Ibaka, Johnson suspended for throwing punches

Ibaka, Johnson suspended for throwing punches

The shooting guard signed a deal with the Miami Heat ahead of the 2016-17 National Basketball Association season, marking the seventh team he's played for in his career. The Raptors are second, having won five of their last six games.

-This was the HEAT's first regular season win in IN since February 14, 2012. The former was suspended $25,000 while the latter was hit with $10,000.

"They are always prepared, they always play the right way and they are always defensively disciplined", Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers said, per Yahoo Sports.

All-star point guard Kyle Lowry is not expected to play after suffering a bruised tailbone in a nasty fall during Monday's game against Brooklyn.

The NBA has handed down its punishment to Serge Ibaka of the Toronto Raptors and James Johnson of the Miami Heat for their fight during the third quarter of Tuesday's game at the Air Canada Centre.

Both players were ejected from the game following their altercation.

That wasn't the only altercation between the Heat and Raptors - after the game, Toronto's DeMar Derozan and Miami's Goran Dragic had to be separated.

With four players out due to injury the Heat with an eight-man rotation and seven of those players scored 11 points or more. Most importantly, the effort was there.

The Cavaliers had hopes that guard Derrick Rose, who has been out since November 7 with an ankle injury, might return to competition during this trip but he will not play Thursday in Toronto or Friday at Indiana. "We're winning", Whiteside said, per ESPN. "He had some soreness in his foot or whatever".

- James Johnson served his one game suspension tonight.

The Raptors, meanwhile, missed Lowry against the Heat.

Heat: Dragic also finished with nine assists. "I would say it is more by whatever means necessary is the way Coach Riley looks at it". "We haven't seen them yet, so it's going to be a good game for us to see where we might have to adjust, because they might be a team we face again in the playoffs".

With the Raptors off to one of their best-ever starts, what better way to test their prowess than against two of the NBA's powerhouses in consecutive games?

Former University of North Carolina Tar Heels standout Wayne Ellington has rejuvenated his National Basketball Association career. Therefore, it might not matter how messy things get for the Raptors. "We get in three in the morning, doesn't matter". They can not let these losses get to them like DeRozan did Tuesday night. We hold a team to 40 percent. And then you put yourself in a position where it's down to the end of the game and you have to execute a defensive scheme, and carry out things you have to do.
