TORONTO -- Poor defence early and bad free-throw shooting late cost the Toronto Raptors dearly Friday night. Still they made a game of it against the surging Miami Heat, cutting a 20-point deficit to two before falling 90-83 to the NBA champions. It was the Heats ninth straight win. "Missed opportunities," lamented Toronto coach Dwane Casey whose team trailed 57-43 at the half. Toronto went 2 for 10 from the free-throw line in the fourth quarter. And there were other stumbles as the clock wound down. "It was a lot of opportunities that we didnt cash in on," said Casey. LeBron James scored 27 points and Dwyane Wade added 22 as Miami hung on for the win. DeMar DeRozan had 25 and Rudy Gay 21 for Toronto (6-9), which has lost two in a row and four of its last six. The Raptors led once -- 8-7 in the first quarter. Miami led 57-43 after a half that saw Toronto shoot 37.5 per compared to the Heats 57.1 -- thanks to 30 points in the paint from the visitors. It also helped that the Heat made 6-of-12 three-pointers in the first half while Toronto was good on only 4 of 17. Toronto, down by 20 in the third and trailing 78-70 going into the final quarter, made it close with its late rally but Miami survived a frenetic fourth that saw desperate defence from both sides. Wade saw the win as a confidence- and character-builder, a game "where everything is going great for you and then it doesnt." "How can you hold on, how can you figure out a way through all the adversity to continue to believe in the game plan and find a way to win?" The Heat (13-3) has lost just once in 13 outings since opening the season at 1-2. Miamis mastery over the Raptors now stands at 13 straight games. Torontos last win against the Heat was a 111-103 decision on Jan. 27, 2010, at the Air Canada Centre. The Raptors current all-time losing streaks against an opponent are the Bulls (15), Suns (14) and Heat and Pacers (13). Wade and James combined to score the first 13 points-- and 15 of the first 17 -- for Miami in the second half as the Heat stretched its lead. But Torontos DeRozan and Gay gradually chipped away at the lead, cutting it to eight as the third quarter ended. Toronto outscored Miami 27-21 in the third and 13-12 in the fourth. James synopsis of the game was simple. "We made our run and then they made theirs. At that point, its how you counter that. For us as a veteran ball club, its going to happen. We would have loved to push that huge lead up in the third, just keep it going. But theyve got some good players. They got stops, we turned the ball over, we didnt execute and they got back into the game. But we finished it up." And Toronto failed to take advantage at the free-throw line. James was nursing a sore finger, back and leg by the end of the night. "I got pretty banged up today. Im glad we got a day off (Saturday), I can try to get back in order." Baskets were hard to come by as the fourth quarter began with Chris (Birdman) Andersen flying though the air to block a DeRozan shot. A Kyle Lowry three-pointer made it 80-75 as Miami went cold. James returned to the fray but Toronto kept coming with a DeRozan jump shot cutting the lead to 83-79. A Gay layup reduced the deficit to two, at 83-81 with 4:22 remaining. Former Raptor Chris Bosh fouled out with 1:37 remaining with four points, five rebounds and one assist. Wade and James combined to score the first 13 points-- and 15 of the first 17 -- for Miami in the second half before Toronto launched its run. Casey saw positives in the loss "The way we played the second half, and I told the team in there, shows we can play with anybody. Thats the best team in the league and they were throwing their best haymakers down the stretch. "But theres two halves. We cant play one half and expect to beat anybody." Heat coach Erik Spoelstra hinted his team was frustrated at the officiating in the second half. "But we gathered ourselves the last two and a half minutes and played through it and were able to execute and come away with the win." "Clearly we were a different team once we were up 20 from where we were going down the stretch the last 10-12 minutes," Spoelstra added. "Thats something we constantly have to work at. Stay on edge. Most of it is mental, most of it with us and thats the challenge." Fridays game featured an unlikely matchup of division winners, with two-time defending champion Miami leading the Southeast and Toronto topping the less-competitive Atlantic. Miami led by as much as nine in the first quarter but Toronto, showing some muscle under the basket, closed the gap to two before Miami responded. The Heat led 27-22 after a quarter that saw the two teams combine for 12 turnovers. Bosh was booed during introductions but quieted the crowd with an early dunk. Wade dipped into his bag of tricks several times early on. DeRozan had Torontos first six points. James didnt try a shot until almost six minutes into the game but it was worth the wait -- a reverse slam dunk from a long pass from Wade that had the crowd gurgling while giving Miami a 16-8 lead. Even when the Heat failed, as during a 24-second violation in the first quarter, they entertained with their ball movement. A 7-0 run early in the second quarter and some flashy baskets from Wade padded the Miami lead to 13 with James on the bench. James returned in style midway through the quarter, with an ally-oop from Bosh for his second bucket. He then made a three-pointer and came up limping after being fouled by Tyler Hansbrough, making one of two subsequent free throws. James celebrated another ally-oop, this time from a Ray Allen feed, after a dazzling DeRozan run at the basket just kissed. The highlight-reel play put James into double figures for the 511th straight game. The Raptors conclude their four-game homestand Sunday against Denver, Toronto GM Masai Ujiris former team.

