    NBA Finals Game 5 Preview
    Golden State Warriors at Toronto Raptors


    The Kevin Durant watch is on. The Golden State Warriors have their backs against the wall, trailing 3-1 to the Toronto Raptors in the NBA Finals. They are hoping to get back their superstar power forward for Game 5 but his availability is still up in the air.

    The Raptors are at home and are slight favorites in this matchup and would love to end any drama and clinch the championship in this one. If the Warriors can get the series back to their home court for Game 6 they will feel good, and the intensity in this game should be extremely high.

    Toronto has been the superior team in this series but the two-time defending champion Warriors certainly won’t be going down without a battle. This should be an exciting and nip-and-tuck matchup in NBA wagering.

    Game 5 of the NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and Toronto Raptors will be held at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Ontario, Canada at 9 p.m. ET on Monday, June 10th, 2019. The game will be nationally televised on ABC.

    We'll have NBA basketball odds at BookMaker.eu available for every game of the 2019 NBA season.

    Odds Analysis

    The Raptors are listed as 2-point favorites to win this game, and if they cover it will mean a championship for Toronto. The Warriors are the +110 underdog while the Raptors are the -130 favorite, but the spread has dropped in recent days. The scoring total is listed at 214 points, which has increased since the original odds were released.

    The Raptors were underdogs in the two games in Oakland but won both outright, and the Warriors would like to return the favor in this one.

    Last Time Out

    The Warriors were aiming to tie the series up at two games apiece in Game 4 and had the lead at halftime, but the Raptors dominated after intermission and cruised to the 105-92 win. Kawhi Leonard was fantastic, finishing with 36 points, 12 rebounds and four steals. Serge Ibaka played a pivotal role off the bench with 20 points in 22 minutes of play.

    Klay Thompson returned to the court after missing Game 3 with a hamstring strain and didn’t show any ill effects, finishing with a team-best 28 points on 11-of-18 shooting from the floor, including 6-of-10 from three-point range. Steph Curry had 27 points but the Warriors didn’t have enough scoring help from the others on the team, which has been an issue in this series.

    Injury Report


    Durant practiced for at least a portion of the time on Sunday and has been listed as questionable for Game 5. He has been out since suffering a serious calf strain against the Rockets in the second round. If Durant can play, it is unknown of he will be under any minutes restrictions.

    Durant is one of the most talented players in the NBA, and his availability will have an outsized effect on the spread, tilting it one way or the other whether he can play or not. All eyes will be on Durant’s status in the lead-up to this matchup.

    Free NBA ATS Picks

    The Raptors are at home but the Warriors have great resolve and are going to be able to pull off this slight upset. Durant will likely play in this one and he will be a huge boost for the team if that happens in NBA gambling.

    The “under” is the pick as the points are going to be in demand in Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

    NBA ATS Pick: Golden State Warriors 107, Toronto Raptors 104

    Raptors miss opportunity in Game 5 of NBA Finals
    June 11, 2019
    By The Associated Press

    TORONTO (AP) They were up by six, in the city that Torontonians call The Six, with less than three minutes left.

    The NBA championship was there for the taking.

    And the Toronto Raptors couldn't finish it off.

    The Raptors still lead the NBA Finals 3-2, even after losing at home to the Golden State Warriors 106-105 on Monday night. But they'll be heading back to California on Tuesday, and allowed the Warriors - the wounded two-time defending NBA champions - to have renewed life in their quest for a third straight ring.

    Kawhi Leonard's jumper with 3:28 left put the Raptors up 103-97. They were outscored 9-2 the rest of the way. They missed five of their last six shots - the only make was on a goaltending call - and went 0 for 3 from 3-point range in that crucial closing stretch. Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry scored all nine of Golden State's points in that finishing kick.

    The Larry O'Brien Trophy went back into its carrying case.

    Off to Oracle it goes for Game 6 on Thursday night, the final home game the Warriors will ever play in that building.

