On the morning of June 14, the Toronto Raptors basketball team won convincingly the Golden State Warriors in the game of the 6 series finals, thereby bringing the prestigious NBA championship to America for the first time.
Game 6 in the NBA Finals 2018/19 took place at the Oracle Arena. The defending champion Golden State Warriors had a chance to score 3-3 before playing the decisive match at the Toronto Raptors. But during the day the hand throwers were ineffective, the “Warrior” had to watch the opponent take the throne right on his home ground.
Raptors quality players under the guidance of superstar Kawhi Leonard won the NBA championship for the first time. Canadians burst into emotions because of this championship, because after 72 years, the NBA championship trophy (Larry O’Brien) just left the US territory to hand over a Canadian team.
Warriors look at their champions at home.
In the deciding match, “Dinosaurs” defeated Warriors with the score 114-110. Raptors played well in the first 2 innings when leading Warriors 60-57. Next, the home team brought the match back to the starting line after the epic third round as usual. But the injury of key handker Klay Thompson caused Warriors to collapse and fail in the decisive half.
Warriors enter the NBA with the most judged squad in NBA history. Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and DeMarcus Cousins - the 5 main battle positions of Warriors are all All-Star level. Even so, the army of coach Steve Kerr suffered abuse at the most important time.
In the first four games, Durant, the main scorer, was absent due to an injury. Until the 30-year-old superstar returned in game 5, he only played a few minutes, before a serious injury recurrence. And Thompson was sidelined in game 3. Curry and Green did everything in the minutes to decide the whole season, but not enough before the Raptors team was both strong and hungry for the championship.
Leonard is the hero of the Raptors in the NBA finals this season. He averaged 28.5 points, 9.8 rebounds and 4.2 assists, with a successful finishing performance of up to 43.4%. The former San Antonio Spurs star won the title of “Best Player” in the convincing final series. Leonard is now honored by the whole of Canada as a hero.
After a period of dominating the NBA with 3 championships in 4 years, the Warriors empire was overthrown in the NBA.
