Raptors One Win Away from National Basketball Association title

Open this

In case you haven't been keeping up: the Golden State Warriors are having a tough time during the NBA Finals and on Friday they lost, yet again, to the Toronto Raptors at home. Switching onto Milwaukee's Giannis Antetokounmpo in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals swung that series in Toronto's direction, as the Raptors swept the final four games to advance to their first NBA Finals.

The stitches repaired the cut under VanVleet's eye, but he did not suffer a concussion.

Now the Raptors can capture their first National Basketball Association title in the team's 24-year franchise history and bring the Larry O'Brien Trophy to Canada for the first time with a victory at home on Monday.

"Kawhi's two big threes to start the half really I thought changed the whole feel for everybody", Raptors coach Nick Nurse said of Leonard, who also hauled down 12 rebounds. "We have tried to just isolate every game". It caused the Golden State crowd to hit a new noise level in this series.

But doctors said Wednesday that 40 bodies had been pulled from the Nile, sending the death toll soaring to at least 108. Al-Mustafa says: "We will continue in our protests, resistance, strike and total civil disobedience".

The Warriors were hopeful that Thompson would be able to produce, but as Kerr noted before the game, they were going to watch him closely to make sure he was moving well on both ends of the floor.

And then they scored three points the rest of the way, before making the long, slow walk off the court and to the locker room. Toronto made up for their three-point shooting woes at the line, where the team was a flawless 7-for-7 in the quarter.

Late Friday night following the team's second win at Oracle Arena in Oakland, California, the Raptors' Twitter account shared a brief video that spoofed the iconic opening of "Full House" by substituting the faces of Raptors players for those of the sitcom's stars. He also had 12 points and four steals. But after sitting out Game 3, Klay Thompson is going to give it a go - in an effort to help his team avoid being put on the brink of elimination.

The 21-year-old completed a successful medical at Old Trafford on Thursday ahead of his move from the Championship outfit. James was in Manchester yesterday and is understood to have had a medical before joining up with the Wales squad.

Curry and Kevon Looney each have eight points for the Warriors. "We got to - we can draw on those experiences that we had back in the day and see what happens".

Golden State's hopes of a third straight title are hanging by a most precarious thread. If he does come back for Game 5, will it be enough to overcome the raucous atmosphere in the biggest sporting event in Toronto since Game 6 of the 1993 World Series?

It was especially jarring because the third quarter is typically when the Warriors take off. The Warriors went into the halftime break up 46-42.

With Game 4 in the offing - with the limping Warriors suddenly the Las Vegas underdogs to win the series - Curry vowed to clamp down on Green going forward.
