Warriors’ Klay Thompson suffers torn ACL in loss to Toronto

Celebs React to Toronto Raptors Winning NBA Finals 2019 – See the Tweets!

Kawhi Leonard, No. 2 of the Toronto Raptors, celebrates his teams win victory over the Golden State Warriors in Game Six to win the 2019 NBA Finals at ORACLE Arena on June 13, 2019 in Oakland, California.

The Toronto Raptors are officially the winners of the 2019 NBA Finals!

Thompson's injury came on the heels of a nightmare Game 5 for the Warriors, who won the game but lost Kevin Durant for the remainder of the series and beyond with a torn Achilles tendon.

Fred VanVleet scored 22 points off the bench and made big shot after big shot down the stretch to lead the Raptors to an unforgettable win on the road.

"When Klay goes down and is out for the game, it's just sort of a, you got to be kidding me, like this has to stop", said Warriors coach Steve Kerr.

Golden State has good reason to believe, given the shooting guard's age and health history, that he will return to all-star level play.

"But it's just the way it's gone". In Toronto, rapper Drake - the team's global ambassador - partied with revellers outside the Scotiabank Arena.

Both Durant and Thompson will be free agents in the offseason.

The Raptors had surrendered a lead after controlling the early parts of the game, Kawhi Leonard hadn't fully established himself, and the Raptors just kept having opportunities to take control, and not quite getting there and the frustration started to build.

When healthy the Warriors are a near-unstoppable group, one that has been a fixture in the NBA Finals for the last five years but injuries ultimately proved their undoing.

"We'll be thinking about this one, it's tough".
