In The Scrum With Chris Bosh

At the end of the Toronto Raptors/Washington Wizards matchup last Friday in Toronto, Wizards guard Caron Butler took the ball on the right elbow, drove hard with his right hand, pulled the ball back with brilliant step-back dribble, elevated, and hit a shot at the buzzer that gave his team a 100-98 victory.

Right after he hit the shot, Butler waved to the crowd and ran to the locker room.

Just three days later, the Raptors and Wizards faced off again in Washington, except this time, the Raptors were in a position to win. Raptors forward Chris Bosh found himself alone just to the right of the top of the key, he looked down at his feet, got set, then shot and made a 3-point shot which turned out to be the game winner, despite only making 10-of-44 three-point shots all season.

As the final buzzer sounded, Bosh let out a primal yell as his teammates rallied around him.

15 minutes after that yell heard around the Verizon Center, Bosh spoke to the media about that game winning play, the challenge of playing despite being eliminated from the playoffs, and the strong play of Pops Mensah-Bonsu.
