The Warriors Win A Thrilling Game 5, However Still Trail (3-2) In The NBA Final

June 11, 2019

The Golden State Warriors, bet from a three plus point(s) underdog, to a 1 point favorite, first playing with Kevin Durant, then not, as he was injured, won (106-105) at Toronto (Raptors) in game 5, however still trail the Raptors three games to two in the NBA final. Game 6 is in Oakland on Thursday night.

Klay Thompson hit two, as he and Steph Curry combined to hit three, three point shots as “G.S.” scored 9 straight points, to take a 3 point lead with 57 seconds remaining, after trailing by 6 points and Toronto having possession with about three and a half minutes remaining.

Kawhi Leonard, who finished with 26 points, had scored the Raptors last 10 points as they went on a (10-2) run and seemed ready to win their first title when they built the above referenced “up 6 with the ball” lead.

Curry led the scoring with 31 points while Klay, the son of two time NBA title winning player, Mychal Thompson, added 26. It should be noted that Dray Green appeared to get a piece of the ball on Kyle Lowry’s last second shot and that Durant had played well before being injured.

Toronto teams, which remember have won 6 straight final round entities, have now gone up (3-1), winning #’s 3 and 4, but then losing #5, in 3 straight final rounds.

The baseball Blue Jays did so, in both ’92 and ’93, each time winning the title in game 6.

In ’92, Toronto faced another Oakland team, the Athletics in a baseball “semi”/ALCS and leading 3 games to 1, lost a  game 5 on a Monday, as is what manifested yesterday. The Blue Jays won that series in six games.
