While the Raptors seemed to struggle after a 111-89 Game 5 loss, Kyle Lowry led the Raptors to a 125-122 double-OT victory, which pushed a Game 7. Whichever team wins will face the Miami Heat (who beat the top-seeded Milwaukee Bucks) in the Eastern Conference Finals. While the Raptors are defending champions, this could be the Celtics' third ECF appearance in four seasons.
During a postgame interview, Raptors guard Fred VanVleet spoke about how everyone expected it to be a long series. While Kyle Lowry wowed with his 33 points in 53 minutes, Norman Powell pushed the Raptors to victory with his three-pointer with 38.8 seconds left. "He saved us. He saved our season," VanVleet said. Kemba Walker struggled offensively in Game 6 but Jaylen Brown stepped up for the Celtics with 31 points and 16 rebounds. Marus Smart and Jayson Tatum added 23 and 29 points.
