Longtime Raptors fan from P.E.I. reflects on Game 2 experience

"We've been through a lot", Iguodala said. "That's the only time I'm really happy, when I can say, 'Oh, we're doing it.' And we were doing it".

Game 1 of the Finals on ABC on Thursday scored a 10.1 overnight rating, down almost 20% from Game 1 in 2018 and in 2017.

Indeed, Thompson's injury-along with Kevon Looney, who suffered what was officially ruled a left chest contusion in the second quarter-keeps Toronto's hopes alive, even as this series shifts to Oracle Arena on Wednesday.

"You've got to play physical basketball, but you've got to be able to adjust and all those kinds of things and try to stay out of it, and you've got to avoid the silly (fouls) too", Nurse said.

After falling into multiple double-digit holes in the first half, the Warriors took off in the third quarter like so many playoff games before.

You'll ruin the memory and they likely won't sleep anyway. We'll see. He pulled his hamstring.

Kerr said the students who organized the "March For Our Lives" have motivated him to be more active in advocating for stricter gun laws and supporting the teenage activists. We're betting Drake is glad Obama won't be back in Toronto for Game 5.
