That Dwyane Wade shot should do it. But then again, Miami found a way to lose a six-point lead with seven seconds left in regulation. But Heat now pitching a shutout in overtime, up 98-90 with 1:21 remaining.

Michael Wallace ESPN Staff Writer 

Heat open overtime retaking control. Big shots and two strong defensive stands to take 96-90 lead.

Michael Wallace ESPN Staff Writer 

Kyle Lowry was 0-for-6 on 3s before he made that. And the Raptors were 4-for-19 as a team from deep.

Dave Tuley ESPN Staff Writer 

Lyle Lowry hits half-court 3-pointer at buzzer to send Heat-Raptors into overtime. The ViewFromVegas is Toronto closed as a 4-point home favorite (and Raptors backers are given new life to cover) and the total closed at 191.5 (and over bettors also get new life after it looked like a sure under).
