Refs say they missed late foul on Waiters

Raptors GM Masai Ujiri told SportsNet 590 radio about Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan's shooting struggles: "It can't go on forever, they're just too good for it to go on forever." Toronto became just the second team in NBA history to win a playoff series with both its top two scorers shooting under 33 percent, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. Ujiri was the latest to credit Indiana's George Hill and Paul George for their great defense on the All-Star backcourt.

Quote of the night from Richard Jefferson: "You can always try and find a silver lining, but I'd rather be Negative Nancy. Whenever you get a team to 15 points, they are almost dead. When you get it to 18, all you've got to do is lift the shovel up and pour dirt on 'em, especially if you want to be a high-level team. We didn't do that tonight and it almost cost us."
