Heat_LeBron_James_2013Within the first week of the season, the Heat saw long winning streaks end against two opponents it has dominated for several years. That did not happen a third time, despite another sluggish start.

The Heat grabbed its first lead one-tenth of a second before halftime and rode a dynamic second half from LeBron James and Dwyane Wade to dispatch the Raptors 104-95 on Tuesday at Air Canada Centre.

Ahead 78-74 after three quarters, Miami unleashed a 12-0 spurt to start the fourth, during which Toronto committed seven turnovers in less than four minutes.
