(SportsNetwork.com) - The Miami Heat will be on the road for the next five games, starting with Fridays encounter with the Milwaukee Bucks. The Heat will also make stops in Memphis, Phoenix, Denver and Utah, and have lost two straight and three of their last four games. Miami suffered a 112-102 loss to the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday and were led by Dwyane Wades 28 points, seven assists and two steals. Chris Bosh had 27 points and 11 rebounds, and Mario Chalmers chipped in 19 points and a game- best 11 assists. For the most part, the effort is there, Wade said. I think we have to be a little bit smarter. The Heat shot 56.3 percent from the floor, but committed 19 turnovers for 23 Atlanta points. They fell to 5-2 this season when scoring 100 or more points and are now 5-1 when making 50 percent or better from the field. Wade has scored 20 or more points in seven straight games and has shot at least 50 percent in the past nine. In injury news for the Heat, guard Norris Cole (illness) is questionable Friday and forward Luol Deng (hand) is doubtful. Miami is 5-3 away from south Florida this season. Milwaukee will try to put the brakes on a three-game slide and is coming off Wednesdays 107-105 loss to Dallas. Mavs guard Monta Ellis buried the game- winning jumper as time expired. The Bucks shot a season-high 62.5 percent in the first half, but made 25 percent from the field in the third quarter and scored 14 points. Brandon Knight tied the game at 105-105 with 8.9 seconds to go, but Ellis knocked down a shot over O.J. Mayo to win it. It was a tough shot, he made it, said Bucks coach Jason Kidd. Thats how basketball goes. Knight paced the Bucks with 25 points and Khris Middleton registered 21 points off the bench. Mayo had 12 points in a losing effort. Milwaukee, which lost by three at Cleveland on Tuesday, has dropped three straight following a three-game winning streak and will play six of the next seven games on the road. The Bucks will visit Dallas on Sunday. The Bucks have a young roster and will take on a veteran Miami group with Wade and Bosh. Knight leads Milwaukee with 17.9 points and rookie Jabari Parker is second with 12.2 ppg. Miami dropped a 91-84 decision to the Bucks at home on Nov. 16, as Knight led six players in double figures with 20 points and Milwaukee halted a five-game slide in the series. Chalmers had 18 points in that one to pace the Heat, who did not have Wade and are still 11-5 in the previous 16 games in this series The Heat, who went 3-0 against Milwaukee last season, have won two straight and 10 of the past 15 games at the Bradley Center.

Today is the eve of many a Big Dance dream being shattered and powerhouses upset as conference tournaments and, for some, college careers end before Selection Sunday. Canadian Junior Mens and Ryerson Rams Mens head basketball coach Roy Rana is no stranger to winning on almost every level, having been instrumental in the growth of some of the top players who will play in the 2014 NCAA Tournament . I sat down with Coach Rana to better understand his journey and connection to eras past, present and future in Canadian basketball, as we all prepare to fill out brackets for a chance at a cool billion of Warren Buffetts dollars, win office pools, while giving the impression of productivity at work, and cheer on our favorite teams. Is perception about the level of play/competition in Canadian high school ball changing at all? Dramatically. There is a serious respect internationally for the talent we produce here. It used to feel like people looked at Canada as a third-world basketball country, but I believe weve answered a lot of questions there. There is a general perception that the level is down, mostly because many of our best head off to Findlay [Prep] in Vegas or other prep schools in the US for higher end competition and visibility. But many credible, hard-working, talented young players are making names for themselves in this country, too. By scheduling perennially exceptional NCAA teams like Wisconsin and Syracuse for his Ryerson Rams to test their mettle, Roy Rana continues to strengthen the program with an unyielding commitment to basketball in this country. Coach Ranas ability to mold young talent was never more evident than when he led the Cadet National team to a bronze medal finish, the highest honor a Canadian team has ever achieved at the U-16 World Championships last year in Uruguay. What made that cadet team so special? Canada had never fielded that age group before for international play. Expectations were low. We just wanted to give our young guys a chance to compete on the international stage. They were a very exceptional group: so strong… focused… selfless… no egos whatsoever. The way they shared the ball and played the