DEMARRE CARROLL FINISHED with 21 points as the Toronto Raptors levelled the Eastern Conference semi-final at 1-1 with a 96-92 overtime win against the Miami Heat last night.

DeMar DeRozan tallied 20 points and eight rebounds and Kyle Lowry finished with 18 points and six assists for the Raptors, who scored six consecutive points to start the overtime and then held on for the victory.

“We decided to be the more physical team tonight in overtime,” said Lowry. “It was a must-win game.

“Even though we had home court it is now 1-1. It is an even series, it is 0-0 in our minds. They’ve got to beat us three times, we’ve got to beat them three times.”

The series moves to Miami’s AmericanAirlines Arena for game three on Saturday.

Goran Dragic led Miami with 20 points, while Dwyane Wade and Joe Johnson had 17 points each in the loss.

The Heat made 21 turnovers that resulted in 24 Toronto points.

“I feel like if we don’t keep committing 20-something turnovers, we will be fine,” said Miami’s Wade.
