NBA Finals 2019: Warriors in fifth consecutive season
The Golden State Warriors qualified for the finals after a clear 4-0 sweep against Portland Trail Blazers. This is the fifth time in a row that the Californian team has qualified – a feat no other team had achieved since the legendary Boston Celtics of the 1960s.
Golden State has won three of the last four titles and now wants to secure the crown for the fourth time. This time, they will have to defeat the Toronto Raptors, who will be in the franchise for the very first time in their history.
While the Raptors focus on Kawhi Leonard with an average of 31.2 points in the playoffs, the Warriors had to give up Kevin Durant who was suffering from a calf injury. Instead the Splash Brothers around Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry should guarantee the success for the Dubs.
How the first games of the NBA Finals went
In game 1, however, this was not enough. Although the head chef put on 34 points, Golden State simply couldn’t stop Toronto. Pascal Siakam, in particular, made a strong final debut and led the Canadians to a 118-109 victory in the opening game.
In the second game, however, the Warriors made an impressive comeback and won 109-104 in Toronto, but had to cope with an injury from Klay Thompson. He dropped out in game 3, the Warriors had to admit defeat with 109:123 despite a Fabelleleistung of Curry. Also game 4 went with 92:105 to the Raptors, Toronto was now missing only one victory to win the title.
For game 5 in Toronto, however, Kevin Durant was fit again on the Warriors’ side. The two-time final MVP celebrated his comeback after a four-week break and was able to convince in the first minutes – but then he injured himself again. Durant is now likely to be out for a long time with an injury to the Achilles tendon.
Despite this harsh shock, the Warriors still managed a narrow 106:105 victory. Thus the Dubs prevented the Raptors from celebrating their championship prematurely. In game 6 in Oakland, they now have the chance again to bag the first championship in franchise history.
