Miami force Game 7 with Raptors

The Miami Heat produced a stunning performance to claim their 10th straight playoff elimination game at home, defeating the Toronto Raptors 103-91 at the American Airlines Arena on Friday.

Kyle Lowry led the visitors with 36 points, and DeMar DeRozan added 23 but it wasn’t enough as Goran Dragic scored a career-playoff-high 30 points.

The 30-year-old proved too strong for his opponents as he made 12-of-21 shots — including six layups and two crucial 3-pointers.

The Raptors, who also set a franchise record with 56 regular-season wins, host the Heat on Sunday in the deciding game of the best-of-seven series.

A Miami victory would give the Heat a matchup against James, who helped the franchise win two NBA titles in four years before heading back to Cleveland in 2014.
