Patrick Patterson Steals Ball, Steals Win from Brooklyn Nets

Thanks to Patrick Patterson, Deron Williams is going to think long and hard before throwing another pass into the backcourt during crunch time.

Clinging to a one-point lead and lacking any timeouts, Williams panicked as a five-second violation neared. His reaction under pressure wasn't a good one.

Patterson swooped into the passing lane and snatched the ill-advised toss with just 10 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter. A couple of ticks later, Kyle Lowry set him up for a short, angled jumper from the right side that gave the Toronto Raptors a 104-103 lead.

The Brooklyn Nets couldn't do better than a highly contested heave from Paul Pierce on the other end, resulting in a Raptors win that could fittingly be described as a steal.