right way was great for us. What gets you most excited about the future of the Canadian National Team system? The depth of our talent. Were young and will take some lumps early, but the experiences will help us grow. What are some things youd like to see changed? We just have to keep working, at every level: Senior National, Junior National, Cadet… every level. We have to stay hungry and never get complacent. Are the 2016 Rio Olympics a realistic goal? Its going to be challenging. Not many have expectations for us to do well. The experience we gain internationally in developing our system is a huge factor. Well take our best shot and see where we land. In addition to major coaching success internationally, Coach Rana also helped the World Select Team to back-to-back titles at the 2012 and 2013 Nike Hoop Summit vs. the USA Basketball Mens Junior National Select Team. Beating any US team in a major basketball tournament is serious. You did it twice in a row. How? Young men like Andrew Wiggins, Dante Exum, who will be incredible, as well as the multitalented Dario Saric. If you havent heard of Exum and Saric, you will soon enough. With very little practice time together, they gelled well enough and played with the kind of effort any basketball ffan would respect.dddddddddddd The journey thus far has taken Roy Rana all over the world, but dreams of a higher station in life and through coaching are real. To what college coach would you compare your style? Thats a great question. Ive never really thought about it. Honestly, I couldnt tell you. I really love what Billy Donovan does at Florida. Im a big fan of Bo Ryan at Wisconsin, Bill Self at Kansas. Really admire Gregg Marshall at Wichita State for what hes done with that program. Hard to compare… These guys are in a different world. With all of your international experience, have you ever thought about coaching abroad, say in the US, Europe or other basketball-developing ports? Man, I always dream about learning more about my coaching abilities in different situations and circumstances. I wouldnt rule out the possibilities, but I love the city of Toronto and this country. I am blessed for what I have now and the jobs in front of me at Ryerson and within the Canadian National Team system. What about the NBA? Thats the ultimate dream, you know? Just to be able to touch that level, contribute in my way would be incredible. It would definitely have to be the right situation… right fit… What is Roy Ranas ultimate coaching goal? Max out completely with what I have before me now. Everything is about my team. Any and everything else that comes my way will be as a result of efforts of a great many people, not just me alone. At some level, Roy Rana has coached scores of players who will be chasing the NCAA Mens Basketball Championship. Pinning down his favorite player or team was difficult, but enlightening as Coach Rana showed Canadian love across the board. Best player in the country is…? Well, Doug McDermott (Creighton), with all hes done with his career, is probably the most worthy, but its tough to pick a "best player" in the country. There are close to 10 guys in that conversation. Three Canadians in Andrew [Wiggins], Tyler [Ennis] and Nik [Stauskas]… Joel Embiid, Jabari Parker, Marcus Smart, Julius Randle. Its very tough. Should Andrew Wiggins really stay at Kansas for another year of seasoning? No. If youre a top-three lottery pick and you know it, why not go? Sure, you sacrifice a bit of that college experience, which Im sure is special to him, but if the NBA thinks youre That Guy, you go, no question. Is Tyler Ennis ready to run an NBA team now? No, probably not right now. Can he come in at what 19, 20 and be a contributor immediately? Absolutely. But over time in a couple years, I believe hell be more than capable of running a team in the NBA quite well. Name your All-Canadian NCAA team. Can I have two first teams (laughs)? All of these young guys are great, but Id go with Ennis, Wiggins, [Melvin] Ejim (Iowa State), Khem Berch (UNLV) and Nik Stauskas, who had a fantastic season. I coached all of them at some point, so I dont want to leave anyone out. All had incredible years in their own right: Daniel Mullings (New Mexico State), Kevin Pangos (Gonzaga), Jordan Bachynski (Arizona State), Dwight Powell (Stanford)… Whos that darkhorse Canadian who will shine in March Madness? DyShawn Pierre of Dayton. He fills the stats sheet. Hes exciting, can do it all, multi-talented. I believe he can win a game virtually on his own in the tournament. DyShawn has real NBA potential. Who do you think will make the Final Four? Hopefully, four teams with Canadians on them. Then itll be real tough for me to pick a team to win it all! I wish all the young people well, but I cheer for the Canadians!
