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.
Inexcusable to throw a pass that gets stolen into the back court. It's worse than a :05 violation. At least a violation allows D to be set— Brian Geltzeiler (@hoopscritic) January 28, 2014
