The all-star version of Kyle Lowry has finally emerged. Lowry poured in 33 points to carry Toronto to a 95-91 victory over the Miami Heat, taking a 2-1 lead in their best-of-seven second-round playoff series. Raptors big man Jonas Valanciunas left the game early in the third quarter with a sprained ankle.

Earlier, St. Louis took a 3-2 series lead over the Stars with a 4-1, Game 5 win.

Mr. Pedersen,for training camp in Saskatoon, you should book into the Best Western - East Side. It is close to Griffith's Stadium and it is new (just opened last fall). There is a great Continental breakfast every morning.
