Final: Raptors 89 Pacers 84. For the first time since May 4, 2001 Toronto is headed to the second round of the playoffs. They almost blew it but were able to hang on. DeMar DeRozan 30 points.

DeMar DeRozan hits a pair at the free throw line. Two possession game. Raptors about to escape, it appears.

After Indiana closed within three, Kyle Lowry responded with a driving left-handed layup. Raptors up 87-82 with 1:49 left. Tense times in Toronto.

Mike Mazzeo ESPN Staff Writer 

Paul George just picked up an offensive foul -- his fourth personal -- after getting a steal and going to the rim with a chance to get Indiana within six. Raptors have led by as many as 16. Feels like this thing is coming down to the wire. Never easy.

Nick Friedell ESPN Staff Writer 

No matter how the end of this game plays out, ESPN Stats and Info notes that Paul George has set a new Pacers record for most points in a single playoff series. George has 189 points with 4:22 left in Game 7. The old record was Reggie Miller's 181 points during the 1995 Eastern Conference finals.
