The Toronto Raptors appeared to be on their way to a 3-0 series deficit when Kemba Walker made a ridiculous pass to Daniel Theis to give the Boston Celtics a 103-101 lead with 00.5 seconds remaining.

But the Raptors had one last chance, and Kyle Lowry made a perfect cross-court inbounds pass to OG Anunoby, who hit a buzzer-beating three for a 104-103 Toronto victory.

No NBA team has come back from a 3-0 series deficit, so Toronto’s season would’ve — almost certainly — been over for all intents and purposes if not for the clutch play by Lowry (who scored a game-high 31 points) and Anunoby.
Instead, the Raptors can even up the second-round series if they can get a victory in Game 4, which is Saturday at 6:30 p.m. ET (TNT) in the Orlando bubble.
