OG Anunoby Wins it at the Buzzer to Give Raptors First Win Vs. Celtics
Never underestimate the heart of a champion!
How did that just happen?!
With 0.5 seconds on the clock, the Raptors drew up an inbound play to perfection as Kyle Lowry somehow found OG Anunoby on the other end of the court for the game-winning three-pointer!
I could not feel my hands. I could not feel my body. I went numb. A series that was a second away from pushing the Raptors to the brink of elimination is now at 2-1 and the defending NBA champions are right back in it. Game 4 goes on Saturday night and the Raptors will have the opportunity to tie this second round series up!

Where do we even go from here?
The Raptors sucked in the first half. The shooting struggles continued to plague them, but then things turned in the second half as the Raptors made key adjustments defensively and focused on taking control of the tempo of the game. The perimeter shots began to fall, the spacing opened up and the Raptors only allowed 46 second half points to a top 5 offence in the entire league.
There was some good and some bad. Lots of tape to analyze.
At times Pascal Siakam looked brutal, at other times, he looked valuable – especially when defending Jayson Tatum who finished the game with just 15 points. After struggling with their shots, the Raptors back court of Kyle Lowry and Fred VanVleet woke up, putting in a huge effort to win this one.
Also, before I log off for the night, let me just say that Kyle Lowry is incredible. There will be no Lowry slander tonight.
I’ll see you all in Game 4.
Raptors win! Raptors win! Get out the salami and cheese mama, this game and this night is over!
