With more drama than any scripted TV show could provide, Kawhi Leonard ended the Eastern Conference semifinals in stunning fashion. His series-winning buzzer-beater -- coming just seconds after he missed a free throw that would've given his team a three-point lead -- hit several parts of the rim before falling through the net, giving the Toronto Raptors a 92-90 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers.
It seemed as if all of the NBA was watching and waiting to see if Leonard's shot would fall, and when it finally did, the tweets came fast and furious.
