Raptors’ Bismack Biyombo had it going early, including a couple blocks (VIDEO)
The Toronto Raptors raced out to a 23-8 lead against the Miami Heat in Game 5 Wednesday night (a lead that was still 10 at the half), and while there are a number of reasons for that — like Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan hitting shots for a change — there was one fundamental difference from Game 4.
For reasons only Dwane Casey knows, Biyombo sat during the final minutes of regulation and all of overtime in Game 4, but he started in Game 5 and had a huge impact. While he had 10 first half points, it was his defense in the paint that was the biggest difference. Check out his first quarter blocks.
