by on June 14, 2019

The Toronto Raptors became the 2019 NBA champions Thursday night, and they are the first team outside the US to do it.
Thursday’s game was tight, going back and forth between the Raptors and the Golden State Warriors. But the Raptors took the game in the end with a 114-110 for a 4-2 series victory.

The game ended the 2019 championship series and was a first-time win for the Raptors, who made their NBA Finals debut in their 24th season.

Kawhi Leonard, the All-Star forward Toronto acquired last summer from San Antonio, was named Finals MVP for the second time. Leonard is the third player to win the award with more than one franchise, along with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and LeBron James.

Raptors point-guard Kyle Lowry and forward Pascal Siakam put up spectacular performances as well, each with 26 points.

For the Golden State Warriors, it was a must-win battle at home at Oracle Arena in Oakland, where they were the defending champs are aiming for their third title in a row and fourth in the last five years.

The Warriors suffered a loss with Klay Thompson injuring his knee and leaving the stadium on crutches. It was all too familiar for the Warriors.

The team was playing without two-time NBA Finals MVP, Kevin Durant, who in Game 5 of the NBA Finals was helped off the court after suffering an Achilles injury, while his team went on to win the game 106-105.

    It was really good to see Mr Masai Ujiri with the Nigeria flag on his shoulders in a proud and humble demonstration of his native country. He becomes the first Toronto NBA President of Basketball Operations to achieve the cup for Canada after 24 years. Beautiful. This goes to say that if we work together at home we can move mountains.
