    Was watching Raptors highlights from last season

    had forgotten that Kawhi hit a game winner against Portland that was nearly identical to "The Shot" - including four bounces

    So the reactions leading up to and after the shot are still here.
    1. Go to top of page and choose "latest activity" instead of "posts"
    2.Page 17-15 are right on the moments leading up to the shot and reactions.
    Thanks -- I used your method and just went from page 20 all the way forward. (I got lots of time on my hands.)

    Found that to be extremely worthwhile. Great to relive the madness through the posters here at RR.

    A small number of my posts and the posts of some others are just blank... wonder why... anyway...

    With one of my missing posts I was able to find the content again by selecting edit -- and I found this link below of the last 4.2 seconds and onwards of Jurassic Park.

    I find it really remarkable that now, when we're forced to avoid our fellow human-beings at all costs... not even a year ago this time, thanks to our Raptors' incredible playoff run... Torontonians were literally closer than we've ever been. And I'm glad we got to live that out so close in time to where we're at now. It's just the most astonishing display of communal joy -- and for me at least, I take joy in seeing that right now.

    ...and I never noticed previously but now that it's burned into my brain, check out how the blond girl right up front does the exact same Jordan Lloyd move at the exact same moment that he did. Guess that's what happens when you have the absolute closest vantage point for The Shot.

    Wow this thread seriously got messed up. Wish the mods didn't merge the threads. Wasn't like that for the Orlando series.

    Can still find each individual game thread:

    If you sort by latest activity you can get 25 pages. Dont think that includes every post but i page 25 looks like the begging of the 4th quarter from game 7. I remember i was able to find some of the posts from when the shot happened a few months ago. (I think when we were about the play the 6ers for the first time this season we revisted it). Maybe how i found it is in the thread.

    Here's the entire Sixer series thread, in which every game was truncated into just this one thread.

    Not sure if you, Joey, or mods can explain how to see the posts from the game 7? In Jclaw's OP it shows like 25 posts at the bottom and also shows a navigation bar of seemingly 1000 posts, though they don't seem to change when you scroll through that.

    Shame, with all the hundreds of old game threads on here that still exist to have lost this one if that's the case.

    Open Gym comes through with a great capture of the 2nd Round:

    As octothorp said, Kawhi caught the ball and during that motion you're allowed to "gather" yourself...once we had full possession and began taking a new route, he only takes 2 steps before the first dribble leaves his hand.

    It's not traveling. It's KIND OF close, but if Tony Brothers called Kawhi for traveling in that moment, giving Philly the last shot, he better get to traveling, FAST. He might need a police escort all the way out of Canada.

    Besides, he was good. Philly already covered the spread, and the biggest star in the series was set to advance. His work here was done

    Excuses.

    players travel all the time.
    The refs could call travelling on every other possession if they wanted to do so.... just like they could call fouls basically every time down the floor. But some people have to try to diminish everything.

    Yeah, I've seen that comment. L2M report didn't call it a missed call. (Only acknowledged incorrect call was a missed shooting foul on Reddick at :41 that could have put Toronto up 5, so bitter Sixers fans should realize that they definitely did benefit from a missed call). A player who catches a pass while on the move is allowed until his second step to begin his dribble. I think his right foot is down when he catches the pass, he steps with his left, and then steps with his right again (the step on the logo) around the same time he releases the ball to begin his dribble. It's extremely close by the letter of the law, but the reality is that far more egregious catch-and-dribble violations go uncalled all the time, and the NBA isn't about to crack down on those.
    Thanks for this insight!
