The Toronto Raptors have a chance to make history on Monday night.
They’ll host the Golden State Warriors in Game 5 of the 2019 NBA Finals with a chance to clinch their first championship in franchise history.
Despite being the league’s second-best team in the regular season, the Raptors we considered to be underdogs against the Warriors – and their championship pedigree – heading into the Finals.
The teams split the first two games of the series in Toronto, then the Raptors took over when the series shifted to Oakland. Toronto won Games 3 and 4 easily in Oracle Arena, taking a commanding 3-1 series lead.
Kawhi Leonard has been an unstoppable force for the Raptors this postseason, with that trend continuing through the finals. Leonard’s 34.2 points per game have helped Toronto reach its first ever NBA Finals appearance, with another win bringing a title north of the border.
With Golden State on the brink of elimination, Kevin Durant will play in Game 5 after missing the last 10 games due to injury.
