The Toronto Raptors have been crowned the 2018/2019 NBA champions after taking home game six of the NBA championship series finals against Golden State Warriors by 114-110 on Thursday night.
The win means that Toronto Raptors became the first ever team outside the US to do so, winning an NBA championship, and it looked somehow easy for them, against the defending Champions, Golden State Warriors.
Thursday’s game was tight, going back and forth between the Raptors and the Golden State Warriors. But the Raptors knew what they needed to do, which was a win, as they took the game in the end with a 114-110 for a 4-2 series victory in front of the home crowd.
The game ended the 2019 championship series and was a first-time win for the Raptors, who made their NBA Finals debut in their 24th season.
Kawhi Leonard, the All-Star forward Toronto acquired last summer from San Antonio, was named Finals MVP for the second time. Leonard is the third player to win the award with more than one franchise, along with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and LeBron James.
Point guard Kyle Lowry and forward Pascal Siakam put up spectacular performances as well, each with 26 points.
A big congratulations to the entire team, and to our very own, Ujiri for believing and making millions of dreams come true.
