Raptors Knot Things Up Against Cavs
TORONTO (AP)_The Toronto Raptors are alive and well in the NBA playoffs.
It's all even in the NBA Eastern Conference finals, thanks to the Raptors All-Star backcourt duo. Kyle Lowry had 35 points and backcourt mate DeMar DeRozan added 32 as the Raptors tied the series at two games apiece with a 105-99 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers.
It was amazing the game was this close. Cleveland made just three of 22 shots in the first half, for an icy 13.6 percent shooting percentage
The Raptors led early by as many as 18 in this seesaw game. But the Cavs erased that deficit and took a brief lead before the Raptors regained their composure behind their veteran guards.
Bismack Biyombo (bee-AHM'-boh) followed up his 26-rebound performance in Game 3 Saturday night with 14 boards in this one. The Raptors are 8-2 at home and 2-6 on the road in this postseason.
Game 5 is Wednesday night in Cleveland.
