Besting the reigning champs in Game 6 with a score of 114 – 110. The fans at the Oracle Arena were shocked as the Canadian franchise earned its first-ever championship title. Following years of unstoppable play, the Warriors were finally bested at this year’s high profile NBA Finals. Mounting an aggressive bid to tie the series, the Warrior kept the pressure coming for much of the game until Klay Thompson injured his knee in the 3rd quarter and his team could not fend off the Raptors off any longer.
Kawhi Leonard played a pivotal role in this monumental victory, amidst trade rumors. The Small Forward also won the Finals’ Most Valuable Player award presented by NBA Commissioner Adam Silver. This win was simply the perfect way to end what already was an impressive season. A season which saw the Canadian franchise consistently dominate to make it to the Finals for the first time ever. The win also ends the Golden State Warriors quest for an NBA Championship three-peat.
Congratulations to the Toronto Raptors on their history-making victory.
