Danny Green talked about Kawhi Leonard’s Game 7 buzzer beater over Joel Embiid of the Philadelphia 76ers that sent the Toronto Raptors to the Eastern Conference Finals.

Green said the play didn’t exactly go as planned and it felt much longer than the 4.2 seconds of game clock.

“I really don’t think there was an actual play call, but there was always more than one option. Look for so-and-so coming off, look for so-and-so and then there’s a play for [Leonard].

These two options, look for them first because they might be open. Obviously, they weren’t and they were going to throw it straight to Kawhi and figure it out. He just caught it and went.

That one second of bouncing…it seemed like at least 45 seconds…Then it started rolling. In camera time, it shows it a lot faster than it really happened. In real-time, that roll, that bounce took forever,” the former San Antonio Spurs and Raptors sharpshooter said during his appearance on CBC Sports’ ”Parlay Shorts”.

Green and Leonard led the Raptors to the 2019 NBA title.
