Toronto writes history, declared NBA champion

Toronto Raptors defeated last season's champion Golden State Warriors, with 114: 110 in the sixth final game to win the first NBA title in the club's history.

Raptors won the final series against Warriors 4: 2. Kawhi Leonard was declared the NBA Final Player of the Year, after averaging 28.5 in the final match.

"It was a hell of a season," said Toronto coach Nick Nurse, after his team secured the Canadian club's only title in their 24-year history.

"That's why I play basketball; for this I work hard, "added Leonardi.

The Warriors, who came to the final with the last two NBA titles and had won three of the last four championships, were in this challenge without Kevin Durantin injured, while also killing Klay Thompson due to a knee injury in the quarter third.

Stephen Curry had the opportunity to equalize the series but lost the trek when the Warriors were losing only one point (111: 110) before Leonard secured the victory for the guests.

This was Warriors' last match at the Oracle Arena before they moved to Chase Cetner in San Francisco.

Golden State Draymond Green, who scored 11 points, said: "Everyone in this team played heartily. However, that did not suffice for a bit. "

Raptors is the first Canadian club to win a major North American sporting title since Toronto Blue Jays won the Major League Baseball title in 1993.
