Raptors' Rapid Recap - Toronto 120 - Miami 113

-The shoe was on the other foot for this one as Toronto got up by 20 at the half before allowing Miami to crawl back into it. 

-The Raptors shot almost 70% from the field in the first tier, helping to jump out to this lead, but a combination of improved Miami D, Raptor turnovers and Dwyane Wade got the Heat to an almost equal point on the score board before Toronto finally pulled away late.

-Some questions about Jay Triano's rotations will certainly make the rounds post-game as Marco Belinelli and Amir Johnson, both of whom were instrumental in Toronto's big first-half lead, saw few minutes in the second half despite Miami's assault.

-Chris Bosh again led the Raps with 29 points and 12 rebounds but tonight he got big lifts from Andrea Bargnani (24 and 10), Hedo Turkoglu (19 points, 5 rebounds and 8 assists) and surprisingly, Jarrett Jack, who came off the bench with 17.

-The Heat were led by Wade of course with 30 points, and Mario Chalmers dropped in a career-high 30 as well, including five 3-pointers.

-While the win got Toronto to a game of .500, the Dinos still have a lot of work to do on keeping intensity up for an entire match, something that no doubt will be put to the test Sunday when the Magic are in town.
