Five Stars: Heat 94, Raptors 87, OT

New, comments

The Heat relied on old man Wade to even the series, but it takes a whole team to win in the NBA. Read on for the best of Game Four.

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

First Star

Dwyane Wade (MIA) 20.6

Wade avoided international incident and started at shooting guard for the Heat, playing 38:31 altogether. He scored a game-high 30 points on 13-of-24 shooting, missing both of his three-pointers but making four-of-five from the free throw line. He also had four rebounds, two assists, two steals, and a plus-8 rating. It counts as Wade's 51st time this season in the Five Stars, and his 17th First Star.

Second Star

Bismack Biyombo (TOR) 17.5

Biyombo played 31:12 starting at center for the Raptors, and scored 13 points on four-of-six shooting. He made most of his money for Toronto on the boards, where he collected a game-high 13 rebounds (one-third of Toronto's rebounding total for the night). He was the only Raptor to block a shot, rejecting two, and added an assist, a steal, and a team-high plus-11 rating.

Third Star

Joe Johnson (MIA) 16.3

Johnson started at small forward for the Heat and played 41:11. He scored 15 points on five-of-13 shooting, missing three three-point shot attempts but making all five of his free throws. He earned a plus-7 rating and had three assists, three steals, two blocks, and two rebounds in total. This marks Johnson's seventh time in the Five Stars.

Fourth Star

Kyle Lowry (TOR) 11.5

Lowry, Toronto's all-star starting point guard, scored 10 points on a two-for-11 night from the field. He missed all six of his shot attempts from over the rainbow, making six-of-seven from the line. He dished out nine of Toronto's 12 assists for the game, adding seven rebounds, four steals and a minus-2 rating before fouling out with 32:23 on the floor.

Fifth Star

Luol Deng (MIA) 10.4

Deng makes the Five Stars for the 34th time overall, starting at power forward and playing a game-high 42:47. He scored nine points by making three-of-four from two-point distance, missing all three of his three-pointers (seriously the Heat was just one-for-15 from deep) and making three-of-four from the line. He had a game-high plus-14 rating and added a team-high nine boards with two steals and two helpers.

The Rest

Goran Dragic (MIA) 8.8

DeMarre Carroll (TOR) 8.7

Justise Winslow (MIA) 8.5

Terrence Ross (TOR) 7.4

Cory Joseph (TOR) 5.1

Josh Richardson (MIA) 4.8

Norman Powell (TOR) 4.0

Amar'e Stoudemire (MIA) 3.5

Patrick Patterson (TOR) 2.9

Lucas Nogueira (TOR) 2.4

Josh McRoberts (MIA) 1.9

Udonis Haslem (MIA) 0.8

Tyler Johnson (MIA) 0.6

DeMar DeRozan (TOR) -5.0

Yeah, DeRozan was pretty bad. He scored a total of nine points on four-of-17 shooting, and made only one-of-four from the line. He had three turnovers, two fouls, and three rebounds.
