The Raptors, led by Kawhi Leonard's 36 points, 12 rebounds and four steals, defeated the Warriors 105-92 on Friday (Saturday AEST) in Oakland to take a commanding 3-1 lead in the NBA Finals. Pascal Siakam added 19 points. Kawhi Leonard had 31 points to lead all scorers through three, while Klay Thompson's 22 points led the Warriors.
But with the city of Toronto showing utter adulation towards Leonard and the Raptors on the cusp of on National Basketball Association championship, there is more uncertainty with respect to Leonard's free agency this summer. There were loud chants for the team and for Leonard, which angered the Warriors supporters in what had always been the NBA's loudest arena.
Still, the Clippers could be major players for a number of free agents this summer, including Leonard. "You look at the series, you look at the games and at some point everyone, it's like having a auto". Most importantly, he did not suffer a concussion as a result of the elbow to the face. According to Mediabase, three Drake songs in regular rotation saw significant drops in the past two weeks - "In My Feelings" went from two plays to one, "Passionfruit" from six plays to zero and "One Dance" from three to zero, while "Hold On We're Going Home" with Majid Jordan went from four plays to none. Six Raptors stepped up to score at least nine points and the team was brilliant at the free throw line (23-of-24), turning the tables on a Warriors group that had been almost flawless at the stripe throughout the series.
A billboard strategically placed near Oracle Arena had warned the Warriors what was coming. We don't make that final call ... he don't really even make that final call. His body will tell him if he can get out there or not. The Raptors outshot the Warriors, 54.5% to 35% in the period.
In a play that summed up the first half from an offensive perspective for the Raptors, Marc Gasol missed a wide-open three in the dying seconds. They couldn't hit shots either. Curry's 3-pointer with 3 minutes left pulled Golden State within eight and gave the Warriors a chance. "He's tough and he wants to play". Curry (27 points), Draymond Green (10) and Looney (10) were the team's only other players in double figures.

McDonald also explained that Schaup-Werner's family requested for her body to be sent back to the USA for further investigation. McDonald said that was not something the family was aware of before, and they want an independent medical review in the U.S.
The only team to overcome a 3-1 deficit in the Finals was the LeBron James-led Cleveland Cavaliers, who beat the Warriors in 2016. Toronto made up for their three-point shooting woes at the line, where the team was a ideal 7-for-7 in the quarter.
Entering Friday's Game 4, the Warriors had lost two of their first three games to the Raptors playing without him. What changed in those 12 minutes? Which is one of the reasons the Raptors acquired Green in the deal that sent DeMar DeRozan to San Antonio and brought Leonard to Toronto.
Thirty-three-year-old Angie Taylor and 31-year-old Tyler Seaton of Cambridge, Ont., say they were lined up Friday afternoon for Game 4, but got back right back in line for Game 5 after the final buzzer sounded. We hope to have him but, you know, we'll see what happens.
"Klay was awesome", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.
Bradley Cooper And Irina Shayk Split After 4 Years
Lady Gaga kept insisting that she and Cooper were just friends, and she was engaged to talent agent Christian Carino. Earlier this week, it was reported their romance was " hanging by a thread ".
"That's what we did a few years ago against OKC".
Both showed their usefulness right away defending, playmaking, scoring and giving Curry more help than he'd had in Game 3. So that's our focus now. We won three games. "We win one, then we'll build on that".
What should concern the Warriors is the fact that the Raptors won't rest on their laurels.
After the game, hundreds of Raptors faithful gathered above the team's bench and began chanting as if it were a Premier League soccer match.
"We're getting close", said one long-time Raptors staffer.
