Toronto lost the Golden State in the first final, Siakam shined

“I would say we did a very good job at home. The fans were great, supporting us from warming up to the end of the match. I have never seen anything like this, ”said Siakam, a Cameroonian native.

Kawhi Leonard supported 23 points and eight rebounds and Marc Gasol 20 points and seven rebounds. Leonard enters the series with an injured knee. Substitute Fred VanVleet added 15 points.

Champions from the previous two years of the Warriors, who did not start fighting for the title for the first time in their fifth final and also lost for the first time, were not helped by Stephen Curry’s 34 points.

“Our goal was to win one match, and it is still true.So I know we will win and react like the champions we are, ”said Klay Thompson, author of 21 points. The home players lost five times during the match, but only by two points. Except for the third quarter, they dominated all the others and gained a twelve-point lead.

Siakam was particularly visible. Twenty-five-year-old Cameroon gained 32 rebounds and five assists. He turned 14 out of 17 field attempts on his way to a personal playoff record in the playoff.He’s becoming a scare, ”warrior Draymond Green, a sub-player of Warriors, complimented Siakam, who scored a fifth triple double in this year’s knockout rounds, this time for ten points, rebounds and assists. Unlike Siakam, however, the shooting rate was only 22 percent and he committed six losses.

“The atmosphere was really good. We didn’t play very well, but we kept the whole match, ”added Green.

After six weeks of no match, DeMarcus Cousins ​​returned to the Golden State lineup, who did not play for a long time due to muscle injury.He scored three points and two assists in eight minutes.

On the other hand, Kevin Durant’s comeback is still in vain, and his participation in the second match is also at risk.

This is being played on Sunday by Raptors, who have seen their final participation 24 years after joining the NBA in 1995.
