Ibaka, Johnson ejected in Raptors' loss to Heat

Tip-off is scheduled for 7:30 PM ET. DeRozan leads in points and in steals (1.2) per game while Valanciunas tops in rebounds (7.8).
The Raptors will be looking for a similar result after thoroughly outplaying the Milwaukee Bucks in their last outing, 129-110. They host the Pistons on Wednesday night for the final game of this home stand before traveling to Atlanta.
Goran Dragic had 24 points to lead the Heat (23-17), which led by as much as 12 points and improved to 14-3 when holding opponents under 100 points.
Casey, like most competent modern National Basketball Association coaches, has tried to stagger sitting his star players so that at least one of them is on the floor at all times.
Raptors: The Raptors also won 12 straight at home from January 18 to Mar 4, 2016. That began, according to backup point guard Delon Wright, when the Raptors instructed their young players to learn and work out together during the offseason.
Masai Ujiri hinted that Kyle Lowry (bruised tailbone) could miss the next two games for Toronto. Serge Ibaka finished with 11 after he was ejected in the second half. Even if Lowry was keeping to himself because he expected to be traded - which he was right to expect - it seems unusual that they never even got dinner or something together.
Toronto is 13-9 ATS on the road with 11 overs and 11 unders. I'm tempted to take the Raptors who are an impressive 14-2 at home, but I'm sticking with the Cavs to take advantage of the shorthanded Raptors and finish on top behind a triple-double from LeBron.
Brooklyn got off to a quick start in the extra period, gaining a four-point lead, but then failed to score on three straight possessions. Barnes is our favorite option at SF tonight and we will be locking him in as a great cash option for this 4-game slate.
Toronto averages 48.2 points in the paint per game, which ranks fourth in the league. Lowry had 18 points and 11 assists in 38 minutes.
The setback to Miami also snapped a five-game winning streak for Toronto, with leading scorer DeMar DeRozan averaging 33.4 points during that stretch.
Tensions ran high throughout the game, which was decided by Wayne Ellington's driving layup with three-tenths of a second to play. The Raptors are second, having won five of their last six games.
DeRozan, named NBA Eastern Conference player of the week for the third time this season on Monday, said those two weeks forged his close friendship between Lowry. This is indeed game no. 41, which means we've arrived at the season's midpoint.
Brees, defensive stand, help Saints survive Panthers, 31-26
Panthers leading receiver Devin Funchess, too, is active as expected after being listed as questionable with a sore shoulder. But my heart is telling me Cam Newton dominates this game and puts up a victory. "This win is special", Jordan said.
Ohio State Basketball Team Upsets No. 1 Michigan State
In its second true road game, Michigan State didn't respond well to a run by its opponent. "Yeah, coaches get surprised", he said. Miles Bridges and Joshua Langford each scored 17 points for the Spartans, who fell to 15-and-2 and 3-and-1 in conference play.
Ohio State Cotton Bowl melee results in plenty of weirdness
Barrett beat an incredible nine top-10 teams in his Ohio State career, by far the most in school history, and was 4-0 vs. There were throws off his back foot, missed timing routes, even a deliberate throwaway which was almost intercepted.
