Raptors make National Basketball Association history after dethroning Warriors

Celebs React to Toronto Raptors Winning NBA Finals 2019 – See the Tweets!

Players Kyle Lowry and Pascal Siakam each scored 26 points while Kawhi Leonard and reserve Fred VanVleet both had 22 as Toronto won the best-of-seven series four games to two. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case, and Thompson will now be forced to undergo a lengthy rehab process, and likely won't be playing again anytime soon.

All of Canada might celebrate well into Friday morning as the Toronto Raptors pulled off feats unseen in National Basketball Association history when they defeated the Golden State Warriors on Thursday night. "And I'm happy that my hard work paid off".

"I came to a team, a new coach, and that mindset was the same as mine".

"It means a lot for our city and the country and for these players", Raptors coach Nick Nurse said, who didn't mind not winning it at home.

Leonard's 732 points over the course of these 24 playoff games sit third on the league's all-time record list for total points in one postseason.


Prominent rapper and Raptors global ambassador Drake, meanwhile, said the results proved the Raptors' team spirit. Will he return to a Toronto team that could be favorites to repeat as champions?

"We did this off of love", Drake said after the game. "Two months of playoff basketball, they never seemed exhausted to me".

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the agent of Klay Thompson revealed the Warriors' All-Star guard tore the ACL in his left knee during Game 6 on Thursday night.

"We'll be thinking about this one, it's tough. This is what I work out for", Leonard said. "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". "But I definitely don't think it's over".
