In less than a second, the Toronto Raptors delivered a perfect pass, 3-point toss, and got back in a series that came oh so close to being over with the Boston Celtics up 3-0.
Instead, this series is now arguably the closest of the four remaining as either team could’ve been up 2-1 and two of the three games have been decided by a cumulative four points.
Kyle Lowry delivered a perfect pass over the outreached arms of 7’5″ Tacko Fall into the awaiting hands of OG Anunoby who completed a shortened jump shot to nail the 3-point shot within 0.5 seconds.
The resulting effect is the defending champions kept their hopes alive to win this series and quite possibly shifted the momentum.
Jayson Tatum had a rough night shooting 5 of 18 and 1 of 4 from deep for 18 points. Jaylen Brown delivered a solid effort including a double-double of 19 points and 12 rebounds although all he’ll remember from this contest is his blown defensive coverage on the final play.
Kemba Walker led his squad with 29 points and but for the Anunoby shot would’ve been the game’s hero with a beautiful pinpoint pass delivered in the offensive set just prior that led to Daniel Theis’ dunk and a two-point lead.
Marcus Smart scored 11 points but followed up his Game 2, six 3-point effort going 2 of 9 from deep.
Tremont Waters (knee), Javonte Green (knee), and Gordon Hayward (ankle) all remain out.

Free Toronto Raptors vs. Boston Celtics NBA Prediction:
Boston could be up 3-0 in this series and the Raptors could just as easily be up 2-1. Aside from the opening game of the series, that’s how close these two squads are.
The Celtics starting unit as a whole has played better. Yet, Toronto hasn’t played to its potential other than a few segments in Game 2 and 3.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Raptors -1.0
It feels like this might be the game the Raptors break out to even things up and make this a best of three series. Two things will need to happen for that prediction to come true – the others have to start scoring so Nurse doesn’t have to keep playing his core over 40 minutes.
I’m taking a big swing on this one — but it feels right.
