    Toronto is about to go up 3 to 1.

    I'm starting to think The North might be able to take it from the Champs.

    Ok, I can breathe now even though the lead was not gonna be caught with the time remaining.

    The last one is the hardest though.

    Cheers,

    That's a hell of a tough team. They're sure not scared of GS.

    How happy would you be if nobody won? That’s the underlying question.

    This is an uphill battle for GS without Durant...
    Would have been a lot more fun to watch at least.

    Leonard is playing out of his mind... and I'm not 100% convinced that Durant would have made enough difference anyway.

    I'm a long suffering Suns fan, don't really care who wins, I just hope for a game 7!!

    Everyone thought the Golden State / Houston series was the “real finals”. Maybe it was actually Toronto / Philly? Which makes losing it on that Kawhi quadruple doink corner jumper as time expired in game 7 all that much harder to take. But Leonard really is the dominant player in the playoffs this year and I he fully deserves this. And, damn, I’m happy to see someone other than LeBron knock off the Warriors. And DOMINATE them really. It’s watching an underdog do what nobody expected and put the current dynasty on notice that it’s days are numbered, if not downright over. It’s possible GS will win three in a row, two in Toronto, but nobody who’s watched this series so far would bet on it...

    Durant is playing tonight.

    Will be interesting to see if that changes things enough to tip this in GSs favour.

    Cheers,

    He'll need to be 100% KD, and I'm not sure he can do that after a month-long layoff. We'll see.

    It sure would be nice to see a different NBA champ, though.

    I think Toronto finishes it tonight, but GS goes down fighting. It's been a great series - Toronto has earned r e s p e c t.

    Pascal Siakem has a good shot at being an NBA superstar. There are so many great players now. IMHO it's a special time.

    Toronto beat GS both games during the regular season - I have to figure Golden State was pretty healthy for one or both of those games. Golden State is a great team, but I'll be pretty surprised if they, or anyone, could beat the Raptors three straight with two of the three in Toronto.
