The Toronto Raptors-Boston Celtics second-round series is going to a Game 7, after Toronto pulled out a wild Game 6 victory in double overtime on Wednesday night. Trailing 3-2 in the series, the defending champion Raptors came through with a 125-122 victory to keep their season alive.

Toronto’s two stars in the game were Kyle Lowry (33 points) and Norman Powell (23 points off the bench), and they had two huge plays in the final minute of double overtime.

With the Raptors up 118-117, Powell made a terrific defensive play to strip the ball away from Boston’s Jayson Tatum, and he converted an and-one at the other end.

And in the final 15 seconds, Lowry nailed a very difficult fadeaway jumper to put the Raptors up four.

This series feels so evenly matched (between two very good teams), and two overtimes to send the series to a Game 7 pretty much sums that up.

Game 7 will be Friday night at 9:00 p.m. ET on TNT. The Celtics are currently two-point favorites.
