The Toronto Raptors are just one game away to win their first NBA Championship as they’re now on a commanding 3-1 series lead against the Golden State Warriors.
Kawhi Leonard is still consistent in their 2019 NBA Finals match versus the Dubs in terms of scoring as he scored 36 points along with his 12 rebounds.
The Raptors used the third quarter to pound the injury bug Warriors and then they carried the momentum to the final quarter for them to secure the victory and give more pressure to their opponent.
Klay Thompson returned to the Golden State lineup after he sat out in Game 3 due to an injury.
He delivered 28 points in his comeback game where he also shoots six three-pointers. He kept his team in the game especially in the first half as Stephen Curry was heavily guarded. Yet, his output and his presence isn’t enough to change the outcome of their battle.
Stephen Curry who was almost unstoppable in Game 3 as he dropped 47 points, in Game 4, though he scored 27 points but it appears that he needed more swishes for them to tie the series.
Fred VanVleet who is the main defensive player to cover Curry scored 8 points but was pulled out from the floor when he suffered a cut under his eyes.
The Warriors continue to play the series without their superstar player Kevin Durant who is still nursing an injury.
Game 5 of the 2019 NBA Finals will return to Toronto and will be played on June 11, 2019 at 9:00 AM (PHI time).
