    Steph Curry changed the game. To me he's the real star of that team. He still has a long career ahead of him.

    Now that it's almost a certainty that the Raps will win the title, I don't feel nearly as bad about what they did to the Bucks.

    Year. I'm sure Trono will do all to close out the series on Monday. Hopefully no one gets too hurt. My god if they lose on Monday it could possibly go 7 games, then you never know. I wouldn't start celebrating yet if I'm Toronto.

    Although I feel that the Raptors are the better team right now, living in the Toronto area for more than 50 years and our history of losing sports franchises, I wouldn't dream of celebrating victory at this point.

    I'm rooting for the Raptors. Jeez, Canada has teams in all major league sports except the NFL.

    Apart from the Blue Jays World Series wins in 92 & 93, and MLS in 2017, we've won zero...in 52 years.

    I'm rooting for them but I am insanely jealous. I think the Bucks could've handled the Warriors too.

    With the injuries they have almost any team could have.

    I feel bad for Durant. He obviously had a more serious injury than anyone thought.

    ^ They're saying it's not the same injury. This may be an Achilles.

    which is potentially much worse. if it's indeed a torn Achilles he's missing 2020, which means he's probably opting into his Warriors contract ($31 mil to go to rehab?), which throws so much out of whack for next year.

    really wild game...that 4th Q was one of the best I've ever seen - Kawhi balling out, the Warriors sudden comeback, a bizarre timeout, several odd calls on the floor, blatant mental mistakes, Green's superhero block...really had it all

    Another site was posting how the fans reacted when Durant went down and someone posted this:

    "They're Canadians, what else do they have to get excited about except scraping ice off their windshields."

    to be fair to the Raps crowd Ibaka did get a steal & drew a foul right as the injury happened which I think is probably what they were following - I really doubt too many in the arena saw what happened the way the TV cameras did

    I canít handle the walking and especially the palming. Always entertaining when the uncles(me included) watch a game with the nephews. Itís about 15 of us. A player palms the ball and takes 4 steps for a flying dunk and the younguns are going wild! I tell them itís really hard to guard someone who is continuously turning the ball over and itís easy to look good if you take 4 steps. Then someone will execute a great pick, a pass is made for a backdoor layup and the old guys are high fiving while the kids are bored because he didnít jam and hang on the rim. I tell them if they wanted style points, go watch figure skating in the other room. Fun!
