Dwane Casey needs an offensive coordinator. Like, in the worst way.

Goran Dragic is cooking. His jumper apparently made it through customs. What a turnaround for a guy who was essentially in the dumps midway through the Charlotte series. Heat with their largest lead at 75-65 early in the fourth.

Heat go up by 10 with 9:50 left in the fourth. Goran Dragic has outscored Kyle Lowry 23-2. Raptors in trouble as they've had trouble getting easy looks on offense.

Here are some characteristics Carmelo Anthony's looking for in a coach: "Being able to hold guys accountable, but also having a relationship with the player. Kind of seeing things from a players' perspective as well as a coach's perspective," Anthony said in an interview with Complex.com. "I think if you can build that camaraderie between a coach and a player, I think you're onto something."

Dwyane Wade has nine of his 13 points in the third and the Heat have a 60-57 lead. Kyle Lowry finally hit a jumper for his first points.

Carmelo Anthony explains why he'd like to be kept in the loop on the Knicks' coaching search: "You gotta think about it, this is gonna be a long-term journey of playing and you consider me being part of that plan then I would want to know what's going on," he told Complex.com last week. As of last Thursday, Anthony hadn't spoken to team president Phil Jackson about the coaching search.

Eleven turnovers, including 3 shot-clock violations, two missed dunks and 38.1 percent shooting from the field - yet the Heat have to feel good about trailing only 43-41 at the half. Goran Dragic leads with 8 points, but is just 3-for-10 from the field.

Raptors 43 Heat 41 at the half. Toronto will look at this as a bit of a missed opportunity to build a significant lead. Miami is shooting 38.1 percent with 11 turnovers and Dwyane Wade has four points on 2-for-7 shooting. Kyle Lowry is scoreless, has missed all four of his jumpers and has one rebound and one assists in 18 minutes. Jonas Valanciunas has 14 points and six rebounds for Toronto.

Phil Jackson just tweeted a photo of a Thai restaurant in Sioux City, Iowa. Hopefully, this is where the Knicks' president is interviewing candidates for the club's coaching vacancy.

Carmelo Anthony reiterated that he'd like to see the Knicks speak to several available candidates before they hire their next head coach. Phil Jackson has spoken to Luke Walton and David Blatt about the opening. Interim coach Kurt Rambis remains a strong candidate. Other than that, it is unclear who Jackson has talked to. "I just want to see the proper procedure gone through, the proper process," Anthony said in an interview with Complex.com. "We give everybody a shot to come in and say what they have to say and see if you like that person or not."
