All the best reactions after OG's epic Raptors buzzer beater

Sep 4 2020, 1:02 pm

It wasn’t quite like Kawhi Leonard’s buzzer-beater last year, but it wasn’t far off.

Down 2-0 in their playoff series against the Boston Celtics, the Toronto Raptors were 0.5 seconds away from trailing 3-0, which surely would have been an insurmountable hole to climb out of.

But OG Anunoby’s game-winning buzzer-beater changed that, and now the Raptors are back in the series.

Anunoby calmly drained a three-pointer with no time left on the clock, converting on a perfect pass from teammate Kyle Lowry, who had to deliver the ball over 7-foot-5 giant Tacko Fall.

The reactions from players and fans after the game were both amazing and hilarious, mostly due to OG’s deadpanned look. I mean, even Kawhi showed emotion when he drained a buzzer-beater last year.

But the 23-year-old who missed the entire playoff run last year due to injury, was cooler than the other side of the pillow.

After the game, Anunoby was asked how he stayed so cool in the moment.

“I expected to make it,” said Anunoby. “I don’t shoot trying to miss… I wasn’t going to act surprised.”

What an answer.

“This OG’s moment, man,” Lowry told reporters after the game. “That’s a great moment for that kid. I’m so happy and so proud of him.”

Here’s another look at the shot in slow motion:

The memes were out of control after the game, not only from fans, but from the Raptors’ official social media accounts too.
