Pascal Siakim was force to be
reckon with in Game 1
After 48 days we finally arrived at the first NBA Finals outside these United States last night as the Toronto Raptors, the entire country of Canada and Drake battled against the defending champion Golden State Warriors to see who will reach four wins first and ascend to the top of the mountain! The Raptors historically have not fared well in Game 1’s as they were 3 – 15 coming into the Finals but the Warriors have as they were on a twelve game winning streak in Game 1’s and since Kevin Durant went out and did not play last night, they were 5 – 0. The Warriors put the first points on the board by way of a free throw by Steph Curry and the 1st period was tightly contested, but with 8 points from Marc Gasol, who finished with 20 points and 7 rebounds which gave the Raptors the 4 point edge at the end of the 1st. Midway through the 2nd, center DeMarcus Cousins, who tore his left his quad in the first round, came off the bench to play in his first NBA Finals, finished with 3 points, 2 steals and 2 assists after eight minutes of play, but the Raptors keep pressing to outscore the Warriors 34 – 28 in the 2nd and take a 10 point lead into the half 59 – 49. 

Although "quiet", Kawhi Leonard
had a nice all around game
Coming out of the half, the Warriors started to gain a little momentum as Curry had a decent game with 34 points and Draymond Green put up his fifth triple-double of the playoffs of 10, 10 and 10, but the Warriors had no answer for Pascal Siakim aka Spicey P, who netted 13 in the period to finish with a career high of 32 basket filling points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists as the Warriors cut the lead to 8 to end the 3rd. The Warriors Achilles heel were their defense in transition and turnovers, which they committed 17 and the Raptors politely converted those TO’s into 17 points. Although the Warriors bench outscored the Raptors bench 36 – 25, they weren’t able to capitalize and get over the hump and despite a “pedestrian” night from Kawhi Leonard, who netted 23 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists, the Raptors didn’t dial the pressure back in the 4th and outscored the Warriors by 2 and the Raptors notched their first NBA Finals win with a 118 – 109 victory.

Mike D'Antoni is left scratching
his head after ending
contract negotiations 
For your NBA Quick News & Notes, Mike D’Antoni, head coach of the Houston Rockets, who has one year remaining on his contract, ended contract negotiations with the club as they could not come to terms on an extension as the negotiations centered on a performance based extension for the coach.
