Warriors outlast Raptors to square NBA Finals at 1-1

"Since he's been here I've seen him hit several game-winners".

The Warriors stopped Drake from getting his second Infinity Stone on Sunday night when they prevailed over the Toronto Raptors to tie the series 1-1.

The Toronto rapper, whose saucy post-season attire has created a buzz the last couple of games, wore a black hoodie Sunday with Macaulay Culkin's famous open-mouthed face from "Home Alone", over the word "KEVIN?!?!?!?!" - apparently trolling injured Warriors star Kevin Durant.

"It was all about our defense and we held them to 37 percent and forced 15 turnovers and guarded the 3-point line well", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.

Kawhi Leonard had 34 points and 14 rebounds for the Raptors.

The weeknight games against the Golden State Warriors are all starting at 9 p.m. ET. meaning regular time ends at 11:30 p.m. or later.

Suddenly, Steph Curry scored 6 points in the final 53.7 seconds of the first half and then came the Warriors' big third quarter. We got more games to play.

With that, the lead was gone for good.

There are plenty of exhausted kids showing up to school these days, so Schafer says to remind them they got to do something special. What makes it all the more interesting is that the two are naturally pitted against one another by way of the Warriors playing the Raptors in this year's NBA Finals. We got to go out there and get one, right, that's all we got to do is get one.

With former U.S. President Barack Obama and professional golfers Sergio Garcia and Rory McIlroy among those in the crowd, the Warriors shook off a slow start and now head home looking to inch closer to a fourth title in five years. Iggy's shot, from the left wing, turned a perilous 2-point lead with six seconds left into a 5-point lead the Raptors could not overcome. Shawn Livingston made a good catch and flung it to Iguodala, who drained the 3 and sealed the Game 2 win to even the Finals.

The injuries had Golden State reeling, and struggling to score.

"Everyone that I've talked to and is connected to his group agree the Raptors have done what they needed to do (to sign Leonard)", Thorpe said. "We'll see. He pulled his hamstring; he thinks it's minor - I don't know what that means going forward." . "I also pay a lot of attention to the numbers in Canada, where we set an all-time record for viewership".

Meanwhile, the rest of the Raptors other than Leonard didn't fare much better.

Chalk it up to the absence of LeBron James, who played in the past eight NBA Finals, or to a small US fanbase for the Raptors.
