After six hard-fought games and nearly 48 tense minutes in Game 7, Kawhi Leonard sent the Toronto Raptors to the Eastern Conference finals with a miraculous fadeaway buzzer-beater that bounced around the rim for what seemed like an eternity before it dropped through. The Philadelphia 76ers made a valiant effort, tying the game on Jimmy Butler's late breakaway layup, but ultimately Leonard was just too good.
Toronto advances to face the Milwaukee Bucks in the East finals, which should be a tremendous matchup. Leonard will face off with another two-way superstar in Giannis Antetokounmpo, with the winner headed to the NBA Finals. It would be the first-ever Finals appearance for the Raptors, while the Bucks would be making their first NBA Finals since 1974.
