Halfcourt buzzer-beater by Kyle Lowry saves Raptors, forces OT
Kyle Lowry was having a terrible night, but the Toronto Raptors' All-Star point guard made up for it with one shot.
Lowry hit a halfcourt buzzer-beater to force OT on Tuesday night in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Miami Heat.
Lowry was having a nightmare night, missing 10 of 12 shots and all six of his 3s. But he came through in the clutch to cap a frantic comeback and give the Raptors new life.
However, the Heat avoided another meltdown in OT and escaped with a 102-96 win. Lowry finished with a season-low seven points.
FOX Sports' Dieter Kurtenbach has the story behind Lowry's struggles, and writes that they're killing the Raptors in the playoffs.
