First, the altercation between James Johnson and Serge Ibaka in the third quarter. The two then exchanged punches. Assuming Johnson doesn't appeal the suspension, he will not be available for Wednesday's game vs. Indiana. Next up, on Saturday, also at the ACC, will be the Golden State Warriors, whose run-and-gun three-point mentality has revolutionized the game and put them in the NBA Finals the past three years - each time against Cleveland.

Miami moved to No. 4 in the Eastern Conference with its dramatic 90-89 win over Toronto on Tuesday night at Air Canada Centre.

The NBA also fined the Raptors' DeMar DeRozan 25,000 U.S. dollars and the Heat's Goran Dragic 10,000 United States dollars for an altercation at the end of the game, during which DeRozan attempted to forcefully shove Dragic.

Coach Erik Spoelstra said Derrick Walton Jr., who had been sent back down to G-League affiliate Sioux Falls, was being called up to replace Johnson on the roster. Johnson had four points and three rebounds. Following a stunning Heat victory, DeMar DeRozan and Goran Dragić would get into it.

"He must have thought I was trying to hit him or something after I shot the [final] shot, but I don't know", DeRozan told reporters in his postgame comments.

"Nothing special", Dragic said about the incident, via ESPN.com.

"Ah, nothing special. We just exchanged some words". No DeRozan faces a potential suspension. Point guard Goran Dragic, the smallest man on the floor most of the game, grabbed 12.

In addition to his team-high 20 points on 8-of-16 shooting, Dragić also had a game-high nine assists.

The Heat and Raptors could received discipline from the National Basketball Association for the altercations.
