Kawhi Leonard

Clang. Clang. Clang. Clang. Swish! All About Kawhi Leonard's Buzzer-Beater

On Sunday night, Kawhi Leonard beat the buzzer with a high-arcing, deep-in-the-corner jump shot that sent the Toronto Raptors past the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinal, 92-90.

With 1 minute 14 seconds left, the Raptors seemed to take a grip on the series at last, grabbing a 4-point lead.

With less than a second on the clock, he uncorked an off-balance jumper, his feet leaving the floor from just inside the 3-point line.

He is a free agent this summer and has been the subject of frequent news media reports linking him to several teams.

The future in Philly of Butler, Tobias Harris, J.J. Reddick, even the polarizing Simmons — basically everyone but Embiid — also is uncertain.

Before Sunday, the most memorable buzzer-beater of these playoffs came in Game 5 of the Blazers-Thunder series, when Damian Lillard hit a 37-foot bomb to eliminate Oklahoma City.
