Raptors G Kyle Lowry is the first player to ever shoot under 40 percent in each of the first six games of a playoff season, per Elias Sports Bureau. Lowry is doing it in other areas but he hasn't been able to find the range. A sore right elbow he hasn't made excuses about could be the culprit.

Luke Walton agreed to be Lakers' coach

The team and Walton have reached an agreement on a multi-year contract for the 36-year-old to become the next head coach of the team. He'll begin his duties at the end of the Warriors' season.

Goran Dragic finally gets an offensive breakthrough in the third quarter, scoring 8 of his 10 points in the period to keep Heat ahead 75-70 entering the fourth. Dragic was 1-for-6 before he got going. This was huge for his confidence after being essentially the fourth most effective point guard in this series the past few games (Kemba, Lin and Richardson have had more of a recent impact).

Charlotte not getting many looks from 3 (3-for-12 tonight) and also not getting the penetration it got in the past two games in Charlotte to offset it. The Hornets are shooting 21-for-22 from the free-throw line and have just 4 turnovers, but Jeremy Lin, their best offensive player, this series, is 0-for-7 for 6 points. Heat up 75-70 heading into the fourth.

Good note from ESPN Stats and Info: "Pacers shot 5-of-18 outside the paint in the first half. Pacers shot 6-of-10 outside the paint in the third quarter."

Don't have to worry about Paul George playing all 48 when the Pacers are up 28 points in the 4th. The All-Star checks out to a big ovation.

Sure seemed like Pacers’ 4Q of Game 5 carried into this. If Raptors bring this 4Q to Game 7 + “Uh oh, not again” vibe in Toronto….
