The Toronto Raptors have lost only four times this season at home, one of them to the Miami Heat, who will visit the Air Canada Centre Tuesday night. Had the choice between an Adebayo dunk or an Ellington corner 3. We got a game tomorrow we got to worry about and then enjoy a break. It's a matter of attitude and making sure we execute.
-Dragic scored 16 points in the third quarter to keep the Heat afloat on a 28-point night.
McKay hit 14 of 20 shots from the floor and added seven rebounds and three assists for the Chippewas (16-10, 5-8 Mid-American Conference). Dwyane Wade had 10 points and 11 rebounds and Hassan Whiteside collected 10 points and 10 boards. In the last few minutes of the game, they held the Raptors to zero field goals.
Even so, Casey wasn't thrilled with Tuesday's effort.
The Cavs, who were stuck in the middle of a slump before the deadline, made a decision to shake up their roster considerably, sending away six players on their roster to bring in four new faces in hopes of reenergizing the rest of the squad heading into the home stretch of the season.
After a brilliant third quarter supplied them with a 17-point lead going into the fourth, the Raptors were outscored 31-17 in the final 12 minutes.More news: North Atlantic Treaty Organisation chief warns European Union over defense pact

Toronto's bench, the toast of the National Basketball Association in recent weeks for outscoring opposing reserve units, struggled in their first appearance of the night and couldn't extend the lead on this occasion.
The Raps were able to reclaim the lead just before the half, thanks to a last-ditch, off-balance three-point attempt from Lowry that went in against all odds.
Toronto opened up its lead in the third quarter. Right now, I'm playing the game and I'm taking it year by year. But you have to give them credit, they played well. James' own close friend thinks that the Cavs need to make such a move in order to re-sign him, even after a series of deals that revitalized the franchise at the trade deadline.
It ain't gonna be easy - Miami is now the 8th seed in the Eastern Conference, but they've lost 7 outta their last 10 games. And like any person who has seen the Heat's Miami Vice uniforms, he wants one of those.
The Heat's comeback fell just short, allowing Toronto to claim victory and extended its winning streak to six games.
"They can go extremely small, and they are very athletic", DeRozan said of the Heat.
