Watch: Kawhi Leonard gets friendly bounce on thrilling winning shot
The Toronto Raptors advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals with a 92-90 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday thanks to some heroics by Kawhi Leonard, including the friendliest bounce imaginable on the last shot.
Leonard went baseline and took a shot from just inside the 3-point line in the corner just before the buzzer:

The side angle is even better:

The ball took four bounces before falling in and felt like it was on the rim for an hour before dropping through. The suspense was intense, and for a moment, Philly probably thought they were going to overtime. Instead, the shot fell. That gave Leonard 41 points in the game.
The Raptors now return to the conference finals for the second time in franchise history and will face the Milwaukee Bucks.
