Kawhi Leonard’s Game 7 heroics stun Sixers in NBA playoffs
Vince Lombardi famously called football a game of inches.
Kawhi Leonard showed the same is true of basketball on Sunday night. In the seventh game of Toronto’s Eastern Conference semifinal series against the 76ers, the game was tied at 90 when Leonard launched a shot ahead of the final buzzer.
The basketball hit the rim. Then it hit the rim again. And then again. And after hitting the rim for a fourth time, the ball fell through and the Raptors won the game and the series.
Here is the Kawhi shot that won it:
Watching the shot in slow motion is mesmerizing:
This shot of fans watching in Toronto is fantastic. Sports can be awesome:
