TORONTO， May 1 (Xinhua) -- Toronto Raptors edged out Indiana Pacers in an 89-84 victory in the seventh and deciding game of their first-round playoff series on Sunday evening NBA action.
The series victory is Toronto's first since a 3-2 first-round victory over New York Knicks in 2001 when the opening round series were five games instead of seven.
This is the second time Toronto have won a playoff series and the first time winning a seven-game series. The franchise had lost their previous seven-game series to Wizards (2015)， Nets (2014)， Magic (2008)， Nets (2007) and Sixers (2001).
""I think everybody wrote us off. I read about how Indiana was going to win and Raptors weren't going to get through this (game and series)，"" said Raptors head coach Dwane Casey following the win in Toronto. ""I thought our guys used that as motivation， used it as a fuel to fight， to scrap. That locker room is full of fighters and scrappers and guys that are really getting into it.""
During the game， All-Star DeMar DeRozan scrapped and managed to score a game-high 30 points despite shooting 10-for-32 (31 percent) from the field.
""I didn't know he had 32 attempts，"" said Casey， ""He was playing freer. I thought he got his swagger and rhythm back.""
DeRozan was a perfect 9-for-9 from the free throw line， including a pair in the final seconds to put the game out of reach. Prior to the final seconds， Raptors allowed Indiana to make a 15-2 run to cut the lead to three points twice.
Toronto managed to score only 11 points in the final frame， the fewest fourth quarter points by a Game 7 winner since the shot clock was introduced in 1954.
Despite the struggles， Casey is hopeful that DeRozan and All-Star teammate Kyle Lowry will both loosen up in the next round and perform close to their regular season level.
During the seven-games series against Pacers， DeRozan and Lowry averaged 17.9 and 13.9 points per game， compared to 23.5 and 21.2 during the regular season.
""Hopefully they're playing freer， getting the monkey off their back and playing basketball."" said Casey. ""Hopefully Those two young men， they're not going to forget how to play. Back to playing to their identity.""
With the historical series win against Pacers， Toronto will now face no. four seed， Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals. Game one will take place Tuesday evening in Toronto.

So when you hear the term “stone veneer,” you may ask if the product is similar to dental veneers.
Believe it or not, you wouldn’t be far off. In our mouths [url=http://www.steelersjerseys.com/Marcus-Gilbert-Jersey/]Cheap Marcus Gilbert Jersey[/url] , veneers coat our teeth to replicate the look of a healthy, beautiful and natural smile. Stone veneers operate on the same principle. They achieve the same look, texture, colour and shape as natural stone.
The key difference? Stone veneers give homes all the benefits of real stone – but at a fraction of the price.
Faux Stones are comprised of Portland cement [url=http://www.steelersjerseys.com/Ramon-Foster-Jersey/]Cheap Ramon Foster Jersey[/url] , some lightweight real stone elements, iron oxide pigments, water repellents and various polymers. If that sounds like wall stone jargon to you, the simpler way to understand stone veneers is that they’re comprised of various components that achieve the look of natural stone and are designed to withstand the elements.
The benefits of manufactured stones
Manufactured stones replicate virtually any type of stone wall you can imagine [url=http://www.steelersjerseys.com/David-DeCastro-Jersey/]Cheap David DeCastro Jersey[/url] , including ledge stone, castle stone, limestone and other types of wall stone. This popular new trend is also cost-effective both directly and indirectly. In the strictest sense, the thinner [url=http://www.steelersjerseys.com/Jordan-Berry-Jersey/]Cheap Jordan Berry Jersey[/url] , lighter materials in stone veneers make the product less expensive than natural stone.
Indirectly, because of their lightweight composition, faux stones don’t take the same toll on a household that real wall stone does. They are light enough that they can be easily installed in virtually any interior stone or exterior stone application. Moreover, they don’t require expensive extensions or reinforcements to a house’s foundation.
Because of their more convenient design [url=http://www.steelersjerseys.com/Alejandr ... va-Jersey/]Cheap Alejandro Villanueva Jersey[/url] , manufactured stone are also significantly easier to transport than natural stone. It’s no wonder we’re seeing them pop up everywhere, including fashion-forward cities like Toronto, Hamilton, Kitchener-Waterloo [url=http://www.steelersjerseys.com/Chris-Boswell-Jersey/]Cheap Chris Boswell Jersey[/url] , Barrie, Kingston, Niagara Falls and Ottawa.
Indoor and outdoor uses
Faux stones users, whether they’re building a home [url=http://www.steelersjerseys.com/Stephon-Tuitt-Jersey/]Cheap Stephon Tuitt Jersey[/url] , selling one or buying one, are usually ahead of the curve in terms of home design trends. It’s thus no wonder that they’ve found so many different uses for stone veneers already.
For example, interior stone veneers are used in fireplaces, stairways [url=http://www.steelersjerseys.com/Jesse-James-Jersey/]Cheap Jesse James Jersey[/url] , wine cellars, bar.
