Raptors' Ibaka suspended one game for scrap vs. Heat

Raptors' Ibaka suspended one game for scrap vs. Heat

Johnson will serve his suspension Thursday when the Heat take on the Pacers. Goran Dragić led the way for the HEAT with 20 points.

Despite being on the second night of a back-to-back, the Slovenian was as sharp as ever on attacks to the basket and mid-range jumpers off the pick-and-roll. That's a marked increase from the 24.8 per cent of overall scoring from long-distance shots past year.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - CJ McCollum had 27 points and seven assists, and the Trail Blazers beat the Thunder in the opener of a four-game trip.

A referee came in to separate the duo, before they were both sent to their respective locker rooms.

Then the fourth quarter happened.

Both teams have won a game in the season series.

What a stuff on Domantas Sabonis.

-Whiteside also played a huge role tonight with 16 points, 15 rebounds, and four blocks.

Met Office warning for ice and fog across NI
Heavy rainfall is expected later tomorrow, overnight and into early Saturday - with falls of between 30mm and 50mm likely. The bad weather will continue in to Friday, with strong winds and a spell of heavy rain expected.

Talk about a complete effort.

The Raptors come into the game as the NBA's third-highest-scoring team, averaging 111 points an outing. More than that, Miami is 8-2 over their last 10. Goran Dragic scored 20 points and Wayne Ellington made the decisive 3-pointer with 25.5 seconds left to give Miami a 114-106 victory at Indiana.

Ellington finished with 15 points. The Heat shot 13-of-30 from the three point range, while the Pacers made just 1-of-18.

Counting the playoffs, the Heat had lost six consecutive games in IN dating back to a Game 2 victory over the Pacers in the 2014 Eastern Conference Finals. Next up, on Saturday, also at the ACC, will be the Golden State Warriors, whose run-and-gun three-point mentality has revolutionized the game and put them in the NBA Finals the past three years - each time against Cleveland. Miami finished with 58 points in the paint.

The Raptors had trouble making shots all night.

When it was all said and done, Jones Jr. scored eight points on 4-of-6 shooting.

Derrick Jones Jr., signed to a two-way contract by the Heat on December 31, made his first start for Miami in place of Tyler Johnson, who strained his left shoulder going through drills at shootaround earlier in the day.
