LeBron James 10-16 FG | 9-12 FT | 8 REB | 7 AST | 30 PTS | +29

He seemed a little disinterested in the early going but was perhaps just feeling out these new Raptors. As the Raptors got confident, James worked at both ends and headed to the line and rim at will to put them in their place.

Dwyane Wade 10-18 FG | 3-4 FT | 5 REB | 5 AST | 23 PTS | +21

Wade had a fair enough offensive game, scoring 23 points on 19 attempts, but the Raptors wings also targeted him with drives when they could get away from defending LeBron James.

Chris Bosh 12-19 FG | 3-3 FT | 5 REB | 5 AST | 28 PTS | +17

Bosh wasn't great in help defense, but that was about the only criticism you could throw at him. He went 12-of-19 from the field for 28 points, including the dagger 3-pointer with under three minutes to go. It was a very efficient offensive display, reminding Raptors fans what they lost.

Ray Allen 0-2 FG | 0-1 FT | 1 REB | 2 AST | 1 PTS | -10

Ray Allen was also attacked on the defensive end but managed just a single point to make up for it. He's been struggling of late, but this game is a bigger concern than the loss in Indiana since Toronto's DeMar DeRozan didn't seem all that interested in guarding him.

Rudy Gay 11-23 FG | 6-7 FT | 4 REB | 2 AST | 29 PTS | -9

The newest Raptor scored 20 points in the first half on 9-of-12 shooting but went just 2-of-11 in the second half, struggling to 29 points. The Heat left him open for 3s and he only managed to hit 1 of 5, but all in all he showed why the Raptors organization (if not the blogosphere) was so excited when Toronto acquired him.
