NBA FINALS GAME 1: WARRIORS VS RAPTORS

DID YOU FEEL THE EXCITEMENT IN THE AIR? TORONTO KEPT THEIR SAME ENERGY FROM THE ECF AS THEY SECURED GAME 1’S WIN!

109 GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS

118 TORONTO RAPTORS

TORONTO LEADS SERIES:1-0

1ST HALF:

HAVING 9 DAYS OFF FOR THE WARRIORS SHOWED ITSLEF UGLY SELF IN THE FIRST HALF. THEY HAD A LOT OF TURNOVERS AND A LOT OF THEM WERE SELF CREATED ! THE LACK OF FOCUS EARLY IN THE GAME CREATED AN UPHILL BATTLE ALL NIGHT .

CURRY HAD A GOOD FIRST QUARTER BUT WAS A NON FACTOR IN THE 2ND QUARTER STEPH HAD 13P AT HALFTIME AND HIS SLASPH BROTHER KLAY HAD ONLT 9POINTS.

WATCH KLAY TAKE A CLEAN TO MANY STEPS TRAVEL DUNK LOL. πŸ‘‡πŸ½

OVERALL THE WARRIORS DID NOT SHOOT THE BALL WELL. TORONTO HELD THE WARRIORS SHOOTING PERCENTAGE TO UNDER 40% FROM THREES AND TWO’S. TORONTO’S DEFENSE WAS GREAT!

TORONTO ESTABLISHED THEMSELVES AFTER COACH NICK NURSE CALLED A TIMEOUT IN THE 2ND QUARTER. AFTER THE WARRIORS STARTED TO MAKE A RUN. THE TEAM RESPONDED WELL BUT FOR KAWHI PICKED UP 3 FOULS & 8POINTS IN THE FIRST HALF.

MARC GASOL WAS A HUGE X FACTOR AS HE WAS BEASTING 14P 5R. HE DID MOST OF HIS DAMAGE IN THE FIRST QUARTER. SIAKEM WAS READY TO BALL HE CHIPPED IN WITH 9 POINTS. THEIR BENCH FED OFF THE CROWD THE PLAYED WELL AND VANVLEET WAS STILL ON πŸ”₯ FROM 3. HE GOT HIMSELF 12 QUICK POINTS. TORONO IS HUNGRY AND THEY PLAY REALLY WELL!

TORONTO RAN GOOD BALL MOVEMENT AND WERE BY 10 AT HALF TIME. EVERY TIME THE WARRIORS WOULD MAKE A RUN TO CUT IT CLOSE THE RAPTORS WOULD MAKE THEIR OWN RUN!

HALFTIME

59 TOR

LEADING SCORERS AT HALFTIME:

GSW CURRY- 13P

TOR GASOL- 14P

*STEPH CURRY FINALS MILESTONE*

CHECK OUT EVERY 3P SHOT HE’S MADE IN THE NBA FINALS πŸ‘‡πŸ½

2ND HALF

FEATURED LOTS OF SIAKEM ! WHEN TORONTO WAS RUNNING OR IN THE HALF-COURT THEY WERE LOOKING FOR HIM AND HE WAS DELIVERING! NO ONE COULD GAURD HIM! HE WAS PLAYING ULTRA AGGRESSIVE BY USING HIS SIGNATURE SPIN MOVE AND VARIOUS EURO STEPS! SIAKEM WAS SO DOMINATED THAT HE MADE 11 STRAIGHT SHOTS IN A ROW! THE WARRIORS HAD NO ANSWERS FOR HIM!

MARC GASOL FOULED OUT LAST NIGHT BUT I LOVED HIS ATTITUDE IN THE GAME. MARC GASOL AND KYLE LOWERY SHOWED UP IN DIFFERENT WAYS THEY BOTH SHOWED EXTREME TOUGHNESS. LOWERY EVEN DREW 2 CHARGE CALLS! HE LEADS THE PLAYOFFS WITH THAT STAT!

CURRY & KLAY TRIED TO KEEP THE GAME CLOSE ENOUGH FOR STRIKING DISTANCE. STEPH CURRY WAS IN A LOT OF PICK AND ROLLS IN THE 2ND HALF! HE HAD TO BE AGGRESSIVE HE WENT TO THE FREE THROW LINE A LOT WHICH HE WAS A PERFECT 14/14.

DRAYMOND HAD AN DECENT GAME AND FINISHED WITH A TRIPLE DOUBLE 10P 10R 10A. UNFORTUNATELY HE DID SHOOT WELL LAST NIGHT HE WAS 2/9 AND THAT HURT THE WARRIORS BECAUSE HE WAS LEFT WIDE OPEN ON SEVERAL PLAYS AND HE DID NOT CONVERT THE OPEN SHOT.

THE POSTIVE FOR GOLDENS STATE IS THEY FINISHED THE END OF 3RD QT KNOCKING A PERFECT 21/21 FROM THE FREE THROW LINE.

THE RAPTORS HAVE A TEAM FULL OF VERTEANS AND IT SHOWN TONIGHT AS THEY REMAINED IN CONTROL AND COMPOSED. THE WARRIORS CUT THE LEAD AND THEY HAD A CHANCE BUT A HUGE MISSED PUSH IN THE BACK CALL WITH LESS THAN 2MINUTES CHANGED THE COMPLEXION OF THE WARRIORS ATTITUDE AS THEY ALMOST IMPLODED AND DRAYMOND ALMOST GOT A TECHNICAL.

FOR TORONTO THIS WAS A GREAT TEAM VICTORY !

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME IN NBA HISTORY THAT THE NBA FINALS WILL BE PLAYED OUT OF THE UNITED STATES! THE GLOBAL IMPACT OF THIS SERIES IS HUGE FOR THE NBA!
