Takeaways from the Miami Heat's practice today in Toronto: 1. Dwyane Wade and Hassan Whiteside received extensive treatment for sore knees on Wednesday but both expect to play in Game 2 Thursday. 2. In response to LeBron James' thoughts of facing Miami in the conference finals, Wade said he's got bigger issues to deal with right now north of the border against the Raptors. 3. Luol Deng makes a pretty mean cold cut sandwich, so much so that it's apparently helped turn Goran Dragic's game around in these playoffs.