    The Raptors are still in control of the series. The worst thing that can happen to them in the next few days is to have a Game 7 in their Scotiabank Arena on Sunday night to decide the championship.

    They've won three times at Oracle already this season. But they also knew this was a chance that slipped away.

    And against a team with such a championship pedigree, even if Kevin Durant can't come back to this series, any missed opportunity could be very costly.

    Quotes of the Day
    “Playing for the Warriors is just like playing for Team USA. When you play in the Olympics, you don’t even enjoy it. There’s the anxiety of ‘We have to win. We can’t lose, or we can’t go back home.’ We talk about it on the Olympic team: ‘We can’t go back home without the gold medal, fellas. Got to lock in. Let’s lock in.’ Then once you win, it’s like, ‘Yeah, we got it, we can go back home. Yay, we won, but we were supposed to.’”
    Andre Iguodala

    Tuesday’s quiz
    Dodger P Clayton Kershaw played center on his high school football team; which NFL QB was the QB on that high school team?

    Sunday’s quiz
    Barbara Streisand co-starred with Kris Kristofferson in the 1976 version of A Star Is Born.

    ****************************

    Tuesday’s List of 13: Nobody asked me, but……

    13) Warriors 106, Raptors 105— Toronto had a 6-point lead and the ball with 3:00 left, but couldn’t finish the job; Game 6 is in Oakland Thursday. Warriors were +6 in 12:00 with Kevin Durant on the floor; seriously doubt he plays again in this series.

    12) Dallas Keuchel made his ’19 debut Monday, pitching for Rome in the Class A South Atlantic League; he allowed a single, a walk with nine strikeouts in seven scoreless innings.

    11) Braves 13, Pirates 7— Josh Donaldson got drilled by a pitch in the first inning, the ump threw the pitcher out, and a high-scoring game broke out. Marte and Albies both homered twice in this game.

    10) Former Auburn, Akron coach Terry Bowden is heading to the Clemson football staff as a 63-year-old graduate assistant; his brother Tommy was Clemson’s head coach for 10 years.

    Bowden is going for a Master’s Degree in athletic leadership at Clemson, and his position on the staff is an unpaid graduate internship.

    9) Auburn 14, North Carolina 7— Tigers advance to the College World Series; they scored 13 runs in the top of the first inning. Rough way for the season to end for UNC.

    8) Wednesday’s Rangers-Red Sox game in Boston moves up from 7:00 to 4:00 because Game 7 of the Stanley Cup final is Wednesday night in Boston.

    7) Baseball stuff:
    — Pirates put P Jordan Lyles (hamstring) on IL.
    — Cardinals put P Adam Wainwright (hamsring) on IL
    — Angels’ P Matt Harvey aggravated his back injury on a rehab start.

    6) Rained in New York City Monday night, so Subway Series will have a day/night twinbill on Tuesday, with games at 1:05, 7:05.

    5) Tony Parker retired after 18 seasons in the NBA; he won four NBA titles with the Spurs.

    4) Read online yesterday that El Cortez and Four Queens are last places in Las Vegas that deal low-limit single deck blackjack that still pays 3-2 on naturals. Most single deck games pay 6-5 now.

    3) College basketball transfer portal:
    — Grad transfer Isaiah Moss bolts from Iowa to Kansas.
    — Grad transfer Tevin Mack bolts from Alabama to Clemson.
    — F Eugene Omoruyi bolts from Rutgers to Oregon.

    2) Arizona 13, Phillies 8— This was seventh time since 1914 that a team led off a game with three straight home runs; last time was in 2017, also the Diamondbacks.

    Phillies’ Jerad Eickhoff didn’t allow a HR in any of his first five starts (30 IP); he’s allowed at least one homer in six straight starts (13 HR in last 24 1/3 IP).

    1) Field for the College World Series is set:
    Bracket One: Arkansas, Florida State, Michigan, Texas Tech.
    Bracket Two: Auburn, Louisville, Mississippi State, Vanderbilt

    Analysis: Golden State won, but both teams lost Game 5
    June 11, 2019
    By The Associated Press


    TORONTO (AP) The scoreboard said Golden State 106, Toronto 105.

