Raptors advance to East final on buzzer-beater

Koreen Game 7 will be the judge of Masai Ujiri’s Raptors overhaul

It's good when you're able to crash the boards offensively and still get back.

"He was awesome at both ends", Raptors coach Nick Nurse said. Their other young star Ben Simmons will need to as well.

Ibaka had just nine points and three rebounds in Toronto's Game 6 loss and was 0 for 3 on three-point attempts. I was just trying to figure out how to pass the ball. "He ran about three quarters of the court". There was less than a second left on the clock when Leonard released the ball over the outstretched arm of the seven-foot Embiid.

It's not just a possibility that Brown is canned if the Sixers fail to beat the Raptors - it's likely, Stein reports.

"Doesn't matter, I'm fine, I played, we won the game", Lowry said, according to Blake Murphy of The Athletic. It was kind of loose, so I was just figuring out how to pass the ball.

J.J. Redick was watching from the Sixers' bench, having been replaced by James Ennis for defensive purposes.

INJURY WATCH: Rotations aren't expected to change much, if at all, for either team going into Game 7. "Looked like it was going in the whole time to me".

"It's going to be a life memory that, as painful as it feels now, it will help shape his career and give him grater clarity of what this time of the year represents", Sixers head coach Brett Brown said.

From Lowry's assist to the charge on Embiid, the Raptors outscored the 76ers 17-7. "I will tell you we were, I was, very generous tipping - I believe we would be welcomed back". "It looked like it was a little to the left".


Jimmy Butler lived up to his Jimmy Buckets nickname.

"Once it hit the rim once and twice", VanVleet said, "it was like, 'This is Kawhi". Finally, he mentions Drake's friendship with National Football League wideout Odell Beckham Jr., citing some of the drama from previous years when he was with the New York Giants. On Sunday, Leonard became the first player in National Basketball Association postseason history to hit a game-winning buzzer-beating in a Game 7. He connected. The arena exploded. Embiid broke down in tears. "Embiid was guarding me".

So who wins Raptors vs. Sixers?

If the 76ers fall to the Toronto Raptors in Game 7 of their Eastern Conference semifinals series on Sunday, however, Brett Brown's time in Philadelphia may be limited. One team will advance to the conference finals, and one will face major questions about its future.

TOP PERFORMERS: Leonard is averaging 26.6 points and 7.3 rebounds for the Raptors. Marc Gasol added seven points, 11 rebounds and three blocked shots.

The Raptors were losing control of the game in the third quarter.

Game 7 saw several shifts in momentum before the ultimate ending.

The odds may be stacked against the Sixers in winning an NBA Championship should they win Sunday, but the roster was built to make a deep run this season, and it will be almost impossible to sustain the whole team following this season. In Game 6 the Raptors gave up 16 offensive rebounds. There was a tough transition layup over Embiid to put them ahead. And when the Raptors' season was seemingly on the brink, they dug down for a three-possession stretch of elite defense. "Then it got one bounce and it was like, 'OK.' And then the second bounce it was 'Oh s--, we might have a chance here.' Once it went in I think everyone was just ridiculously excited".

Raptors: Meanwhile, Toronto has ridden the coattails of Kawhi Leonard throughout this series.
