If you didn’t catch it. The Raptors took on the Detroit Pistons on ESPN in a national televised game last night for United States viewers.
Raptors trailed for most of the game and were down by as many as 18 in the first half – however, the Raps were able to crawl their way back and make the game competitive down the stretch.
Then this happened…
Shortly after – evidence of the Raptor’s all-star DeMar Derozan’s epic final second pull ahead dunk could be found all over the internet – social media blew up, NBA twitter went crazy – heck – even Wikipedia was a victim of the aftermath.
Even DeMar’s posterized victim – Anthony Tolliver found himself a victim of the hysteria.
Raptors went on to win 121-119 in OT – the Eastern Conference juggernauts became the first NBA team to clinch a playoff spot with the victory. Raptors return home to the Air Canada Center on Friday evening to take on the perennial NBA championship favorites – The Houston Rockets.
It looks like it’s gonna be a good one.