    The reality was that both teams lost.

    It's almost unimaginable: an NBA Finals game where neither team felt like celebrating afterward. That was the bizarre reality on Monday night, after the Warriors staved off elimination by rallying in the final moments to beat the Raptors and send this series back to Oracle Arena for Game 6 - on a night when Kevin Durant's season came to an end.

    Durant has an Achilles injury. The Warriors know it's bad. They'll find out how bad on Tuesday.

    ''It's devastating,'' Toronto forward Kawhi Leonard said.

    He wasn't talking about losing the game.

    He was talking about seeing Durant get hurt.

    Leonard knows what it's like to have the game taken away by injury. He missed most of last season with a leg injury, one that limited him to nine games. He saw his commitment to the game questioned - the same way Durant had by some in recent days - and came out the other side an even better player.

    That was the hope after Game 5 of the NBA Finals. The series truly seemed insignificant, with both sides aching over Durant's situation.

    ''I love KD,'' Raptors coach Nick Nurse said. ''I love watching him play. When anybody goes down you're saddened by it, but when one of the great players like that goes down, it's almost shocking.''

    Durant had missed the previous nine games with what the Warriors insist was a strained calf muscle. This is not a calf injury anymore. Warriors general manager Bob Myers gave a postgame news conference where he delivered the emotional news that Durant hurt his Achilles.

    ''Kevin takes a lot of hits sometimes, but he just wants to play basketball and right now he can't,'' Myers said. ''Basketball has gotten him through his life. I don't know that we can all understand how much it means to him. He just wants to play basketball with his teammates and compete.''

    This should have gone so differently for the Warriors, the team that might be going for a fifth consecutive championship had it not wasted a 3-1 lead in the 2016 finals against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

    They're the ones who were down 3-1 in this title series. All they did on Monday night was rally from six points down in the final 3 minutes, get a fantastic defensive stand on the last play of the game to deny Toronto a win and a championship, and send the series back home for one final game at Oracle before moving to San Francisco next season.

    They have a chance at the ultimate comeuppance, a 3-1 finals rally of their own.

    Maybe when practice resumes Wednesday, that will bring some joy.

    There was no joy on Monday night. The Raptors weren't celebrating. Neither were the winners, who lost much more than Toronto did.

    ''Those talking heads who say we're better without him, that's just ludicrous,'' Warriors guard Klay Thompson said. ''Like, that's crazy. This is the best player in the world. You could put him on the 30th best team in the league, and that team will make the playoffs. That's how talented he is.''

    The Warriors won the last two NBA championships largely because of Durant.

    If they win the next two games for another championship, it'll be for Durant.

    ''It's a team full of heart,'' said Warriors center DeMarcus Cousins, who spent a year recovering from an Achilles injury that denied him a monster contract last summer and saw him sign with Golden State on a mid-level deal. ''It's as simple as that. We're fighters. It's in our DNA. We're going to go down fighting. Period.''

    Durant would want it no other way.

    ''I'm just going to pray for the guy,'' Thompson said.

    Leonard said he will be praying for Durant also.

    ''In this league we're all brothers,'' Raptors guard Kyle Lowry said. ''At the end of the day, we're all brothers and it's a small brotherhood and you never want to see a competitor like him go down.''

    The atmosphere will be raucous for Game 6 on Thursday night. The Raptors are getting a second swing at winning a title. The Warriors are looking to make sure they end their Oracle era with a victory.

    The joy that should have come out from one locker room on Monday night will, for certain, be exhibited by someone on Thursday night.

    ''We're going to give everything we got,'' Warriors guard Stephen Curry said. ''I would like to say I would guarantee the win - who knows how it's going to end up - but we're going to give everything we got. We're going to fight, we're going to compete, and I know if we get a chance to talk to him the next two days, that's what he would expect.''

    **********************

    Wednesday’s List of 13: Mid-week musings…….

