For a few glorious moments, this DeMar DeRozan dunk looked like it was going to be the game-winner in tonight’s Raptors-Pistons game. It would’ve been perfect—explosive and dramatic and from a guy who was on fire, with DeRozan on his way to 42 points and six assists:
Unfortunately, it wasn’t to be. The Pistons tied things up and sent it to OT on a short Blake Griffin basket with less than a second remaining. The actual game-winner, provided by Fred VanVleet for a 121-119 win for Toronto, was pretty swell in its own right. Just, y’know, not nearly as swell as a ridiculous posterizing dunk.
