The Cavaliers had been in control for the majority of the game, but a late run from the Raptors had suddenly put the game in question in the final minute. Leading by three with just just 15 seconds left, Cavaliers forward Jeff Green missed his second free throw that would have likely put the game out of reach for the Raptors.
After Toronto grabbed the rebound, the Raptors stormed down the court, with OG Anunoby fooling his defender with a pump fake before hitting a phenomenal three to tie the game.
