Having been up by 14 points midway through the fourth quarter, the Raps handed the Jazz a stretch-run gift. Final score: Raptors 94, Jazz 96. A couple of great Holy Craptors moments in the highlights below:
1. The announcer begins the highlights with the astute observation that “the playoffs for the Raptors are pretty much out of reach by this point”. Thanks for rubbing in the obvious, buddy.
2. Twenty seconds in, we see a botched alley-oop attempt, which not only ends with a fast break the other way, but an injured Sonny Weems writhing in the simultaneous pain of a twisted ankle and the embarrassment of being a Raptor.
3. The final tip-in. Utah’s Devin Harris puts up a shot that misses, and rather than, say, boxing out, several Raptors decide to use their energy instead to try to convince the ref that Devin Harris had traveled on the play.
You’re welcome, Utah.
