Toronto Raptors win first NBA title

The Toronto Raptors beat defending champions the Golden State Warriors 114-110 to win their first NBA title.

The Raptors won the best-of-seven series 4-2, with Kawhi Leonard named the NBA Finals Most Valuable Player after averaging 28.5 points.

"It was heck of a 12 months," Toronto head coach Nick Nurse said after his side clinched a first title in their 24-year history.

"This is why I play basketball; this is what I work hard for," added Leonard.

The Warriors, who headed into the finals with back-to-back wins and had won three of the past four NBA crowns, were without injured Kevin Durant and lost Klay Thompson to a knee injury in the third quarter.



Congrats to the Raptors! I don't follow basketball, so I haven't seen any of their journey, but I have seen a lot of hype about them.

Will they be able to keep it up in future years?

I had so many near heart attacks during this series. Epic win by an epic team against another epic team.

I haven't been this happy since the Jays made two journeys to the promised land two years ago.

WE THE NORTH. LONG LIFE CANADA!
