Miami Heat Use a Big Second Half to Snap Raptors Winning Streak

Why must watching the Toronto Raptors play the Miami Heat always be so painful?

Like of course this would be the night that Kendrick Nunn would go off!

Yeah, today wasn’t a great one as the Raptors watched their three-game win streak get snapped by the short-handed Heat by a score of 111-102. Behind Nunn’s 28 points off the bench, the Heat reigned supreme in the battle of Florida.

“It’s about not making any excuses about everything that’s going on, and [instead] focusing on improvement,” commented coach Erik Spoelstra on the Heat’s recent play with key pieces out of the lineup. “These are your opportunities for your team to grow, to get better, dealing with adversity, without making excuses. There were a lot of guys who put their fingerprints on this game.”

After a fairly even second half, the Heat outscored the Raptors by a score of 55-44 in the second half.

On the Raptors end of things, Kyle Lowry struggled mightily with his offense, while Fred VanVleet scored a team-high 24 points while dishing out nine assists. OG Anunoby and Pascal Siakam added 18 points apiece and Terence Davis chipped in with 16 points albeit in a loss.

Friday will grant the Raptors an opportunity to bounce right back as they will take on the Heat yet again.
