WE THE NORTH

Congratulations to the Toronto Raptors.

Last night in game 6 of the NBA Finals the Raptors defeated the Golden State Warriors, 114-110 to capture the series 4-2.

Dray-K

Kawhi Leonard was named MVP of the series.  Leonard becomes the third player in NBA history to be named MVP of the Finals for two different teams (Kareem Abdul-Jabber and LeBron James are the other two).

The winning team in all 6 games in the series shot a higher % from distance.

Toronto played four games at Oracle this season and won all four.

The Raptors do not have one single lottery pick on their roster.

Draymond Green of the Warriors had 11 points, 13 assists and a postseason career-high-19 rebounds for his third career triple-double in the finals.

Only LeBron James and Magic Johnson have more triple doubles…

“A tough-minded group.  They play a lot of basketball.  They play unselfishly and they play defense,” said Raptors head coach Nick Nurse. 

STAYIN’ ALIVE

Trailing in the NBA Finals, 3-1, and facing elimination,  the Golden State Warriors went North to Toronto and beat the Raptors last night, 106-105.

The series is now at 3-2 as they play Game 6 Thursday night in Oracle.

Golden State made 20 3’s last night.

Steph Curry and Klay Thompson combined to make 12 of the 20.
