Congratulations to the TORONTO RAPTORS, 1st time NBA CHAMPIONS!

No Game 7 on Sunday! Klay Thompson ran up and jumped to the hoop full speed on a play defended by Danny Green, landed badly and instantly grabbed his left knee. Curry received and threw down the ball and sat on the court, knowing that with just about 2 minutes left in the 3rd Quarter, in a game the Raptors were trying to close out and win, that was it for the Warriors. In addition to that, a clutch 3 from Raptors’ VanVleet and Curry missing the 3-pt game winner with a good look when the Warriors had possession, down by 1 with 18s left in the game sealed the win for The North. It was asnif.it was God’s plan.

Kudos to the Warriors for indeed playing like Warriors and fighting like the Champions they are without KD and despite other injuries. But, it was inevitable. A consistent Kawhi Leonard, a thirsty Kyle Lowry who came out blazing in the 1st Quarter, Gasol who was not effective in scoring but obtained crucial offensive rebounds, the great defending by Danny Green, Siakam and Ibaka who scored when it counted in the 3rd and 4th and VanVleet who was on fire and scored the huge clutch 3 in the 4th along with the rest of a hard-working Raptors team, all deserved their 1st title win. That includes Jeremy Lin!

FINALS MVP went to KAWHI LEONARD! No surprise there! 👏👏👏

Raptors Road to their 1st NBA Title

Nobody thought at the beginning of the NBA Finals that the Raptors would take it, but as they upset the Celtics, took care of the 76ers and demolished the favourites in the East, the Bucks, their chances and desire to win became more and more evident. Their loyal fans knew it too. Well done and Congrats to THE NORTH! It’s an all weekend party in Jurassic Park and well, Canada! Oh Canada.
