Raptors move on to first conference finals

<p>The Toronto Raptors made it through to the Eastern Conference Finals, thanks to a 116-89 win over the Miami Heat at the Air Canada Centre on Sunday.</p> <p>Kyle Lowry produced yet another <span class="caps">MVP</span> performance to lead the winners with 35 points while DeMar DeRozan added 28 points on 29 shots. </p> <p>Slovenian guard Goran Dragic proved unstoppable in the third quarter but it was too little too late as Bismack Biyombo stepped it up a gear in the fourth to help the Raptors become the 15th team in <span class="caps">NBA</span> history to win two Game 7s in one postseason. </p> <p>The victory puts Toronto in the Eastern Conference final for the first time in franchise history, against the Cavaliers. The series starts on Tuesday in Cleveland.</p> <p><blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en-gb"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">"I enjoyed it man.
