Recap


Heat 123, Raptors 116 (OT): LeBron James posted his second triple-double of the season as Miami overcame a sluggish start to upend visiting Toronto.

After the teams exchanged leads in the extra period, Dwyane Wade put the Heat ahead for good on a jumper with 2:01 remaining. Alan Anderson missed a pair of 3-pointers down the stretch for Toronto, and Miami put the game away with free throws.

James had 31 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds for the 34th triple-double of his career. Wade added a game-high 35 points while Ray Allen poured in 18 off the bench.

Anderson's 20 points led seven Raptors in double figures. Jose Calderon added 17 points, rookie Terrence Ross had 16 and Amir Johnson racked up 15.

Trailing by seven at the half, the Heat drew even on a James jumper with 4:16 remaining in the third quarter, went ahead on a Wade layup the next trip down the court and carried an 88-84 lead into the fourth. An Allen 3-pointer with eight minutes remaining extended the Miami edge to 99-92, but Toronto stormed back to draw even and traded baskets with the Heat down the stretch to force extra time.
