Warriors vs. Raptors: NBA Finals open thread

Will Golden State three-peat?

Game 1 of the NBA Finals tips off tonight at 6 p.m. PT on ABC. The Toronto Raptors will host the Golden State Warriors. For the first time in what feels like two decades, the Eastern Conference will have a team that isn’t led by Lebron James. Kawhi Leonard has been remarkable these playoffs, willing the Raptors to several late-game victories. The Warriors will be without star Kevin Durant—at least early on—but Demarcus Cousins returns from injury, as he’s been activated for tonight’s game. How much he will play is another conversation.

The majority of fans believe the Warriors will win, but Toronto should at least make it interesting. I think the Raptors steal tonight’s game, but eventually lose in six to Golden State. Steph Curry wins his first NBA Finals MVP and Boogie gets a ring.

How do you think the series will go?
