Raptors and Celtics conspire for the most perfect preseason finish ever

New, comments

The final 11 seconds of the Raptors' win over the Celtics Wednesday is a perfect encapsulation of the NBA preseason.

Here is what you're getting in the final 11 seconds of Wednesday's Raptors-Celtics game.

1. The Celtics, down two, blowing coverage on a full-court leak-out, which should end the game.

2. Toronto's Julyan Stone going Full Raptor by missing the wide-open dunk to seal the game.

3. Boston's Jordan Crawford airballing the potential game-winning stepback three after passing up a fairly open spot-up three.

This is the basketball version of Oscar bait.
