Toronto needed five extra minutes to do it, but they earned an eight-point win over the Heat on Saturday night. They had the top two stars, also, but Miami had the next four on the list.

First Star

DeMar DeRozan (TOR) 32.4

DeRozan, a seven-year veteran out of the University of California, started at shooting guard for the Raptors and played 43:11 altogether. He led all scorers with 38 points, scored on 13-of-26 shooting from the field and 12-of-15 from the foul line, although he did miss both of his three-point shot attempts. He made it a double-double with 10 defensive rebounds and missed making it a triple by three assists, with seven. He added two steals and a blocked shot, finishing at plus-4 on the night.

No, I'm more upset I missed three free throws. It irks me but it was a fun game tonight. We fought hard for the win and it was a great game. - DeRozan, on making seven-of-10 free throws in overtime

Second Star

Jonas Valanciunas (TOR) 18.1

Valanciunas, a fourth-year player out of Utena, Lithuania, scored 20 points with 10 rebounds starting at center for the home team. He made seven-of-11 overall in 32:25, draining all six of his free throws and closing the night with a plus-5 rating. Two of his rebounds were offensive, and he added an assist and a blocked shot to close out his statline.

Third Star

Joe Johnson (MIA) 16.8

Johnson, making his second Five Star appearance in his eighth game as a member of the Heat, led the club with 28 points in a game-high 43:28. He made 11-of-21 shots, including a robust four-of-seven from outside and both of his attempts from the charity stripe, ending up at minus-6. Johnson, starting at shooting guard for Miami, had five assists and four rebounds (one offensive), but his four turnovers and five fouls kept him just out of the Second Star slot.

It's tough. We put ourselves in position to win that ballgame, Luol hitting the big 3 at the end of regulation to put us into overtime. We felt we had a breath of fresh air, we just couldn't come up with the big plays down the stretch. - Johnson

Fourth Star

Hassan Whiteside (MIA) 12.7

Whiteside, now tied with Dwyane Wade with 36 Five Stars appearances to lead Miami, is tied with Chris Bosh for second in the overall standings at 213 points. Relieving Amar'e Stoudemire off the bench for Miami for his 16th consecutive relief appearance, Whiteside played 33:02 and scored 13 points on the night, hitting five-of-12 overall and three-for-four from the foul line. He had 11 rebounds, including six offensive, with three blocks, a steal, and a game-low minus-9 rating.

Fifth Star

Justise Winslow (MIA) 12.4

Winslow, in his eighth start at power forward for Miami, makes his fifth Five Star appearance of the season. He played 42:37, making four-of-nine overall and three-of-four from the foul line, missing his only three-pointer. He had a minus-7 rating, five defensive boards, two assists, three steals and a block to go along with his 11 points on the night.
