Tyler Johnson scratched from lineup; Heat pushing Ellington for 3-point contest

The Miami HEAT defeated the Indiana Pacers 114-106 Wednesday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

-Goran Dragic lead the Heat again with 20 points and nine assists.

From the very beginning, it was pedal to the metal for Goran Dragić. More than that, Miami is 8-2 over their last 10. Dragic netted 24 points and had 12 rebounds, while DeRozan had a game-high 25 points for the Raptors. He got off to a quick start by scoring Miami's first six points.

Even with Whiteside returning to the fold recently, head coach Erik Spoelstra has often left him on the bench to close out games as he puts his trust in Olynyk to play at center because it allows them to play a more free-flowing style.

What a stuff on Domantas Sabonis.

Talk about a complete effort.

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.

Well, "The Man With The Golden Arm" got it done late once again, but it wasn't a game victor and it came off a more traditional look for him.

Tyler Johnson, meanwhile, went off in the fourth quarter with 10 points on 4-of-5 shooting thanks to a few threes of his own and some nice finishes at the rim. Stephenson wound up with 15 points, eight rebounds and four assists.

The injuries to those two has allowed others to step up and take extra responsibility as the likes of Josh Richardson, Kelly Olynyk and Wayne Ellington have flourished.

The Cavaliers (26-14) are coming off a 127-99 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday - their largest margin of defeat this season - and have dropped two of the first three games of a five-game road trip.

It was an intense matchup by every definition considering the nature of the game at that point. That's a marked increase from the 24.8 per cent of overall scoring from long-distance shots a year ago.

The shooting guard signed a deal with the Miami Heat ahead of the 2016-17 National Basketball Association season, marking the seventh team he's played for in his career.
