Down 3-2, Game 6 was a must-win for the Raptors in order to keep their season alive. It took a herculean effort from Kyle Lowry, who finished with 33 points, eight rebounds and six assists in 53 minutes of play, as well as some clutch play from Norman Powell, but the Raptors were able to outlast the Celtics in double overtime to force a Game 7.
The Raptors will look to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals for the second season in a row when they take on the Celtics in Game 7 on Friday, Sept. 11 at 9:00 p.m.
