Miami Heat vs. Toronto Raptors: Postgame Grades for Miami Heat
Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Heat are back on track after a 100-85 victory over the Toronto Raptors.

The 15-point margin is a bit deceiving, though, as the Raptors led by six at halftime and were within three points with seven minutes left in the fourth quarter.

The Heat finally closed out the Raptors once LeBron James got back on the court with just under five minutes remaining, scoring seven of the Heat's final 10 points.

LeBron finished with 30 points, eight rebounds and seven assists, while shooting 62.5 percent from the floor.

He didn't do it alone, though, as Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade added 51 points on 59.5 percent shooting.

The Heat's Big Three accounted for 81 of the Heat's 100 points. While that's impressive, it's also concerning when you think of the lack of production from everyone else not wearing numbers 1, 3 and 6.

LeBron and Wade turned up the defense on Rudy Gay and DeMar DeRozan late. Even though Gay and DeRozan combined for 56 points, the Heat made other players beat them late, and the rest of the Raptors' roster just couldn't carry that level of responsibility.

The Heat got a much-needed win and can now sleep well on their flight back to South Beach, where they'll take on the Charlotte Bobcats on Monday.
