The Raptors found themselves trailing by eight entering the fourth quarter in Milwaukee on Saturday, but some hot three-point shooting from John Lucas III got them back in it, and the game was tight the rest of the way.

Alan Anderson wasn’t great in this one, despite leading the Raptors in scoring with 21 points -- he played 29 minutes, but managed to get up 20 shots during his time on the court, making just eight, and going a brutal 1-7 from three-point distance.

But all is forgiven after a play like this.

With 6.1 seconds remaining in regulation, Anderson receives the ball along the baseline, isolated against the Bucks’ best defender in Larry Sanders. But Sanders is more of an interior presence, and Anderson exploited that by faking left and dribbling right, dropping Sanders to the floor which gave Anderson the uncontested dunk to tie the game at 104 and force the overtime session.
