The biggest shot in the second round of the 2019 playoffs — and Toronto Raptors history.
After a disheartening loss in Game 6 against the Philadelphia 76ers, the two teams engaged in a seesaw battle that included 10 lead changes and six ties leading up to the final seconds of the series , according to ESPN.
To recount the biggest shot in the second round of the 2019 playoffs — and Toronto Raptors history — we turn to those present for the occasion:
Kawhi Leonard missed the second of two free throws with 10.8 seconds remaining. The Raptors led 90-88.
Leonard: I was disappointed missing that free throw. I was very mad.
Tobias Harris collected the rebound and pushed the ball to Jimmy Butler, who streaked up the court and got a fast-break layup to fall with 4.2 seconds remaining over the outstretched arm of Serge Ibaka.
Leonard: I tried to race down and get the rebound. Probably should have sprinted back to give some help on that layup that Jimmy made. But after that, I was just like, whatever play he drew up, I’m gonna have to get to my spot and shoot it with confidence.
Raptors head coach Nick Nurse called a timeout and a final play was drawn up.
