Playoff contenders facing tight situations
The Grizzlies and Trail Blazers have been masters at pulling out close games.
The Toronto Raptors only wish you could tie every once in awhile.
Currently, our North of the Border friends are 28-38 and 1 ½ games out of the playoffs in the Eastern Conference but have had to play longer and harder just to get there. In fact, they've played a total of 8 overtime games and been involved in 20 games that have either been decided by three or fewer points or gone an extra stanza.
