Toronto Raptors 123 New York Knicks 121 in Overtime


For the second time this season, the Knicks lost in overtime when Lee and I were in attendance.  The Knicks held a small lead for most of the game and led 101-92 with 5 1/2 minutes to play in regulation, but Toronto surged back with a 12-3 run, capped by five straight points from Fred VanVleet to tie it at 104 with 1:30 remaining. VanVleet then nearly made a costly mistake, fouling Brunson purposely in the backcourt with 18 seconds left. The Knicks were two points down with 6.6 seconds left in regulation, but R.J.  Barrett went all the way up the middle of the floor and no Raptors stepped in to stop him before his dunk made it 110-all sending the game into overtime.

Toronto pulled ahead 121-115 with 1;23 left in overtime.  The Knicks nearly erased that lead, but Toronto held on for a two-point victory.
