The Toronto Raptors are going to the Eastern Conference Finals for the first time, and a big reason for that is our very own Patrick Patterson. The Raptors won game seven against the Miami Heat 116-89 win.
Patterson finished with a double-double of 11 points and 11 rebounds. A pretty solid game if ya ask me. Kyle Lowry also had a pretty good game as well, scoring 35 points.
Also, a shoutout to Dwane Casey, the Raptors head coach, who was also on Kentucky’s ’78 championship team.
Check out some highlights of the game:

The Raptors will now head on to face LeBron and the Cavs in the Eastern Conference Finals. Good luck to both Patterson and Casey!
UPDATE: Patterson spoke to the media after the game.
