Cameroonian star Joel Embiid hit a decisive three-pointer with 0.8 seconds left in overtime to give the Philadelphia 76ers a valuable 104-101 away win over the Toronto Raptors and a 3-0 lead in their first-round playoff series.
After Sixers coach Doc Rivers called a timeout to save possession as the shot clock was winding down, Embiid took a pass from Danny Green and hit a shot from the wing before racing back to his bench to celebrate.
