The defending champions Golden State Warriors have a chance to return the result 3-3 before playing the decisive match at the Toronto Raptors yard. But during the day the pitchers are ineffective, they have to watch their opponents take the throne right on their home field.
Raptors quality team under the leadership of superstar Kawhi Leonard for the first time crowned the NBA champion. Canadians burst with emotion 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.
In the decisive match, they defeated the Warriors with the score 114-110. The Raptors played well in the first two innings leading the Warriors 60-57. Next, the home team brought the match to the starting line after the third round as usual. But the injury of key pitcher Klay Thompson caused the Warriors to collapse and fail in the decisive half.
Warriors enter the NBA with the most highly-rated team in NBA history. Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and DeMarcus Cousins - The Warriors’ five main positions are all on the All-Star level. However, coach Steve Kerr’s team suffered injuries and abuse at the most important time.
In the first four games, the main scorer Durant was absent due to injury. By the time the 30-year-old superstar returned in game 5, he only played a few minutes, before a serious injury again.
And Thompson sat outside in game 3. Curry and Green did everything at the decisive minutes of the season, but not enough before the Raptors team was strong and had a desire to win.
