The Raptors were without point guard Kyle Lowry after the three-time All-Star bruised his tailbone during Monday's overtime win at Brooklyn.
Guard Tyler Johnson missed the Raptors' game because of a left shoulder strain and he is listed as questionable for tonight. Both received single-game suspensions without pay. Thaddeus Young had 12 points and nine rebounds.
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.
Ellington then made a tough layup to give the Heat a 90-89 lead with just 0.3 seconds left, eventually becoming the game-winner.
The Heat rank first in three pointers allowed per game (25.0) while the Pacers rank 23rd (30.5). On the season, Miami has been defeated by an average of 1.3 points.
Although Whiteside had himself a nice start and mixed things up with nifty hook shots and aggressive dives to the rim, he got into some foul trouble.
After reeling off wins in 18 of 19 games from November 11 through December 13, the Cavaliers have stumbled and lost six of their past nine, including a 127-99 shellacking at the hands of Minnesota on Monday, their worst loss of the season.
Ellington has been fantastic for the Heat this season and leads the team in three-point shooting, making 41 percent of his attempts.
Thomas clotheslined Wiggins in the jaw as he drove to the basket. "He doesn't have to say anything". While he didn't have as many boards or blocks this time around, he was still very active on both ends of the floor and set some great screens to free up his teammates. "I think when we do that, we're a tough team to beat, no matter who we're playing".
"I think it's important for us", he said.
