Toronto Raptors vs. Miami Heat: Live Score, Results and Game Highlights
It's game time in South Beach.
Live updates after the break.
LeBron with 31 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds in the win. Just his second 30+, 10+, 10+ game in a Heat uniform.— Tom Haberstroh (@tomhaberstroh) January 24, 2013
It's amazing that at one point the Toronto Raptors were beating the Miami Heat by 15 points on their home court.
Well all that changed once Dwyane Wade and LeBron James decided to take the game over—leading the Heat to a 123-116 victory.
LeBron James recorded his fourth career triple double against the Raptors with 31 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds, and he did that while having a somewhat underwhelming shooting night, shooting just 12-of-23 from the floor.
Dwyane Wade had his hottest shooting night of the year, dropping 35 points while Chris Bosh hopped in with 12 points and 12 rebounds.
The Raptors just wouldn't go away all night. With 52 bench points—20 from Alan Anderson and 16 from Terrence Ross—the Raptors were getting production from everywhere on the court.
The real difference maker came when Amir Johnson fouled out in overtime, falling to a Wade pump-fake as the Raptors did all night.
It wasn't an impressive win by the Heat, but it was a win nonetheless. The Raptors were the ones who really impressed, committing just nine turnovers on the night and shooting 50 percent from the field.
Up next for the Heat is a Friday night matchup with the Detroit Pistons.
All is right in the Miami Heat world. LeBron James gets one more rebound, giving him 31 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds on the night. #Dang
Heat 123, Raptors 116—end of game
It seems like years ago that the Raptors had a 15-point lead on the Heat doesn't it?

Season-high 35 points for Dwyane Wade.— Tom Haberstroh (@tomhaberstroh) January 24, 2013
If LeBron doesn't get one more rebound I'm calling a conspiracy theory on the NBA. David Stern is probably behind it.

Thanks for playing, Raptors— Mike Prada (@MikePradaSBN) January 24, 2013
Well that could be all she wrote for the Raptors. 10-straight points, courtesy of a Ray Allen three ball (18 points for Jesus Shuttlesworth).
1 more rebound and LeBron's got a triple-double.
Heat 120, Raptors 114—58.3 remaining in OT
Caught air balls should count as rebounds. #JustSaying
Heat 115, Raptors 114—1:36 remaining in OT
The Raptors keep falling for Dwyane Wade's pump fake. Haven't they watched any tape on him?
Wade with a 32, 6 and 5 line so far. Heat up 115-114 with 1:57 left in OT in yet another deadline-writing delight.— Tim Reynolds (@ByTimReynolds) January 24, 2013
Dwyane Wade with 30 -- just his third 30+ game of the season. He AVERAGED 30.2 in 2009. Times (and role) have changed.— Tom Haberstroh (@tomhaberstroh) January 24, 2013
LeBron James with five rare three-balls tonight. Too bad he's missed four of them.
Raptors 114, Heat 113—2:37 remaining in OT
Mario Chalmers fouled out. Probably should put Chris Andersen in at the point.
Amir Johnson fouled out ...
... Not shocking as he leads the league in personal fouls. Oh well, Aaron Gay in for him.
Raptors 112, Heat 110—4:14 remaining in OT
Yuck, two of three missed free throws for D.Wade.
The Raptors have some serious talent that could take them far, especially when they are being coached this well.
Can't stress enough how impressive the Raptors have looked tonight. Dwane Casey has these kids playing smart ball.

After stalling from a pick-and-roll, LeBron misses last second 20-footer. Free basketball in Miami.— Tom Haberstroh (@tomhaberstroh) January 24, 2013
Ahhhhhhhh...LeBron clanks the game-winner as time expires.
Nice take by LeBron though. He's just a little too strong. Got to lay off the weights.
Heat 109, Raptors 109—heading into overtime
Interestingly enough the Raptors go with a small two point guard lineup with Kyle Lowry and Jose Calderon on the court.
As expected it didn't turn out well. Heat ball, all tied up, 20 seconds left.
Heat 109, Raptors 109—20.0 remaining in the 4th quarter
It's time for LeBron to do his thing.
Chris Bosh's first double-digit rebound night (12 rebounds) in 10 games.
Good performance by Bosh, but he's got to rebound like this night in and night out.
Heat 109, Raptors 109—0:36 remaining in the 4th quarter
Heat & Raptors exchanging haymakers. Tie game with a minute left.— Brian Windhorst (@WindhorstESPN) January 24, 2013
Holy shootout. Jose Calderon three followed by a LBJ three ball.
Who's going to be next? It wasn't even bad defense on Calderon, he just sank it.
Heat 108, Raptors 108—1:07 remaining in the 4th quarter
Two identical missed layups by Mario Chalmers then Dwyane Wade.
That was some Harlem Globetrotters stuff right there.
Raptors 105, Heat 103—1:50 remaining in the 4th quarter
Scores has been fixed. Heat & Raptors in a tight one with 4 min left. Credit where it's due, Bosh having best rebounding game in 3 weeks— Brian Windhorst (@WindhorstESPN) January 24, 2013
LeBron James has a very quiet 26 points tonight. I feel like I've only seen him score three or four times.
He gets his 20th double-double of the season, with his 10th assist to Ray Allen.
Heat 103, Raptors 102—3:23 remaining in the 4th quarter
Their problem is that they haven't put Chris "Bird-Man" Andersen in yet!
Turnovers “@shandelrich: If anything, this means rebounding isn't important as everyone writes. Heat out-reb TOR 41-20 in a 1pt game.”— Jorge Sedano (@SedanoShow) January 24, 2013
Heat 100, Raptors 100—4:45 remaining in the 4th quarter
