Oh boy. As much time as I spend making fun of the Raptors, I really feel bad about this one. They deserved to win. They played hard and took the league’s best team to overtime, only to have Luol Deng ruin it at the buzzer.
BARELY. If Deng had paused to burp before going up for this rebound, the buzzer would have been on our side, and the Raps would have pulled out a win. But the replay showed that the ball had cleared the bead of sweat on the tip of Deng’s finger just before time expired, allowing the Bulls to prove once again that they can win without Rose.
You’re welcome, Chicago.
