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.

What’s next

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.
