Kawhi Leonard has reached Michael Jordan levels of National Basketball Association playoff domination

Double trouble Pair of Game 7s await to end Round 2

Game one is on Tuesday in Oakland, California. He followed that up by averaging 34.7 points, 9.9 rebounds and 4.0 assists in seven games against the Sixers while continuing his red-hot shooting by hitting 54.0 percent of his attempts.

The Toronto Raptors star eliminated the Sixers from the NBA Playoffs on a ridiculous shot to end Game 7 of a second round series.

"It's going to be a life memory that, as painful as it feels now, it will help shape his career and give him grater clarity of what this time of the year represents", Sixers head coach Brett Brown said.

The Raptors took Game 1 but dropped the next two in an ugly fashion. They have never been to an NBA Finals. Almost two minutes passed before the next basket, Leonard's long jumper with 1:41 to go that was initially ruled a 3, but changed to a 2 after video review.

If you witnessed the ending to Game 7 of the 76ers-Raptors series on Sunday night, you're well aware of quite possibly the most clutch shot in Canadian basketball history. Embiid was in tears after the season-ending defeat, which was decided by Kawhi Leonard's buzzer-beater that dramatically bounced around the tin before falling. They can use this heartbreaker as a learning experience, and can fine tune their respective games in order to take the 76ers to the promised land. The Raptors bench held back.

The 76ers have won more than 50 games in the past two seasons, however, and the front office has made it clear they're ready to make a Finals run - especially with the additions of Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris this season. Naturally, the ball ended up in Leonard's hands.

Toronto are back in the conference finals for the second time in four seasons, and for Raptors fans the win was sweet revenge for a heartbreaking game-seven defeat by the 76ers 18 years earlier. They got the moment.

Toronto missed a chance to close out the 76ers in Game 6 as they were outplayed badly in the contest.

Barkley and Shaquille O'Neal have been crushing Joel Embiid on TNT throughout the Philadelphia 76ers' Eastern Conference semifinals series against the Toronto Raptors for performing poorly while ill.

Since Drake became a global ambassador for the Raptors in 2013, some fans have blamed the rapper for the team's losses, calling it the "Drake curse". The Instagram post of Madonik's photo on Drake's page has earned more than a million likes, whereas the Sports Illustrated post got about 25,000.
