Toronto is expected to be without starting point guard Kyle Lowry due to a lingering back injury and forward Serge Ibaka after he was suspended for exchanging punches with James Johnson of the Miami Heat in Tuesday's 90-89 home loss.

DeRozan, 28, says he never forgets where he came from and has a tradition before every game.

Dragic had a big game for Miami, scoring 24 points on 10 of 21 shooting with 12 rebounds. LeBron James became the first player in National Basketball Association history to score at least 35 points in every game of a four-game playoff sweep. Rodney McGrudger is out until April with a stress fracture in his left leg. Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry exited Monday's game with a tailbone injury and had X-rays. These are young players, and they need to learn how to finish, but the talent is there. Bam Adebayo recorded 16 points and career bests of 15 rebounds and five blocked shots, Ellington scored 15 points, and Hassan Whiteside contributed 13 points and 15 rebounds. DeRozan had 35 points, 3 rebounds, and 6 assists in the victory. DeRozan shot lights out, almost tying his career-best in three-pointers made.

Tempers flared between the two teams in a very physical game. He converted the shot and free throw to give the Raptors the lead for good, winning 114-113 in a close victory.

They should also be highly motivated to rebound from the rout against a Raptors team 2.5 games ahead of them in the standings.

In games where they allow below 100 points, Brooklyn is 10-1 and Toronto is 11-3.

Report claims hackers could start a nuclear war through vulnerable weapons systems
The M-28 Davey Crockett was America's smallest nuclear capable weapon, with a yield between 10 and 20 tons TNT equivalent. The largest nuclear weapon now in America's is the B83, with a maximum yield of 1.2 megatons of TNT.

Toronto averages 5.8 blocks per game, which ranks second in the league.

The Nets overcame a nine-point Toronto lead in the fourth quarter to force overtime and then held a one-point lead with 42.8 seconds left on a layup by Spencer Dinwiddie, who had a career-high 31 points.

The inefficient offense of Brooklyn will battle against the top-notch defense of Toronto.

Before practice in Toronto on Wednesday, Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue showed his team video of the first quarter against Minnesota. The under is 8-0 in the last eight Miami Tuesday games.

The two battled hard against each other two springs ago when the Heat and Raptors met in the second round, each getting hurt in a gruelling series that went seven games.
