This 2019 final is going to be a good one. It is the Toronto Raptors Vs. Golden State Warriors. After this finals appearance, the Warriors will have been to the Finals five straight years in a row. Their starting lineup is crazy. They have Stephen Curry, Draymond Green, Kevin Durant, Demarcus Cousins, and Klay Thompson. This strong, powerful, and feared team has come back to be named world champions once again. Now I am going to talk about the Toronto Raptors. They are a very strong team that has fought their way to here and deserve it. Toronto has not had any really recent finals appearance, but that does not mean that they can’t pull this one-off. Here are the Raptors starters. Kyle Lowry, Danny Green, Kawhi Leonard, Pascal Siakam, and Marc Gasol. This Toronto team is very scrappy and will not stop at anything to be world champs. I can relate this team to the 1989 Detroit Pistons world champs team. They played scrappy, dirty, and they wanted to win more than anyone else. This is how I think Toronto is going to play. Now let’s get down to the differences between these two teams. You probably know every single starter on the Warriors, and you probably only know two to three players on Toronto depending who you are. I think the Warriors are going to win for a couple of reasons. They have an NBA final streak and they probably have more confidence built up, they have knockdown shooters that can hit threes, twos, and that can dunk. You name it they have that player. The Warriors have way more experience and have more of a final winning team. The Warriors have a more difficult division that brings more challenge and prepares them for this moment, and Toronto has a hard division it’s just not as difficult as the Warriors division. I think the final score of the first game is going to be 112-118 Warriors win game one.
