The Toronto Raptors were in tough and on the brink of another heartbreaking loss on Friday night against the Pacers. 

But Rudy Gay and Amir Johnson refused to let that happen in Indiana. 

Gay scored 17 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter and extra frame to lead Toronto to a 100-98 overtime comeback win over Indiana, snapping the Pacers' 15-game home win streak.

Down 72-64 heading into the fourth quarter, Johnson and Gay helped lead a miraculous last-minute surge that forced overtime. 

The newest Raptors acquisition hustled for a steal off the Pacers' in-bounds pass, and flipped the ball to Johnson, who dribbled into the key and missed his first shot but grabbed his own rebound for a buzzer-beater. 

In the extra frame is where Raptors fans got another dose of the former Memphis Grizzlies forward. 

Gay's number was called on the isolation play and he didn't disappoint. He shook his defender and drained the game-winner with 1.7 seconds left. 

With veteran Raptors players like Andrea Bargnani's names floating in trade rumours, was the Gay acquisition worth the price? How would you rate the trade so far?
