Jimmy Butler's triple-double leads Heat past Raptors 121-110 in OT


"In this locker room, in this organization, this is where we're supposed to win," he said of handing the Raptors this first home loss, at the Heat matched the franchise's best 20-game start at 15-5.


The Raptors fought back to a one-point lead before Butler closed out the scoring in the fourth quarter with a free throw to leave it tied 108-108 at the end of regulation.


The only other Heat players to record a triple-double, with one apiece, were Dragic, Lamar Odom, Shaquille O'Neal, Billy Owens, Steve Smith and Rory Sparrow.


Both sides: Coming off a game when Brooklyn barely paid attention to him, Adebayo came out with 12 first-half points, to help fuel the Heat to a 58-53 halftime lead.


After being inactive in Sunday's return from his 10-game suspension for what the Heat termed "conduct detrimental to the team," Waiters was in uniform for the first time.


He previously was listed as active against the Houston Rockets and Phoenix Suns, but remained in the locker room during those games.
