The Golden State Warriors take for Its 2019 NBA Championship on the Toronto Raptors.
The Warriors will be looking to win their third consecutive title and their fourth in the past five years, although the Raptors will want to win their first name. The Warriors got past the Clippers, Rockets and Trail Blazers to win the Western Conference, although 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 series, but the Raptors will possess the home-court advantage.
The Warriors will be without Kevin Durant for the first game of the series, however, Golden State still has a powerful lineup comprising Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green. Golden State could get Durant back at some stage in the show and they may also get DeMarcus Cousins back from harm.
The Raptors are directed by Kawhi Leonard who 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 copy guard Fred VanVleet that has scored in double-figures in 3 consecutive games.
Golden State may be without Durant, but so long as they have Curry at the lineup they’re tough to beat. Curry is averaging 35.8 points in the last 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 at Golden State in mid-December.
