The Toronto Raptors had a little trouble putting away the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night. The No. 3 team in the Eastern Conference took until OT to beat Anthony Davis & Co., all with a little help from Normal Powell and Kyle Lowry.

After Jrue Holiday hit a jumper with 2:31 remaining in the fourth quarter, both teams struggled to score and regulation ended with the game tied at 96-96.

Overtime was a battle, and the Pelicans fought back after the Raptors took a 4-point lead with less than two minutes left.

Then, in the final minute, Lowry hit a difficult shot as time expired on the shot clock that was the final dagger:

Toronto beat the Pelicans, 108-106.
