Heat power past Raptors to tie NBA play-off series
Los Angeles, May 10 (IANS) Dwyane Wade scored 30 points as the Miami Heat evened their second-round play-off series with a 94-87 win over Toronto after overtime.
Goran Dragic had a key three-point play with 22.4 seconds left in overtime. Dragic and Joe Johnson each scored 15 for the Heat, who rallied from a nine-point deficit in the fourth quarter, reports Xinhua. Game 5 is in Toronto on Wednesday.
Wade tied the score with 12 seconds left by driving to the rim for a basket. Toronto had a chance to ice the win in regulation but Cory Joseph missed a 15-foot jump shot at the buzzer.
Toronto, who played without injured center Jonas Valanciunas, got scoring from some unexpected sources — 14 points each from DeMarre Carroll and Joseph.
Bismack Biyombo, who started as a replacement for Valanciunas, tallied a double-double with 13 points and 13 rebounds.
