NBA Playoffs: Golden State Warriors vs. Toronto Raptors
May 30, 2019 at 09:36 PM

The Quick Facts

  • Last night, the NBA Finals kicked off in Toronto with the first Finals game to ever be played outside the U.S. The two teams vying for the championship are the Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors.
  • This is the first time the Raptors have reached the final series, while the Warriors are in their fifth straight Finals appearance.
  • The Raptors took game 1, winning 118-109. Raptors’ power forward Pascal Siakam scored a playoff career-high 32 points, while Kawhi Leonard added 23 points and Marc Gasol had 20.
  • Golden State remained without Kevin Durant, the MVP of the last two NBA Finals, who got injured in the second round of the playoffs. Durant likely won’t play until Game 3 of the finals.
  • Game 2 of the series begins at 8:00 p.m. on Sunday, also in Toronto.
