Rudy Gay's first start for the Toronto Raptors produced a big line: 29 points, a three, four rebounds, two assists, three steals and a bock. Toronto lost to the Miami Heat, 100-85, but Air Canada is back with Gay and DeMar DeRozan.

The fourth-year shooting guard really doesn't seem to be hurt by Gay's arrival.
