    Tied game. 12 seconds. Raptors have the ball.

    Announcer goes "3 out of 4 games in this series have gone to overtime -- you can't be closer than that." Umm, 4 out of 4?

    Heat with a 4 point lead half way through OT. Doesn't look good.

    Lowry had fouled out earlier. 4 points down, under a minute to go. Doesn't look good.

    5 points now. 7 points (steal). It's over.

    Well, with Lowry and Derozan being big time chokers, it's surprising they got this far.

    It was incredible that they were a hair away from being up 3-1. It was 83-83 with a shade over 10 seconds to go and they had the ball.

    Suffice it to say, regardless of which teams comes out of this round, they'll get destroyed.

    Toronto's bench is way better than Miami, especially with Bosh out.
    However Dwyane Wade is twice the player Derozan and Lowry are in these playoffs.
    Derozan should be ashamed of his performances so far. It's one thing to miss shots, but there's no excuse on the stupid turnovers he makes.
    Lowry is fine.

    Lowry fouled out with 2 minutes to go. That was not good.

    I'm not a raptors fan but after watching dwayne wade practicing shots during the Canadian national anthem, I hope they mop the floor with the heat the rest of the way. Would give me great pleasure to see Lebron not get to face his buddy like the rest of america wants.

    They also blew a 2nd half lead as per usual.

    They were down 9 at one point, then up 9. Both teams had trouble holding a lead.

    It was a really great effort by the Raptors today. Very impressive, and they shed the choker image.

    It was still close in the 3rd. They poured it on late.
