The Finals of the NBA Championships is upon us as Western Conference winners Golden State Warriors will be travelling to play the first game of this series against first time Eastern Conference victors Toronto Raptors on Thursday.
Golden State Warriors are the two-time defending champions of the NBA and are looking to the three-peat. The team has made the Finals five times in a row, and it has been a fabulous effort by this franchise. They have had to work hard this season as injuries has caused them a lot of problems, and with only a few games left to decide who is the best, stakes are only going to get higher. The side is still going to be without some key players, and this puts them in a vulnerable spot to not even put up a fight in this first fixture.
Meanwhile, Toronto Raptors are coming into the Finals of the NBA for the first time in the history of the franchise. The team fought back after being 2-0 down in the semi-finals, to win 4-2. They have shown tremendous fighting spirit, and their superstar in Kawhi Leonard has been in beast mode. He has not put a foot wrong in the playoffs, and he has the experience of leading a team to an NBA Championship. He is hungry to prove why he is the best player in the world.
