In an entertaining Eastern Conference Semifinal Game 7 between the Philadelphia 76ers and the Toronto Raptors, two superstars made noise in the final twenty seconds.
The game was at 90-88 with less than 11 seconds to go.
Harris eventually passed the ball to guard Jimmy Butler, who raced coast-to-coast upcourt and drove the ball to the boards, bounced off the glass and then to the rim a couple times and into the net, tying the game at 90.

But it would come to the Raptors’ final possession.
Leonard get the ball and penetrated it around the court, looking for someone or somewhere to shoot it.
However with the time expiring, Leonard would heave his shot from the far wing. The ball would take only three or four bounces until it found its own way into the hoop.
