"I was excited. Everyone was excited. It was cool. Someone hit me in the nose," Anunoby said postgame, according to Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated.
Raptors guard Kyle Lowry scored 11 of his team-high 31 points in the first quarter to go along with eight assists, six boards, and two steals as the club cut the Celtics' series lead in half.
The six-time All-Star set the tone from the get-go and contributed to the game-sealing play, delivering a cross-court inbounds pass over the outstretched arms of 7-foot-5 Boston center Tacko Fall.
Lowry, however, gave his teammate full credit for the victory.
"The pass was nothing. OG made the shot. All the credit goes to the shot," Lowry said, according to CBS Sports' James Herbert. "Man, that's a tough shot. Give OG that credit. That pass was just to get it to a guy like OG. It's OG's moment, man, and that's a great moment for that kid and I'm so happy and so proud of him, man."
Walker posted 29 points on 9-of-15 shooting in a losing cause.
