Game 7 for Celtics-Raptors, and Clippers look to advance

Win or go home.

Six Raptors scored in double figures, led by Kyle Lowry with 33 points.

With the Miami Heat waiting in the wings, the Celtics vs Raptors odds are pretty tight. Chinese and Russian forces will take part in joint military exercises in southern Russia later in September along with troops from Armenia, Belarus, Iran, Myanmar, Pakistan and others, China's defense ministry announced Sept. 10, 2020.

"That's fine. We're heading into a Game 7. I just want to win tomorrow".

If you're wondering why it's so hard to oust a team with championship DNA, look no further than the Raptors' effort in Game 6. Norm Powell got into the game and made himself indispensable, playing 38 minutes and coming up with 23 huge, necessary bench points. Leonard grabbed a game-high 14 rebounds and added a team-best six assists. Of course, his turnaround jumper in double OT was the clincher.

Nurse stood just outside the makeshift interview room, which doubles as a Zoom conference room for reporters not inside the bubble. A tie, even though Lowry, VanVleet and Siakam had combined for 9-for-29 shooting.

It didn't come without near heart attack for Raptors' fans, though. They trailed in the fourth quarter. But Powell emerged as a go-to guy at the end, scoring 15 points in overtime, giving Toronto the final push to finish the game. Nonetheless, as we analyze the performance of the Duke players still remaining in the playoffs, it's important to remember the messages about social justice and racial equality that the players hope their platform will raise.

In contrast, Disney canned its plan for a big-screen release of Mulan , preferring instead to run it on digital platforms. In China, Tenet earned U.S. 30 million and was just behind The Eight Hundred , the Chinese war epic.

Boston's young stars struggled down the stretch. Kemba Walker, Tatum and Marcus Smart each shot 1-for-6 from three and Jaylen Brown was just 2-for-11, largely thanks to Siakam locking him down.

Leonard just missed his first career National Basketball Association play-off triple double with 30 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists to spark the Clippers, who can advance with a victory today.

Although Houston was ultimately able to close out against Oklahoma City in a tense two point win on Wednesday evening, Austin Rivers continued his cold streak, going a combined 0-for-7 and 0-for-5 from three point range in the last two games of the series.

From Boston's perspective, the playoff demons from the 2018 Eastern Conference Finals Game 7 have to be in the back of their heads.

Outside of DeMar DeRozan (51), Lowry has started in more than twice as many playoff games (82) than any player in franchise history.

"We have to find a way". "I don't think those shots could have been more open".

That probably carries more weight than the fatigue. He made some big ones for sure.
