Citing a need for "someone in the middle," Miami Heat President Pat Riley on Friday traded forward Shawn Marion and point guard Marcus Banks to the Toronto Raptors for center Jermaine O'Neal, forward Jamario Moon and a future first-round pick. "Somewhere you've got to get honest with yourself and say if you're going to compete with the big boys, you need someone in the middle," Riley said. "It was the best move for now, competitively. And it sweeps the table for 2010." The trade provides the height-challenged Heat with a proven post presence in O'Neal, a five-time All Star and a definite upgrade on Jamaal Magloire, Joel Anthony and Mark Blount.

Tosh Lupoi, a former Washington defensive line coach who is under investigation by the NCAA for allegedly violating rules while working as an assistant to Steve Sarkisian, will receive $300,000 as part of a mutual separation with the school, a Washington spokesman said. The allegations, first reported by The Times, surround the recruitment of defensive lineman Andrew Basham, who signed a letter of intent with the Huskies in February 2013 but did not qualify academically to enroll.

Reporting from Miami — Chris Bosh spun on Carlos Boozer, leapt, threw down a two-handed dunk and pounded his chest with both fists as he turned upcourt in the midst of Miami's fourth-quarter run. The overlooked member of the Heat's Big 3 was even more impressive Sunday night than in his 30-point performance in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals against Chicago. The Bulls made that effort in the series opener insignificant. This time, Bosh's 34 points carried Miami to a 96-85 victory at AmericanAirlines Arena that gave the Heat a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series.

OKLAHOMA CITY — Somewhere between a 13-point second-quarter lead and an 11-point loss, it became blindingly obvious. There might not be enough players for the Miami Heat to win a championship. The Heat basically went with a six-man rotation in a 105-94 loss Tuesday to Oklahoma City in Game 1 of the NBA Finals, an issue still being debated a day later. It was the first question reporters posed to Miami Coach Erik Spoelstra before the Heat began practice Wednesday.

American sprinters who were stripped of their 2000 Olympics relay medals because teammate Marion Jones was doping won an appeal Friday to have them restored. The Court of Arbitration for Sport in Geneva ruled in favor of the women, who had appealed the International Olympic Committee's decision to disqualify them from the Sydney Games. The court said the IOC and International Assn. of Athletics Federations rules in 2000 did not allow entire teams to be disqualified because of doping by one athlete.

Where did that come from? The work-in-progress Miami Heat and the young Chicago Bulls, who were looking more like Incomplete and Incompleter, reached back into time for the kind of shootout that superstars like Magic Johnson, Larry Bird and a newcomer named Michael Jordan had in the '80s. In numbers, it was only 35 points for LeBron James and 23 for Derrick Rose, coming back from a two-for-11 start. In great, clutch plays as the lead changed hands four times in the last 2:10 of regulation, it was breathtaking.

It will be billed by many as good versus evil. But in so many ways, the NBA Finals matchup between the likable Oklahoma City Thunder and what has become the unlikable Miami Heat will be hyped as a series that will be defined by the team's two superstars. The Thunder's Kevin Durant has developed into one of the game's best players who is well-liked. The Heat's LeBron James remains one of the NBA's top players who still is a polarizing figure cast as a villain since taking his talents to South Beach.

If Joel Anthony of the Heat is now called "The Warden" . . . was he able to put Blake Griffin in lockup Sunday? "No, I wouldn't say all that," said the soft-spoken Anthony. "I was just out there doing my job.
