The Toronto Raptors are on to the Eastern Conference Semifinals for the third year in a row after closing out their first-round series against the Washington Wizards on Friday at Capital One Arena in Washington.

DeMar DeRozan had a series-low 16 points, but Kyle Lowry picked up the slack with 24 points to lift the No. 1 seed to a 102-92 Game 6 win. The Raptors secured a 4-2 win in the competitive series while snapping Washington’s eight-game home playoff winning streak.

Toronto will now take on either the Cleveland Cavaliers or Indiana Pacers in the next round, a series that could also end Friday night with the Cavs up 3-2.
