The Toronto Raptors are the NBA’s 2019 champions, and they won it in Raptors style. The Raptors and Warriors had over a dozen lead exchanges. It came down to the fourth quarter where the game came down to the wire as the Raptors appear to like to take out their opponents. Marc Gasol was a non factor, but Serge Ibaka, Kyle Lowry, and Kawhi Leonard picked up the slack. It came down to Leonard sealing the deal for the last two point from the free throw line to take the Raptors to a definitive victory.
The Warriors fought to the very end, but never had enough gas to keep up with the Raptors. Cocky player, Klay Thompson went down with an injury and was taken out of the game. It can been seen from now in hearing the Warriors cry about their injured roster. The Raptors shocked the entire NBA along with many NBA analysis who never believed they could pull off a win against the Golden State Warriors.
Kawhi Leonard received most valuable player honors for the playoffs and series. We said it from the beginning that the Raptors are the better team in their match-up against the Warriors. Gamblers wagered big bucks on the Warriors to beat the Raptors. Some fans even believed the Warriors would sweep the Raptors. No respect was shown to the Raptors by the Warriors to be a match for them. We are guessing the people of Toronto will not sleep tonight.
