'We brought it home': Toronto Raptors scoop first National Basketball Association title

Over the last two months as the Toronto Raptors marched towards their first championship in franchise history, the team's bandwagon filled out enormously.

The Alameda County Sheriff's Office in California is investigating Toronto Raptors president Masai Ujiri following a scuffle involving a sheriff's deputy after Friday's (NZT) game six of the NBA Finals at Oakland's Oracle Arena.

"It means a lot for our city and the country and for these players", Raptors coach Nick Nurse said, who didn't mind not winning it at home.

After a six-game series that has been consistently down double digits from recent years, the defeat of the Golden State Warriors last night by the first non-American team to ever hoist the Larry O'Brien Championship trophy actually found an even keel for the National Basketball Association and the Disney-owned network. "This is being part of that win, we are actually paying our little $50 to be part of something that is a huge collective across Canada".

Thompson was fouled by Raptors guard Danny Green as he went up for a breakaway dunk and nearly immediately clutched his knee in pain.

Las Vegas Superbook has James' Los Angeles Lakers - who remain in hot pursuit of Anthony Davis - followed by the Milwaukee Bucks and L.A. Clippers, considered a prime contender to sign Kawhi Leonard. Kyle Lowry and Pascal Siakam each led the Raptors in scoring with 26 points and Fred VanVleet chipped in 22 off the bench.

"Congrats, bro", Curry could be heard saying.

Leonard is one of several marquee potential free agents, a group that includes Kyrie Irving, Kemba Walker, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson.

'Yo Klay, when you're wakeboarding this summer, when you're wakeboarding in your Quicksilver shorts, you know what time it is, when you see me, you better wave, friendly too, ' he said before the live video ended.

During a viewing party in Jurassic Park outside of Scotiabank Arena, Drake was seen spraying champagne once the Raptors defeated the Golden State Warriors.

"We'll be thinking about this one, it's tough", said Curry, who had 21 points in the loss.

"So I'm really proud of the way that we fought until the end and this five-year run has been awesome", he.
