TORONTO -- The Miami Heat are learning to cope without Dwyane Wade this season. Jordan 11 Blue Moon Mens .They also will have to learn how to cope with the Toronto Raptors hot-scoring DeMar DeRozan on Friday when the teams meet for the first time since the second round of the NBA Eastern Conference playoffs.The Heat had Wade then, but he left in the offseason to play for the Chicago Bulls.The Raptors, meanwhile, retained DeRozan, and the shooting guard has scored at least 30 points in each of his first four games this season.He scored 40 points for the second time this season Wednesday when the Raptors defeated the Washington Wizards 113-103 at the Verizon Center. He also hit his only 3-pointer of the season in that game.He gets to the line, so that kind of makes up for him not shooting (3-pointers) because hell probably shoot double-digit free throws, Heat guard Tyler Johnson said. Its definitely rare. I think D-Wade was able to do something similar to that where he would maybe shoot one or two 3s a game but still put up 30.DeRozan is averaging 36.3 points on 55.4 percent shooting this season.The team is built around him, said former Raptors forward James Johnson, now with the Heat. Im not taking anything away from DeMar. Hes a great player. He has 190 moves in his bag, but the team plays around him and they play around him well.The Raptors (3-1) defeated the Heat in seven games in the playoff series in May. Despite dealing with a thumb injury, DeRozan averaged 22.1 points while shooting 38.8 percent in the series.He is playing at another level right now, said Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry, who took three stitches over his right eye in the first half Wednesday. Hes making my life a lot easier and everyone on our teams life a lot easier. Hes saving possessions, hes creating offense.DeRozan said, Im just a student of the game. I work extremely hard in the summer, extremely hard. I try to put everything together, be a student of the game while working, always feeling like Im new to the game so I can soak up as much as possible. I try to release that when I get on the court.Meanwhile, the Heat (2-2) are trying to establish a go-to player when the game is on the line now that Wade is gone.We knew where the ball was going (last year). This year, its whatever matchup we can exploit, said Johnson, who scored nine points in the final five minutes of regulation time and in overtime when the Heat defeated the Sacramento Kings 108-96 Tuesday.What we do have right now is a lot of guys that can attack and make plays, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. The game may dictate how thats played out in the fourth quarter. Those things you have to go through it. You can plan and talk as much as we do behind the scenes, but you have to go through it ultimately, and the team will let you know. Jordan 11 Blue Moon Sunset Moon .C. United of Major League Soccer.

To which I would say two things: 1. Where there is smoke, there is or perhaps has been a little fire. Or, in other words, the two teams would appear to have at least spoken. And spoken is defined as one calling the other to inquire, no more, no less. HOUSTON -- The Texas Rangers trade deadline-day moves bought them a victory Saturday night.Jonathan Lucroy hit two homers, Carlos Beltran had a tiebreaking single and three hits and the Rangers beat the Houston Astros 3-2.Lucroy, Beltran and reliever Jeremy Jeffress were acquired before the trade deadline by the Rangers, and Lucroy hit his first homer with Texas in a 5-3 win Thursday.Theyve shown up huge for us, all three of them, manager Jeff Banister said. Jeffress with the two innings hes thrown for us so far, Lucroy with what you see behind the plate, its All-Star caliber. Frontline caliber. And then at the plate the two home runs tonight, the home run the other night and just the quality of at-bats. And then a future Hall of Famer in my opinion in Beltran. Just as good a hitter as there is in the game.The Rangers improved to 10-2 against the Astros this season and pulled 6 1/2 games ahead of Houston in the AL West.Beltran singled to left off Chris Devenski (0-3) in the seventh to score Shin-Soo Choo and make it 2-1.

This is my third season Ive been that Ive actually played for a team thats really competing. Its really cool and its a lot of fun out there. Makes it easier to play, makes it easier to get us more excited. Just a whole different feeling.Keone Kela (2-1) pitched a perfect sixth inning for the win. Sam Dyson ran into trouble in the ninth, giving up an RBI single to Alex Bregman, but induced a game-ending groundout from Marwin Gonzalez to get his 24th save.Lucas Harrell gave up one run and walked five in 3 2/3 innings, matching his shortest outing of the season. The run came in the first inning when Preston Tucker walked with the bases loaded.Houston left seven ruunners on base through the first three innings against Harrell. Off White Vapormax For Sale. ertainly on our end we had a chance in the first, Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. ... Chance in the second, chance in the third, chance in the fifth, chance in the ninth. Thats a lot of innings to come away with a couple one-run innings. Credit to their guys for walking the fine line, but certainly, we felt like we could have gotten more out of tonight.Jose Altuve was ejected in the seventh for arguing with plate umpire Alan Porter. This is the first time Altuve has been ejected in his career.Doug Fister gave up one run on nine hits, walked two and struck out two in six innings.
