The Raptors finally got the kind of game they were looking for from their stars but it still went down to the wire in their game five win.
If they can get another performance and victory in game six they will advance to the Conference Finals for the first time in franchise history.
Miami is a proud group and you can bet Dwyane Wade will do everything he can to avoid elimination.
Toronto finally saw their All-Stars take centre stage on Wednesday. Toronto built up a big lead but down the stretch they still had to sweat out the victory.
In the win to get up 3-2 in the series they nearly lost another starter when DeMare Carroll fell hard on his wrist. He is probable.
Kyle Lowry had a very strong game from start to finish. In fact he was dynamite in the first quarter and terrific late. He has had his struggles but his confidence never wavers.
DeMar DeRozan had his best game of the series with a game high 34 points. He too is dealing with a thumb injury but in this one he was finally the efficient scorer we got used to seeing during the regular season.
Also, at home Bismack Biyombo helped set the tone early and was a physical presence throughout the game. They are going to need him to keep the team from shrinking from the action.
The Raptors have never been this close to the Conference Finals. They are a strong team on the road and just might punch their ticket tonight.
Miami was pretty much out of this one from the beginning. Even though they narrowed the gap over the course of the game they never had the lead at any point and now they face elimination.
Miami was without big man Hassan Whiteside and like the Raptors they were down a starter when Luol Deng left the game. Lucky for them their bench really stepped up.
In fact it was the bench that kept them in it really. Josh Richardson scored 13 to lead the way but they got good production from Tyler Johnson, Justise Winslow and
The regular backcourt of Wade and Goran Dragic were badly outplayed by Lowry and DeRozan but I would bet that they will respond with their season in the balance.
Whiteside is out again and Deng is questionable so it is going to be the same cast of characters trying to extend their season. They are playing really small right now.
Miami is at the brink but they are at home and still have Wade so they are far from done for.
