MIAMI — Kyle Lowry had 24 points and 10 assists, Pascal Siakam scored 20 and the Toronto Raptors tied a franchise record Sunday with 21 3-pointers on the way to beating the Miami Heat, 125-104.

Toronto finished with eight players in double figures. Danny Green scored 15 points, all on 3-pointers. Norman Powell also scored 15, and OG Anunoby and Jeremy Lin each scored 11.

“Good weather. The body was warm. It definitely helps,” Lowry said. “But we just came out with a composed mentality. We knew who were going up against and those guys are hard to play.”
