DeRozan, Drake show confidence in Raptors win

By now you've probably heard the Raptors defeated the Pacers and lead their first-round series 3-2, but we're not finished talking about that fourth-quarter comeback.


The Raptors outscored the Pacers 25-9 in the final quarter to complete the first double-digit comeback in franchise playoff history. In fact, the Raptors were down by as many as 17 but went on a 15-2 run to start the fourth en route to a 102-99 win.


It was almost the comeback that wasn't meant to be, as the Pacers' Solomon Hill sank a 3-pointer that would have tied the game if it wasn't just after the buzzer.


DeMar DeRozan was the somewhat unlikely hero of the game, having been a scapegoat for the Raptors' struggles up until this point of the series. But the NBA All-Star finally came alive, posting 34 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 steal in Game 5.


Raptors'  ̶h̶y̶p̶e̶m̶a̶n̶  Global Ambassador Drake couldn't help but get in on the post-game trash talk and was a noticeable presence on the court during the game.


And though the Jays couldn't get it done across the street, losing 10-1 to the White Sox on Tuesday night, the fans were treated to at least a little good news late in the game when the Raptors score was shown on the jumbotron at Rogers Centre.


Raptors will now head back to Indiana for Game 6 on Friday where a win could put Toronto in the second round of the playoffs for the first time since 2001.
