The NBA suspended the Heat'sJames Johnson and Toronto's Serge Ibaka for one game each following Tuesday night's game in which the two were involved in a fight.
Wayne Ellington's driving layup with 0.3 seconds remaining gave the Miami Heat a dramatic 90-89 win over the Toronto Raptors to end their 12-game winning streak at home. They both got in another shot before being separated. Ibaka will serve his suspension Thursday night when the Raptors host the Cleveland Cavaliers. DeRozan was fined $25,000.

Neither specs or renders for the speaker have been released, and as such, there's not a whole lot we can say about it right now. It will work with all generations of Dish's Hopper DVR, all models of its Joey client, and its Wally single-tuner HD receiver.
Ibaka ($138,357) and Johnson ($96,172) will lose close to $250,000 in salary based on the one-game suspensions. In the midst of it, Johnson made a decision to throw the first punch and hit Serge in the face, before Ibaka retaliated and punched him right back. The technical was Johnson's first this season.
James Johnson's absence could leave the Heat with 10 available players tonight, but just six from the regular rotation. The Heat already are without Dion Waiters (sprained left ankle), Justise Winslow (strained left knee), Rodney McGruder (left tibia surgery) and Okaro White (left foot surgery). Twitter user Ry_Nguyen's video shows the similarity on both plays in a clip he posted on the social media platform. He followed that up two days later with a game-high 35 points in a victory over Chicago and added 20 points in a win over the Bucks last Friday.
