Toronto avoided falling into an surmountable hole Thursday when OG Anunoby drilled a 3-pointer at the buzzer to lift the Raptors to a 104-103 victory over the Celtics in the Eastern Conference semis.
The win cuts Boston’s series lead to 2-1. No team has ever overcome a 3-0 deficit, making it a must-win game for Toronto.
The bad news is Stanley Johnson and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson still have yet to appear in the series. The Raptors are playing a short bench.
Game 4 is scheduled for Saturday at 3:30 p.m. MST on TNT.
Game 3 of the Miami-Milwaukee series is Friday at 3:30 p.m. MST on TNT. Andre Iguodala, Solomon Hill and the Heat are looking to take a 3-0 series lead on the top-seeded Bucks.
It’s unclear if Iguodala will play. He left Game 2 with an ankle injury.

Honestly, I’d trust Stanley Johnson more right now than Pascal with the ball. And that’s a shady statement! He needs to stop shooting so much, today is not the day for this #WeTheNorth— Michelle ♥️ (@MichelleFromTO) September 4, 2020
Is that Rondae Hollis Jefferson music? https://t.co/oVIbvHyVAt— Kyle Lowry wins games (@The_6ix_man) September 3, 2020
We need some positive come from behind energy! Time for Chris Boucher, Terrence Davis and Rondae Hollis Jefferson to see the floor #WeTheNorth— Arvind (@textarvind) September 4, 2020
