Kyle Lowry scored 33 points, including five straight to break a late tie, in a duel with Dwyane Wade to lift the Raptors to a 95-91 victory over the Heat on Saturday night in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series.

Lithuanian Toronto center Jonas Valanciunas who had his 10th career playoffs double double (16 p., 10 r.) limped off with a sprained ankle in the third quarter, and he’ll be listed as day-to-day. But the Heat maybe lost much more given that center Hassan Whiteside will have an MRI on Sunday to determine how much damage he did to his right knee in a second-quarter tumble.

Wade had 38 points for Miami, Slovenian guard Goran Dragic scored 12 points and British forward Luol Deng added 4.

In Portland, Damian Lillard had a playoff-best 40 points, and the Trail Blazers beat Golden State 120-108 on Saturday to cut the Warriors‘ advantage in the Western Conference semifinal series to 2-1.
