Raptors forward Kawhi Leonard made the first Game 7 buzzer-beater in NBA history last night. His fadeaway jumper bounced four separate times on the rim before falling through the net. It was a surreal moment in Toronto’s 92-90 win over the Philadelphia 76ers.
The last time the Toronto Raptors played a Game 7, it was a 27-point blowout over the Miami Heat. That was in 2016, and it sent the team to their first conference finals berth in franchise history.
With the game tied 90-90 and 4.2 seconds remaining, the ball was inbounded to Leonard. He was heavily guarded by 76ers guard Ben Simmons. With less than a second remaining in regulation, Leonard elevated in the right corner over Embiid’s outstretched arm and launched the shot.
