Warriors star Stephen Curry is now No

Warriors star Stephen Curry is now No

"The fans are unbelievable, man".

As Toronto whipped itself into a frenzy the rest of Canada joined in, with cities across the country setting up their own "Jurassic Parks" just like the one outside ScotiaBank Arena for viewing parties. If you just boil it down to halfcourt stuff, I walk away from that game feeling fine. "I've never seen anything like that".

So we have to fix those things and get ready to play a game. They know what they're doing.

But there he was Thursday night, shooting 14 of 17 from the field to spark Toronto's 118-109 victory over Golden State.

"It was a great atmosphere", said Kerr. "It gets more attention because he's Drake".

Commissioner Adam Silver felt Drake went over the line in rubbing Raptors coach Nick Nurse's shoulders during an Eastern Conference final game, but also said that he appreciated the rapper's "super-fan status and I know he's beloved in the community of Toronto".

The Raptors were perhaps a little jittery at the start, with Kyle Lowry firing a pass well out of bounds on their first possession. Keep in mind: Draymond Green's idea of a scuffle is when he straight-up kicks an opposing player in the nuts.

"We didn't play very well tonight at all and we still had a chance the entire game", Draymond Green said.

"We've been holding out hope, but I might as well say it now".

All four of the Warriors' previous finals were against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, and they struggled to figure out a new opponent. At one point during the game, Warriors player Andre Iguodala went sprinting after a loose ball, diving into the stands and coming within about five inches of absolutely decapitating Drake. Kyle Lowry only shot 2-for-9 from the floor, but was everywhere on the court, including drawing his signature defensive charges in the fourth quarter. Instead, it was a Dell Curry Raptors jersey. They then swept the conference finals, but the Blazers certainly put up a good fight.

Drake wore a band on his left arm to cover tattoos he sports with the names and numbers of Curry and injured Golden State star forward Kevin Durant. However, Thursday found Drake invading the personal space of Stephen Curry, when he picked something out of the hair of the Golden State Warriors guard.

So far, the top price for Sunday's Game 2 is a mere $10,000. Cousins played eight minutes and contributed three points, two assists and two steals. He shook off any reasons to doubt Golden State after a singular basketball game, regardless of its magnitude.

Curry scored a game-high 34 points, but lack of support from his teammates, especially his bench (36 points), allowed the Raptors to pull away late. He was super committed to finding a place in this league and improving his game.
