Sometimes we come behind home, carrying played good on a road, and we consider it’s only going to be automatic. We’ve got to do it.”
The Heat couldn’t keep a good times rolling Friday.
DeMar DeRozan scored 30 points, and a Toronto Raptors used a 17-2 run to erase an 11-point third-quarter necessity and stormed past a Heat 108-94 during AmericanAirlines Arena notwithstanding a good sharpened night from Wade, Goran Dragic and Gerald Green.

“That’s a thing about scorers in this joining — if we send them to a free-throw line they get into a good rhythm,” Spoelstra pronounced of DeRozan, who was 7 of 9 from a line in a initial half. “At that point, he became a unequivocally tough cover. He started knocking down unequivocally tough pull-up burst shots. You have to credit him. He knows to to put a round in a basket.”
DeRozan’s opening was a good bounceback after what happened to him Thursday night. He strike a 40-foot shot during a buzzer in Charlotte for what seemed to be a game-winner. Instead, it was negated since a Raptors had called timeout. The Raptors finished adult losing that diversion in overtime.
Friday night, it was a Heat that wished it could put DeRozan in a timeout.

Spoelstra pronounced his group didn’t whisper even yet it was adult by 11 points in a third quarter.
“If we did, we would have corrected it right there,” he said. “It only looked like we were a step delayed containing them a rest of a game. DeRozan was removing into a paint probably each possession he wanted to.”
Toronto (17-11) came in with some-more highway wins (eight) than any group in a Eastern Conference, and a Heat (15-10) was tied for a many home wins (11) in a East.
Toronto led by as many as 7 points in a second entertain before Wade and Green started clicking offensively for a Heat.
