Golden State Warriors vs Toronto Raptors
NBA Finals Game 1
|Toronto Raptors||Golden State Warriors|
The 2019 NBA Finals series gets underway today with the Golden State Warriors travelling to face the Toronto Raptors in game 1. Join The Roar for live scores from the match, starting from 11am AEST.
Golden State are going into their fifth consecutive finals series, having won three championships in the last four years, denied absolute dominance only by the remarkable 4-3 upset series in which they were defeated by LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The Raptors, on the other hand, have the chance to win their first ever championship and are playing in their first finals series. This is a massive opportunity for the franchise and one that they will be desperate not to let slip
Kevin Durant is missing for the Warriors in this game and currently not expected to get back in time for Game 2 either, which gives the Raptors a golden opportunity to set themselves up with two wins on home before they host Games 3 and 4.
With Kawhi Leonard on fire so far during the playoffs, Toronto are in a strong position to get the win today and set themselves up nicely. They’ll enter as favourites in the betting markets.
