The Toronto Raptors completed another come from behind win on Wednesday night against the Miami Heat, 106-104.

Serge Ibaka returned from injury to play his first game since losing to the Denver Nuggets on December 16. Kyle Lowry sat out with a back injury, and Chris Boucher also missed the game with a left ankle sprain.

Ibaka scored 6 points, while Kawhi Leonard lead scoring with 30 points. Danny Green had 18 and hit four three-pointers, Fred VanVleet also had four three-pointers, and finished with 16. Pascal Siakam had a near double-double with 10 points and nine rebounds.

Justise Winslow led Heat scoring with 21 points, Hassan Whiteside recorded a double-double as he scored 16 points and grabbed 12 boards. Josh Richardson scored 17, former Raptor James Johnson scored 12.

Kawhi Leonard played hard in the paint and was rewarded, as he went 10-11 from the free throw line.

Delon Wright may not be seeing many minutes so far this season, but always performs well when his name is called.

The last time Toronto played in Florida, Danny Green hit the game winner. Wednesday night proved to be no different as Green hit the game winner with a three-pointer.

Toronto will stay in the state of Florida as they go up against the Orlando Magic on Friday night at Amway Center. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m.