In fact, with a few improvements, this could very well be a decent team over the next few seasons. I will go into more detail when digging into the Canucks Off-Season Game Plan, which will be coming earlier this year since they are part of the non-playoff contingent, there are some reasons to think this is a favourable situation for President of Hockey Operations Trevor Linden and whomever he selects to be the new general manager.(SportsNetwork.com) - The Carolina Hurricanes will try to salvage the finale of a five-game homestand on Monday night as they take on the struggling New Jersey Devils. The Hurricanes have lost two straight and three of four on this residency, including a 3-1 setback to the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday. Cam Ward came up with 19 saves in his clubs sixth loss in eight games overall. Jay McClement netted his first goal of the season in the loss as Carolina fell to 5-6-1 as the hosting team this season. It was starting to wear on me a little bit, so its nice to get it out of the way, but more importantly, we just didnt do the things we needed to do to get the win tonight. That would have been a little sweeter, said McClement. Making matters worse for the Hurricanes is that forward Eric Staal was hit on the foot by a slap shot from teammate Justin Faulk late in the third period. His status for this game is unknown. Staal is tied with Riley Nash and Faulk for the team lead with 15 points. Ward had missed Carolinas previous game with a lower-body injury, so backup Anton Khudobin figures to get the start tonight as the Canes play on consecutive days. He is 1-1-0 with a 3.96 goals against average and .861 save percentage in three meetings with the Devils. Slumping New Jersey has lost eight of 10 and fell to 4-10-2 in its past 16 with a 4-1 setback to the Washington Capitals on Saturday. Patrik Elias had the goal and Cory Schneider alllowed three tallies on 28 shots faced.dddddddddddd Elias was returning from a groin injury and aggravated the ailment, while forward Mike Cammalleri suffered a pulled muscle in his butt. Neither made the trip to Carolina, nor did Travis Zajac (lower body/illness) or Adam Larsson (flu). Its disappointing we werent the better team, Devils coach Peter DeBoer said after the loss to the Caps. They were better on the power play than we were. They were better on the penalty kill than we were. Their goalie was better than our goalie. It was across the board. Injuries really dont matter. Nobody cares. You have to find a way. While the Devils are leaving a host of players behind, forward Martin Havlat did make the trip. He has missed the past three games with a lower-body injury and is questionable for tonight. Havlat has two goals and six points in 14 games on the season. The Devils return home to host the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday, so it is unknown if Schneider will start tonight or if backup Scott Clemmensen will get a start. Schneider, who has started all but one of New Jerseys 27 games this season, is 3-1-0 with a 2.01 GAA and .933 save percentage in four meetings with the Hurricanes. Clemmensen is 3-6-0 against them with a 3.07 GAA and .896 save percentage in 12 games (7 starts). The Devils have won three straight and 10 of their last 14 versus the Hurricanes, including three in a row as the road team.