    13) Surprised to hear that the Oakland Raiders will be featured this summer on Hard Knocks; figured that they would wait until next year to feature the Raiders, when they move to Las Vegas.

    12) Mets had two men on, no one out Tuesday with Jeff McNeil up; Bronx plays the 3B in for a bunt, and Mets’ TV guy Gary Cohen exclaims, “They’re playing in for a bunt!!! Doesn’t anyone scout?!?!?!”

    Words aren’t out of his mouth and McNeil homers to right-center. I’m guessing Bronx coaches and staff won’t be too thrilled when they hear about Cohen’s comments- they are in first place after all, while the Mets are………the Mets.

    11) There were 13 homers in the Arizona-Philly game Monday night, which is a major league record for one game.

    10) Interesting to follow Twitter late Monday night and Tuesday with reaction to Kevin Durant’s injury; lot of people suddenly became medical experts.

    Without knowing the inner workings of the Warriors, am guessing the decision comes down to Durant and the Warriors’ trainer, with Durant having the final say.

    What follows now really could alter the NBA’s entire offseason; what teams will throw major $$$ at a big star with a very serious leg injury? Will he get a shorter deal and have to prove himself healthy before he breaks the bank again?

    9) With Game 6 in Oakland Thursday, it bears repeating that Toronto had a 6-point lead and the ball with 3:00 left Monday with a chance to win its first title, but lost at home.

    Crowd will be fired up for Game 6, the last NBA game ever in Oakland— the Warriors have a new arena for next year, across the bay in San Francisco.

    8) Royals-Tigers are playing a game in Omaha, Nebraska Thursday, in advance of the College World Series. Teams played Tuesday-Wednesday in Kansas City.

    7) Baseball stuff:
    — Giancarlo Stanton homered (was 2-4) in a Class A rehab game.
    — Orioles’ P Alex Cobb (hip) is out for the year.
    — Tigers’ SS Niko Goodrum left Tuesday’s game (bruised knee).

    6) Memphis Grizzlies hired Taylor Jenkins as their new head coach; he was Mike Budenholzer’s assistant in Milwaukee this season and in Atlanta for five years. Jenkins will the Grizzlies’ 4th coach in the last five years.

    5) Saints signed DE Cam Jordan to a 3-year contract extension that is worth $52.5M with a maximum of $55.5M that includes $42M in guarantees.

    4) FOX Sports produced its US Open promo, but didn’t include the person who won the last two US Opens, which was surprising to Brooks Koepka, who won the last two US Opens.

    “We’re amazed that I wasn’t in it, just kind of shocked. Somebody probably got fired over it … or should.”

    3) Most home runs, first 67 games of a career in Major League history:
    1. Jose Abreu, 25 (2014), 2. Cody Bellinger, 24 (2017) 5. Pete Alonso, 22 (2019)

    2) Detroit Tigers have Jack Morris as a TV analyst this year and he is very good, especially when he talks about pitching. Very honest; I learn something every game.

    1) Zack Greinke has thrown 89 pitches this season that were under 70 MPH, 25 more than any other pitcher in the major leagues.

    Analysis: Even being injured Durant leads free-agent pack
    June 12, 2019
    By The Associated Press


    OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) This was already going to be a summer filled with fireworks in the NBA.

    Nothing has changed.

    Kevin Durant's Achilles injury, the severity of which isn't yet confirmed, means he probably won't be able to play much - if any - next season. But this is a testament to how much he overshadows much of the NBA landscape: Durant will still likely dictate how the free-agency dominoes fall this summer.

    Durant could exercise his $31.5 million player option and stay with the Warriors, and that's likely going to be his worst-case financial scenario. He could opt out and sign a longer deal to stay in the Bay. Or he could opt out, sign elsewhere and start collecting massive checks from either the New York Knicks or Brooklyn Nets or Los Angeles Clippers or someone else.

