It’s Time To Pick A Winner!

This first game of the NBA finals really shocked me.  I really thought the Warriors would pull this off because they are so used to this level of pressure, but now I am thinking it is time for the Warriors to pass their finals torch to the Raptors.  Now I think after seeing the Raptors play the way they did in game one, I really think they have a good chance at winning it all.  The Raptors star player Kawhi Leonard in the game had a 23 point game, with eight rebounds, five assists, and one steal.  That is a crazy good game, and he is up against one of the worlds greatest teams.  His teammates also had a good game, it’s not like the Cavaliers when they had Lebron and he carried the whole team to the finals this Raptors team has fill-in players that can play ball.  The Raptors are a way more scrappy team that wants to win it more than anyone else.  They want the ball more, they make plays when they need to be made, and they are not afraid of anyone.  Nothing is going to stand in their way.

If the Warriors can’t get Kevin Durant back for this game tonight the Warriors franchise will be over.  Kevin Durant is that once in a while special player that is tall, can dunk, can do an MJ floater, and a playmaker.  So if the Warriors don’t get him back tonight and they lose the Raptors will have the confidence and advantage to wrap up the finals.  When a team as good, scrappy, and as smart as the Raptors has the advantage of a series as important as this, the Warriors will get the message that they are screwed.
