 points.

QUOTABLE: "Guys will look at the standings. I look at the standings. We're aware of it. It's not that we're naïve to it. I didn't talk about it."
-- Heat coach Erik Spoelstra on passing the Pacers for the top seed in the East

THE STAT: James was 11-for-20 from the field and also went to the free throw line 11 times.

TURNING POINT: Miami was in danger of letting things slip away when it trailed by 10 late in the second quarter. They rallied to tie the score just before halftime.

QUOTABLE II: "I don't know what to blame. Maybe we made stupid mistakes. Maybe we weren't fresh from yesterday's game. We were missing something."
-- Raptors center Jonas Valanciunas

HOT: Chris Andersen usually earns praise because of his "energy" stats such as blocking shots and rebounding. When he scores, it's only an added bonus for the Heat. He scored seven of his 13 points in the fourth quarter.

NOT: The night went from bad to worse for Raptors guard Kyle Lowry. He scored just 11 points on 4-for-11 shooting but that was the least of his worries. He left the game in the fourth quarter with a knee injury, which occurred on a first-half collision with James.

GOOD MOVE: The Heat continue to prove they can win regardless of who's in the lineup. Toney Douglas and Udonis Haslem started in place of Wade and center Oden, who sat for a third straight game with back spasms. Douglas hit a key 3-pointer that put the Heat ahead 90-81 with 2:13 remaining.

BAD MOVE: The Raptors gave up too much to the Heat's supporting cast. Andersen and Mario Chalmers were both in double figures. Reserve James Jones, making a rare appearance in Wade's absence, also hit some timely shots.

NOTABLE: The Heat are 18-3 at home against the Heat. ... The Raptors are the only team in the NBA that hasn't beat the Heat in the Big Three era.

UP NEXT: For the Heat, Wednesday vs. Milwaukee, Friday vs. Minnesota, Sunday vs. New York. For the Raptors, Wednesday vs. Houston, Friday vs. Indiana, Saturday @ Milwaukee.