    Kyrie Irving's decision could hinge on what Durant does. Kawhi Leonard's decision could be affected by what Durant does. How the Knicks, Nets, Clippers, Dallas Mavericks, Los Angeles Lakers, Atlanta Hawks and all the other teams who have cap space will start spending their money on June 30 ... it all will be determined, at least on some level, by what Durant does.

    If he stays in Golden State, that's more money for everyone else.

    If he hits the open market, it'll be about what team wants to gamble.

    Here's a tip to those teams that wanted Durant before he got hurt again in Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

    If the opportunity presents itself, sign him.

    Free agency usually isn't about just one year. It's about the long haul. Durant is only 30 years old. He's not a high-flyer who plays above the rim all the time. He's not a plodding big man. He's not someone with a lot of gray in the goatee. He's a world-class scorer and jump-shooter in his prime. A year from now, if the recovery from the Achilles injury indeed takes that long, he'll be far from over the hill.

    ''This is a devastating injury for a basketball player, but Durant can return to be the same or very close,'' Dr. David Chao, a longtime NFL team physician, practicing orthopedic surgeon and now a sports medical analyst with a large following wrote Tuesday. ''This does not mark his downfall as an elite player.''

    In the short term, it just means Durant's NBA Finals are over. Game 6 is Thursday night, and the Warriors trail the Toronto Raptors 3-2 in the title series.

    In the long term, it might mean so much more - including the possibility that his time playing for Golden State is over.

    Achilles recoveries for basketball players have typically taken about a full year. Even if it turns out to be a partial tear, it's still a tear. Some team was going to pay Durant a lot of money in 2019-20 and some team still will, probably without the immediate on-court services of perhaps the best player in the world in return.

    The first decision is the medical course of action.

    The financial course of action will be decided soon after.

    All will not be lost next season for the team that has Durant on its roster. That team will apply for, and get, a disabled player exception that will allow them to sign someone else for probably about $9 million and not have that count toward the team's cap.

    That player won't be of Durant's caliber, because so few players are. But a year or so later, the team would have Durant.

    There's risk with any signing. And signing any player that will command so much of a team's salary cap while facing a grueling rehab would seem particularly risky.

    ''He's going to come back stronger though,'' Warriors guard Klay Thompson said. ''That's the kind of fighter he is.''

    The Nets swung a trade earlier this month to clear enough cap space for two max contracts this summer - and there's no doubt that they would love Durant to take one of those spots, possibly alongside Irving. The Knicks have been mentioned as a hopeful in the Durant sweepstakes for months. The Clippers were expected to make a pitch for him as well. The Warriors surely want to keep him.

    The chatter about Durant's injury indicates it's all a mystery now, although it really shouldn't be.

    Players have made comebacks off Achilles surgery, with relative levels of success.

    DeMarcus Cousins, Kobe Bryant, and Rudy Gay all came back; Cousins hasn't regained past form yet. Dominique Wilkins had an Achilles tear happen to him at the peak of his career and he arguably was good as ever afterward. Elton Brand, now leading the Philadelphia 76ers' front office, had it as a player and said he was never the same. Christian Laettner went from a star to a role player when his Achilles ripped.

    ''I've been there,'' 15-time golf major winner Tiger Woods said Tuesday at the U.S. Open. ''I've had it to my own Achilles. I've had it to my own back. I know what it feels like. It's an awful feeling. And no one can help you. That's the hard part.''

    Woods fought his way back toward the top of his sport, and is the reigning Masters champion.

    Durant isn't going to let an Achilles injury end his reign as one of the game's best. Teams would be foolish to think otherwise.

    Armadillo: Thursday's List of 13: Doing some thinking out loud……

    13) Why does there always have to be someone to blame? People today always need someone to blame when something bad happens.

    Kevin Durant got hurt Monday night; all I see on Twitter is “Whose fault is it?”

    The Warriors trainer? Their GM? Durant? His agent? Russell Westbrook?

    Sometimes stuff just happens, then people have to react/adjust to it. This was no one’s fault.

