Friday’s game

Raptors 102, Wizards 92


Toronto overcame a halftime deficit in a road playoff game for the first time in 24 tries, using 24 points from Kyle Lowry and a tremendous effort from their finally whole second unit to beat Washington in Game 6. Toronto trailed by as many as 12 points in the first quarter and was down 53-50 at halftime. The Raptors’ first lead did not come until the third quarter, and they were back down by five points entering the final period. But with star guards Lowry and DeMar DeRozan, who had a personal series-low 16 points, resting to begin the fourth, reserves led by point guard Fred VanVleet turned around the game with five points, four assists and four rebounds.
