The Toronto Raptors are headed to the Eastern Conference Finals in stunning fashion.
With the game tied and four seconds remaining, Kawhi Leonard dribbled to the corner and unleashed a shot over multiple defenders. It hung on the rim for seemingly forever until it dropped in to give the Raptors a 92-90 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 7 of their second-round series.
Leonard finished with 41 points on 39 shots, while Serge Ibaka (17 points and eight boards), Pascal Siakam (11 points and 11 rebounds) and Kyle Lowry (10 points, six assists, six rebounds and two steals) provided support.
All five Philadelphia starters scored in double figures, including Joel Embiid (21 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks), but nobody could match Leonard’s heroics.
The Raptors will face the Bucks in the Eastern Conference Finals, while the 76ers turn their attention toward the offseason and Jimmy Butler’s decision on his 2019-20 player option.