    12) Durant already had his injured achilles tendon operated on; that was quick.

    11) Of the top 100 top-rated TV programs of 2018, 64 were NFL games.

    10) Tuesday night was the first time the Pittsburgh Pirates allowed four home runs in an inning since 1956, when the New York Giants did it, with a young Willie Mays hitting one of them.

    9) This week at Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas, a gambler bet $44,000 that Phil Mickelson won’t finish in the top 5 at the US Open at Pebble Beach; if he wins his bet, he banks $4,000.

    8) Reds opened the first inning Wednesday with back/back homers (Senzel/Votto), first time they did that since 2001, when Alex Ochoa/Barry Larkin did it.

    7) Baseball stuff:
    — Padres sent P Chris Paddack to Class A ball, just to rein in his innings.
    — Arizona put P Jon Duplantier (shoulder) on IL.
    — Marlins put P Jose Urena (back) on IL.

    6) Something you don’t see much anymore; a defensive tackle on the Baltimore Ravens was so out of shape at minicamp that the team set him home, basically after stretching exercises. With so much money at stake nowadays, players get tend to stay in shape year-round.

    5) Tennessee Titans will retire Steve McNair’s #9 and Eddie George’s #27 this fall; McNair’s #9 will be the first #9 ever retired by an NFL team.

    4) Back in January, the St Louis Blues were having a bad season and fired their coach; a gambler in Las Vegas wagered $400 on them to win the Stanley Cup, at 250-1 odds. Probably seemed like throwing money away to most, but today the guy cashes a ticket worth $100,000.

    3) Braves 8, Braves 7 (11)— Game ended around 12:30 am; teams have a 12:10 first pitch today, so lot of people better sleep fast.

    2) Brewers 6, Astros (14)— Mike Moustakas hit the deciding home run in the 14th inning. Milwaukee batters walked once, struck out 24 times in this game, and still won.

    1) Wednesday night, a person paid $69,287.21 each on the Warriors’ website for two courtside seats (total: $138,574.42) for Game 6 of the NBA Finals.

    Someone should tell this person that the games are on TV.

    NBA Finals Game 6 Preview

    Toronto Raptors at Golden State Warriors


    It has been a roller coaster of emotions for the Golden State Warriors the past couple of days. They extended the NBA Finals with a one-point win in Game 5 but learned after the contest that Kevin Durant likely tore his Achilles. Golden State will head home for Game 6 without the superstar forward but needs to re-focus and play well in order to knock off the Toronto Raptors and force a do-or-die Game 7 back in Toronto.

    This has been a fascinating series and Game 6 promises to be more of the same. The Warriors are the slight favorites but the Raptors won both games in Oakland earlier in the NBA Finals so they will be feeling confident that they can pull off another upset and clinch the championship in NBA gambling.

    Game 6 of the NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and Toronto Raptors will be held at Oracle Arena in Oakland, California at 9 p.m. ET on Thursday, June 13th, 2019. The game will be nationally televised on ABC.

    We'll have NBA basketball odds at BookMaker.eu available for every game of the 2019 NBA season.

    Odds Analysis

    The Warriors are listed as the slight three-point favorites to win this game and extend the series to a winner-takes-all Game 7. Golden State is -148 on the moneyline while the Raptors are the +123 underdogs. The scoring total is listed at 211 points, with the “over” currently getting more of the action in NBA gambling.

    The road team has won the past four games of this series and Golden State needs to halt that trend to keep its hopes of a three-peat alive in NBA odds.

    Last Time Out

    The Raptors led by six points with only a couple of minutes left, but Klay Thompson and Steph Curry both connected on some huge three-pointers to lift their team to a 106-105 victory in Game 5. Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry had a shot to win the game at the buzzer but Draymond Green blocked it to secure the win.

    Curry had 31 points, eight rebounds and seven assists while Thompson added 26 points, including seven three-pointers. Center DeMarcus Cousins gave the Warriors a nice boost off the bench, making some big plays in both halves that were sorely needed.

