Two different worlds collided last night: the unpredictable sports world and the unforgiving Internet.
After leading for most of the game, The Warriors were sent to the brink of elimination as the Raptors took a late fourth-quarter lead thanks to a key three from Kawhi.
As Golden State fired back to take the lead, the final seconds were put into the hands of Kyle Lowry who couldn’t hit the game-winning series-clinching shot, sparking a Game 6 in Oakland.
WHAT A FINISH.

Since last night’s heart-breaker (even tear-jerker?) fans have taken to the Internet to react to Lowry’s missed attempt in the best way our generation knows how to, memes and GIFs at the point guard’s expense.

“Did you really ask Kyle Lowry to take the shot to win a championship?”

It only took a few Twitter users to point out that Lowry’s shot was actually blocked by Golden State’s Draymond Green and his relentless backlash may not be completely merited.
Let’s cut Lowry some slack here, folks.
