In a wire-to-wire, series-clinching Game 7, Kawhi Leonard put one final exclamation point on his brilliant performance. With the clock winding down, Leonard rose up and hit the buzzer-beater, sending the Sixers home in heartbreak, and helping the Raptors advance to the Eastern Conference Finals for the first time in years.
Following the scene, the internet was buzzing with reactions.
He really like that! #IE

Kawhi and the Raptors will advance to the Eastern Conference Finals to face the Milwaukee Bucks. And while Milwaukee has fared well in the postseason so far, the league has not seen a Kawhi this dominant. Can he lead the Raptors to the NBA Finals?
