Warriors’ Klay Thompson suffers torn ACL in loss to Toronto

Celebs React to Toronto Raptors Winning NBA Finals 2019 – See the Tweets!

The Raptors victory on Thursday night in Oakland, California, put the finishing touches on a remarkable 4-2 best-of-seven series upset that denied the Warriors a fourth title in five years and marked the first National Basketball Association title for a team outside the United States.

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

Leonard is the third player to win Finals MVP with two franchises, joining only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and LeBron James.

A drama-filled NBA Finals concluded with one more dramatic report.

"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.

The Warriors, who lost Kevin Durant to a ruptured Achilles in Game Five, were dealt another crushing blow late in the third quarter of a tight game when Thompson came down awkwardly after a shot attempt.

Bloggers criticised for taking 'insensitive' photos at the Chernobyl site
Reuters reports that one Chernobyl tourist agency has seen a 40 percent increase in bookings since the show aired on TV. Mazin Tweeted "If you visit, please remember that a awful tragedy occurred here".

The problem is the Warriors did not have a timeout, which gave the Raptors a free throw and possession in the Bay Area.

Thompson, who was fouled on the play, was in obvious pain and headed toward the locker room but suddenly reappeared to shoot his free throws, which if he did not shoot would have made him ineligible to come back later in the game.

"But it's just the way it's gone".

Leonard averaged 28.5 points, 9.8 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 2.0 blocks and 1.2 steals per game for Toronto over the course of their six-game series with the Warriors.

Fireworks lit up the square as the crowd sang Queen's triumphal anthem "We Are the Champions", while others kissed, danced and shouted the team's name. Now the Warriors must decide what to do about next year's roster.
