VIDEO: Luol Deng Beats The Raptors, Announcers Go Wild

The Toronto Raptors, bless their hearts, tried to win this game. They tried as hard as they could to beat the Chicago Bulls. At least it seemed like they did -- except for Andrea Bargnani's wide-open miss at the buzzer in regulation, which was kind of inexcusable. One would think the Raptors would be resigned to tanking, but I'm not sure it's possible to tank in the way they did on Saturday night.

With a one-point lead and time winding down in overtime, Toronto was poised to beat the Bulls. With under a second to go, C.J. Watson had his shot blocked.

And Toronto still lost. How? Luol Deng being in the right place at the right time, of course.

Yeah, the tip-in is nice and all, but the announcers are even better. As the shot leaves Deng's hands on the replay, one announcer Stacey King yells "It's a bucket. Let's go home. Drive home safely ... beep beep!" Love the enthusiasm from the home announcers.

Edit: Stacey King was the announcer, as @tuffyr informed me.
