MIAMI – The Toronto Raptors havent defeated the Miami Heat since January 27, 2010, less than five months before the Big Three joined forces in Miami. Thats 14 consecutive losses to the two-time defending champs, and most of them were over before they even began. Result notwithstanding, Sundays game had a very different feel to it. The Raptors believed they had a chance, they felt like they should win and to their credit, they nearly pulled it out. The mentality has changed and so too have the expectations, evident in the visitors locker room after the teams 102-97 loss at AmericanAirlines Arena. "I like the way our guys fought," coach Dwane Casey said after the loss, his teams first in six games. "But, again, you dont get a win or any medals or anything for losing." "I like what our guys are building. I know where we are. Ive said it, I havent wavered from it. I like the direction were going. Were building something [but when] youre playing against the best, youve got to do the little things and there cant be any slippage." Riding a five-game winning streak, which included an impressive victory over the conference-best Pacers, the Raptors never looked out of place against the second-place Heat. They led by as many as nine in the third, up five going into the fourth quarter and had a chance to tie when Kyle Lowry missed a step-back triple with four seconds remaining. The performance validated the legitimacy of their recent success and proved they can compete with the leagues best. That may be a revelation to those who are just tuning in but it comes as no surprise internally, as Lowry firmly pointed out. "We played the Pacers a couple games ago and played them tough, we played the top two teams tough, theres no moral victories at all," said the Raptors point guard, who had 14 points and nine assists in the loss. "We just know we can play with anybody, weve been saying that for a long time. We could play with anybody." "It says a lot," added DeMar DeRozan after scoring a game-high 26. "It says no matter who we play were going to go out there and play hard. People are going to have to worry about us when we come in their building or they come in our building. Were not no scrub team." DeRozan - who was spectacular in the first half, shooting 8-of-10 - made just two of his eight fourth-quarter attempts, forcing tough jumpers. As a team, the Raptors shot 29 per cent in the final frame and went an uncharacteristically terrible 12-of-21 from the line on the night. LeBron James, who was guarded primarily by sophomore Terrence Ross, went off for 30 points on just 18 shots. They gave up 14 offensive boards - including three on one possession - to the worst offensive rebounding team in the league. A month ago Casey may have focused on the positives, the fact that his team hung in with the champs. Its a process, he would say. Now he expects more, a true indication of their evolution and how far theyve come since they dropped a pair of games to the Heat at home in November. "You shoot 57 per cent from the free throw line, youre not going to beat too many people, I dont care if its [the] Miami Heat or Miami-Dade High School," he said. "The 30th offensive rebounding team in the league and they get 14. Thats not acceptable for us. Our interior people have to do a better job of finding bodies." He was especially critical of 21-year-old Jonas Valanciunas, who held his own in the second half after getting off to a slow start against a smaller Heat lineup. "Second half he played much better [but] first half he didnt do anything," Casey said. "A lot of those offensive rebounds were coming over his back. Hes got to dominate, especially against a smaller centre to be effective, to stay in the game." Still, Valanciunas was on the floor down the stretch, along with Ross and the rest of the Raptors starters. Casey comfortably stood his ground, forcing Miami to match-up with him rather than the other way around. Finally, the Raptors are well on their way to developing and, most importantly, maintaining an identity. "Weve all noticed," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said of Torontos improvement before the game. Theres no such thing as a "moral victory" in the NBA. In fact, Casey and company couldnt bear to hear the term after the loss but if Sundays game was a litmus test, as Torontos coach suggested pre-game, than the Raptors came out in pretty good shape. "Were a different team than when we played them before," Casey said ahead of Sundays meeting. "But still, we have to have a healthy amount of respect for the Miami Heat." "Were not thinking that were at the level of the team [we played] tonight, were not there yet, but that is our goal. Were striving to be like the Heat." Jacob Martin Jersey . Bring on Freddy Garcia.

Ryan Miller made 35 saves for the Sabres, who snapped a three-game losing skid. Matt Moulson, Brian Flynn and Steve Ott also scored for Buffalo in the shootout. With his 46th shootout win, Miller took sole possession of the record for most shootout wins in NHL history. The Rangers Henrik Lundqvist has 45. Milan Michalek scored Ottawas goal and Robin Lehner made 35 saves. The Senators shootout scorers were Mika Zibanejad, Kyle Turris and Michalek. Buffalo is 4-0 in games decided by a shootout. Jamie McBain appeared to give the Sabres a second-period lead at the 15:30 mark when Lehner pushed a loose puck into his own net, but referee Tom Kowal ruled that the whistle had blown. The play was reviewed and fans were treated to a replay with the on-ice volume amplified that showed the puck crossing the line before the whistle blew. The NHL released a statement saying there was a delayed penalty on Ottawa which shouldve stopped play when Ottawa touched the puck. The Sabres hadnt played since Saturday and controlled much of the first two periods against a Senators team playing a third game in four nights. Ottawa scored first on a 2-on-1 rush 6:25 into the first period, when Michalek beat Miller for his fifth goal of the season. Bufffalo nearly tied it when Erik Karlsson took a hooking call at the 9:14 mark of the second period, but Lehner made four saves on Buffalos first power play of the night to protect the 1-0 lead.dddddddddddd Girgensons had the game-tying goal. Christian Ehrhoff took a wrist shot that Lehner kicked to his right and Girgensons swatted at the loose puck. It beat Lehner between the legs, hitting each skate before crawling over the goal line. The Sabres had a season-high 18 shots in the second period, and their 29 shots through two periods were more than theyve had in 21 full games. Ottawa controlled the third period as it outshot Buffalo 13-6. Overtime had free-flowing play with scoring chances for both teams. Miller made a sprawling stop on Chris Phillips before McBain was unable to convert two chances in the Ottawa end. Tyler Myers was led off the ice in overtime after taking a Jason Spezza shot to the face. Ehrhoff nearly put the Sabres in front early in the third on a breakaway attempt that fooled Lehner, but went wide of the goal. NOTES: Sabres LW Ville Leino was a healthy scratch for Buffalo. "He didnt practice all that well," Sabres coach Ted Nolan said of Leino, who is goalless in 19 games. "I think were part of our environment. If we dont practice hard, how are you going to play hard?" ... D Eric Gryba and C Mike Hoffman were scratched for Ottawa. ... Mike Weber was again scratched for the Sabres.
