The Raptors took an impressive victory against the Heats in a game that was for the infarction with three extra times.

The scoreboard had twists and turns, but Fred VanVleet’s two three-pointers were fundamental when the third OT was played at the FTX Arena in Miami: first for Toronto to tie and then, with a dunk by OG Anunoby in the middle, for Toronto complete a five-point lead.

Miami Heat had Jimmy Butler as their leader and became the day’s leading scorer with a triple-double of 37 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists, but it was not enough to avoid defeat.

Toronto started the game better and led the first three quarters with runs of 28-27, 31-26 and 26-22, but fell asleep in the last quarter and ended up giving up a huge lead with a run against 15-25.

When it seemed that the scoreboard would get out of the hands of the Raptors, Gary Trent Jr. shot 3 and the ball bounced to deny him a forward pass on points, ignoring that his coach had signaled a timeout that might It meant a good move to sentence the comeback.

The match ended in a draw and the first overtime left a quiet 5-5 on the scoreboard, while the second was tied at 9 and in the third Toronto could take off with a 10-6 run.

Trent Jr. led Miami Heat with 33 points, followed by Scottie Barnes with 22 points, while Pascal Siakam‘s double-double -21 points and 13 rebounds- and Anunoby with 20 points and 14 rebounds were key.

The victory put Toronto Raptors just above the Boston Celtics in eighth place in the Eastern Conference.

Miami Heat remains the leader of the same classification despite the defeat and accumulates three losses in the last ten games.
