Kawhi Leonard has revealed his delight after his buzzer-beater helped the Toronto Raptors edge out the Philadelphia 76ers. In one of the most dramatic moments in NBA playoff history, Leonard saw his last-ditch attempt bounce four times on the rim before eventually dropping in to secure a 92-90 win over the Sixers and claim the series 4-3.

With the Eastern Conference finals against the Milwaukee Bucks to look forward to, former San Antonio Spurs star Leonard was delighted that he produced the memorable moment to see the Raptors through. “I’m a guy that acts like I’ve been there before. So probably the last time you’ve seen me scream was when we won [in 2014],” said Leonard.
“Whenever it’s a moment that I haven’t really experienced, I’ll try to show some emotion and let it come out. Tonight was one of those nights. It was a great feeling.” Meanwhile, the Portland Trail Blazers beat the Denver Nuggets 100-96 to win the series 4-3 and set up a Western Conference Finals encounter with reigning champions Golden State Warriors.
