Deng just relentless moving the ball, and driving close-outs. Surviving Whiteside foul trouble. Kemba was unbelievable. Playoff basketball.

That was a "find a way" win for Heat. Every possession was a grind-- Dragic going around screens 2- 3 times to find anything. Wade 3s. Wow.

Raptors G DeMar DeRozan on how his team will respond in Game 7 after the Game 6 blowout: "You can't make it seem like a funeral. It's a chance for us to compete at the highest level at what we love to do and it's an opportunity for us to do it on our home court."

Austin Rivers on the floor after taking an elbow to the face. He's back in the locker room now. Pablo Prigioni is in the game.

Now it looks like only break the Clippers can get might be of Austin Rivers' nose, after he got off to a hot start. Just ugly.

Miami & Indiana find a way to get to game 7 / Heat beat Hornets & Pacers stop Raptors / Heat & Raptors will move on

Austin Rivers got an elbow to the face on that last play and is on the floor bleeding.

Raptors F DeMar DeRozan: "This season will be a failure if we don't get out of the first round."

Raptors G Kyle Lowry continues to dismiss anything about his elbow while giving credit to Indiana for defending him well.

Final: Heat 97, Hornets 90. Dwyane Wade scores 10 of his 23 in the fourth quarter, including his first 3-pointers of 2016, to make sure this series will be decided on Miami's turf if not Miami's terms. Game 7 on Sunday.

A huge hug from Chris Bosh for Dwyane Wade, who pushes the Heat to a Game 7 through sheer force of will. (And some nice 3s)

Dave Tuley ESPN Staff Writer 

Heat beat Hornets 97-90 to force a decisive Game 7. The ViewFromVegas is they did it as 2-point road underdogs and +110 on the money line. The game stayed under the betting total of 192.
