Raptors dethrone Warriors for first National Basketball Association title

Raptors dethrone Warriors for first National Basketball Association title

"Drake is confident in Toronto and that they will win the National Basketball Association championship but he is nervous that the series will go to a game seven", a source close to the 32-year-old tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.

For the second time in his nine-year career, Kawhi Leonard has been named Finals MVP.

Islanders gathered at the Eastlink Centre in Charlottetown Thursday night, one of dozens of such gatherings across the country, to watch the Toronto Raptors win their first National Basketball Association title in franchise history.

Thompson's injury came on the heels of a nightmare Game 5 for the Warriors, who won the game but lost Kevin Durant for the remainder of the series and beyond with a torn Achilles tendon.

The problem is the Warriors did not have a timeout, which gave the Raptors a free throw and possession in the Bay Area.

"When Klay goes down and is out for the game, it's just sort of a, you got to be kidding me, like this has to stop", said Warriors coach Steve Kerr.

Let's look ahead to the free agency, draft and trade decisions facing Toronto this offseason.

Golden State had a final shot to win trailing 111-110 but Stephen Curry missed a 3-pointer and the team called a timeout when it had none, setting up three final free throws by Leonard to seal the victory. "But our DNA and who we are and the character that we have on this team, I wouldn't bet against us being back on this stage next year and going forward".