    Kawhi Leonard started the game slowly but had an unreal run in the fourth quarter to pit his team to the lead. However, Leonard couldn’t get his shot off in the final couple of minutes and his teammates went cold from the floor.

    Injury Report

    Durant had 11 points in 12 minutes and seemed poised for a huge performance in Game 5 but he injured his Achilles early in the second quarter and left the game. Durant is obviously done for the rest of the NBA Finals and now there is concern that the injury will affect a big chunk of the 2019-20 season.

    The Warriors are hoping to have center Kevon Looney, who re-injured his chest in Game 5 and sat out the final part of it. Looney isn’t the most skilled player but he helps with defense and rebounding and is a key piece. Keep an eye on his status for Game 6.

    Free NBA ATS Picks


    The Warriors have been through a lot and will need to regroup for this one. While this one should be close throughout, it is hard to imagine Golden State losing a third game at home in the NBA Finals. Look for Curry and Thompson to score at a high level once again. The Raptors will stick close but will falter down the stretch.

    The Warriors are the pick to win this game and cover the spread in NBA betting lines. The “over” is the better call on the scoring total.

    NBA ATS Pick: Golden State Warriors 109, Toronto Raptors 104

    Warriors' reign ends as injuries pile up
    June 14, 2019
    By The Associated Press


    OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) In the end, they were just battered and broken.

    And now, they're beaten.

    The Golden State Warriors are champions no more.

    The reign ended Thursday night in the last game they'll ever play at Oracle Arena, one where they entered without Kevin Durant and left without Klay Thompson. The roster depletion was just too taxing, even for warriors like the Warriors to bear, and they lost Game 6 of the NBA Finals 114-110 to the Toronto Raptors.

    Toronto won the series 4-2, finishing it off a few minutes after Thompson used crutches to hobble out of Oracle and into perhaps an uncertain future. He got hurt in the third quarter, fouled on a dunk attempt and landing awkwardly on his left knee - which buckled in a manner that's often a telltale sign of big trouble.

    He left the game, then limped out of the tunnel and returned to the court - drawing raucous cheers - so he could shoot his free throws, allowing him to possibly return after being evaluated. He made both shots, the Warriors then took a foul a few seconds later and Thompson retreated toward the locker room again. A few minutes later, the word came: Thompson was done for the night.

    The reign was done not long afterward.

    Golden State still had a chance, even in the final seconds. Stephen Curry missed a 3-pointer with about 6 seconds left that would have given the Warriors the lead. The actual ending came several minutes later after long delays following a technical on Golden State for calling a time-out it didn't have and then a long review of a foul on Toronto's inbounds pass with less than a second left.

    The Raptors didn't mind waiting.

    And for the Warriors, it just prolonged the inevitable.

    Thompson finished with 30 points, even missing the fourth quarter. Andre Iguodala scored 22 points, Curry had 21 and Draymond Green finished with 11 points, 19 rebounds and 13 assists.

    It wasn't enough.

    It was a sad farewell to Oracle for so many reasons. The 2,070th and final game in that building that the Warriors called home for 47 seasons. The first game since Durant had surgery to repair his ruptured Achilles. The last loss of the season. The end of the quest for three straight championships. And if all that emotion wasn't enough, now there's fear for Thompson's future.

    Thompson will be a free agent on June 30. The Warriors have said they want to keep him, and they likely still will. But if he has a major knee issue now that would be on top of the injury that will likely keep Durant - another probable free-agent-in-waiting, maybe the biggest domino that will fall this summer to start an expected player-movement bonanza - off the court for all of next season.

    The irony with Thompson's injury is he doesn't get hurt. Thompson one of the most durable players in the league. He strained a hamstring earlier in these finals and missed one game. He may have done a number on his knee on Thursday and was still lobbying to stay in the game.

    He was gone before the Raptors' celebration. When the Warriors start play next season at the new Chase Center in San Francisco, there will be no banner to raise, no rings to hand out. An era is over. A new one will have to begin.
