GOOD MORNING! HERE’S JOJO BEATING BUZZER AND RAPS LAST NIGHT

By Mel Hart

Joel Embiid hit a 3-pointer at the shot clock buzzer in overtime to beat the Raptors 104-101 to give the Sixers a 3-0 lead in their best-of-seven series.

Embiid barely missed a fadeaway 3-pointer at the buzzer in regulation, followed by Tobias Harris missing the putback shot that sent the game to overtime.

The Sixers got their first lead of the game in overtime and then Embiid put it away after Doc Rivers called a clutch timeout with just 0.9 seconds left on the shot clock and just 2.6 seconds left in OT.

Embiid got it off just before the shot clock expired and the ball got nothing but net.

OG Anunoby couldn’t get his 3-point attempt off in time for the Raptors, ending the game.

Embiid scored 18 of his 33 points in the third quarter and finished with 13 rebounds, two assists, a block and three 3-pointers on 12-of-20 shooting. Game 4 is Saturday in Toronto and it would appear that this series is all but over.
