In the least cared about Heat game in the history of their franchise, Miami dominated throughout but again struggled late against Chris Bosh’s former Toronto Raptors.
Miami cruised through the first three quarters, looking likely to blow their unfancied rivals out of the water, but were unable to do so, allowing the youthful Raptors back into the game.
It was the first Heat game of the season I missed, as I was busy watching a different sporting event (take a guess, yes that’s right, Australia’s women’s hockey team playing a friendly against New Zealand), and accidentally caught the highlights on SportsCenter, thus ruining my interest in watching 2 hours of Toronto.
LeBron continued his hugely efficient season, finishing with 30 points off just 17 shots. He also shot a pleasing 10/12 from the line.
The hard to determine DeMarr DeRozan scored an entertaining 25 points. I can’t figure that dude out. Sometimes he shows the whole package, other times he just looks like another super athlete with no real skill.
Either way, no one really cares about this game at all. I’ll have another post a little later reflecting on the Super Bowl 24 hours following its dramatic conclusion.
