The Golden State Warriors take for Its 2019 NBA Championship on the Toronto Raptors.
The Warriors will be looking to win their third straight title and their fourth in the past five years, while the Raptors will want to win their first-ever title. The Warriors got past the Clippers, Rockets and Trail Blazers to win the Western Conference, while the Raptors defeated the Magic, 76ers, and Bucks to win the Eastern Conference. Golden State is all about a 3-1 favorite to win the best-of-seven show, but the Raptors will possess the home-court advantage.
The Warriors will be without Kevin Durant for at least the first game of this series, but Golden State still has a potent lineup featuring Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green. Golden State may get Durant back at some stage in the show and they might also get DeMarcus Cousins back from harm.
The Raptors are directed by Kawhi Leonard that has been spectacular in the playoffs, averaging 31.2 points and 8.8 rebounds per game. Toronto has additionally become a strong play of late from backup guard Fred VanVleet who has scored in double-figures in 3 straight games.
Golden State may be without Durant, but so long as they have Curry in the lineup they’re tough to beat. Curry is averaging 35.8 points at the previous five Golden State wins. The Raptors defeated the Warriors at both regular-season meetings, winning 131-128 at home in late November and 113-93 in Golden State in mid-December.
