Dino-mite! Raptors win Canada's first National Basketball Association championship

This game started with Kyle Lowry, after being maligned for having a rough ending to game five as the Warriors escaped elimination, coming out like a man on fire.

The tight game on Thursday came down to the Raptors making shots down the stretch. Being effective defensively, creating shots for his teammates, and getting his own offense easily, as the Raptors built a lead at halftime.

While that was quite a haymaker for the Raptors, the Warriors were not deterred, and Klay Thompson led the way in the opening minutes.

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

"But it's just the way it's gone".

Botswana High Court scraps anti-gay laws
A High Court in Botswana has ruled to scrap anti-gay laws that threatened offenders with a jail sentence of up to seven years. "People have been hiding", she said , adding that the High Court's decision "can make a massive change for our lives".

Thompson was injured after being fouled by Toronto's Danny Green and landing awkwardly on a breakaway dunk attempt with 2:22 left in the third quarter as the Warriors, down 3-2, fought to keep their season alive.

Klay returned briefly to shoot free throws after tearing his ACL. VanVleet's shooting has been incredible throughout the last two rounds of the playoffs, and incredibly timely, and this game was no different.

For the second time in his nine-year career, Kawhi Leonard has been named Finals MVP. Will he return to a Toronto team that could be favorites to repeat as champions?

Adding to National Basketball Association history, the last five games of the finals series were won by the away team, equalling the record set by Boston-Milwaukee in 1974 and tied by Chicago-Phoenix in 1993.

Drake is so close his dream of the Toronto Raptors taking home their first National Basketball Association championship. But when Warriors' guard Kevin Durant, the two-time defending Finals MVP who went down with an injury during the playoffs and again during Game 5 of the Finals, the Warriors needed to rely on their other stars.
