Serge Ibaka, James Johnson suspended for throwing punches

TORONTO ON- JANUARY 9 Miami Heat guard Wayne Ellington nails down the winner as Toronto Raptors forward OG Anunoby defends. Toronto Raptors vs Miami Heat in 2nd half action of NBA regular season play at Air Canada Centre. Raptors lose 90-89. To Ellington hits game-winner with .3 seconds, lifts Heat to thrilling win in Toronto

Ibaka will serve his suspension on January 11, when the Raptors host the Cleveland Cavaliers at Air Canada Centre. They play Toronto at Air Canada Centre on Thursday night.

The fact the Toronto Raptors were going to struggle without Kyle Lowry was expected.

Ellington, Johnson and Bam Adebayo all played more than 30 minutes, all scored 15 points off the bench and all made key plays throughout the game as Miami won its sixth in a row and snapped a 10-game road losing streak against the Pacers. The home team had won 18 of the previous 20 regular-season games in this series.

He is now tied with Stephen Curry for fifth-most three-pointers made this season at 116.

Thanks to another long, late three-pointer by Wayne Ellington, which rimmed in with 23.2 seconds remaining after he fired it from 31 feet away, the Heat picked up its first regular season road win in IN since Valentine's Day 2012 with a 114-106 victory over the Pacers.

"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.

Remember Wayne Ellington's game-winning layup against Toronto?

"People say the last two years the way we have done it is non-traditional or unconventional", Spoelstra told Yahoo Sports.

Victor Oladipo led the Pacers (21-20) with 26 points, but IN finished just 1-of-18 from three-point range for the game. On the season, Miami has been defeated by an average of 1.3 points. They both got in another shot before being separated.

It's the same injury that recently sidelined him for 11 games. Dragic netted 24 points and had 12 rebounds, while DeRozan had a game-high 25 points for the Raptors.

Thomas, who learned on Wednesday that he had been fined $20,000 after he struck Minnesota's Andrew Wiggins in the face during Monday's game, said Lue does not have to tell the Cleveland players they are performing poorly. "I think when we do that, we're a tough team to beat, no matter who we're playing".

"It's going to be a good test for us coming down to the midpoint, close to the all-star break".
