Toronto Raptors

Kyle Lowry's clutch shot in Game 6 grabs DeMar DeRozan's attention

Talk about a classic.

Down 3-2 in their second-round series with the Boston Celtics, the Toronto Raptors gave everything they had in a thrilling Game 6 that was decided in double overtime.

It took a team effort to come back and defeat the Celtics, but it was Kyle Lowry who led the charge for the Raptors. Not only did he score a game-high 33 points to go along with eight rebounds, six assists and two steals - in 53 minutes, no less - it was his jump shot over Kemba Walker in the closing seconds of double overtime that served as the knockout punch.

Not long after Lowry's shot dropped, San Antonio Spurs forward DeMar DeRozan took to Twitter to react to his former teammate's clutch play.

DeRozan and Lowry are, of course, more than former teammates. It's well documented that the two developed a close bond during their six years together on the Raptors, with Lowry calling DeRozan his "best friend" on multiple occasions.

They've supported each other since DeRozan was traded to the Spurs, and it doesn't appear as though that's going to change anytime soon.
