Drake celebrates epic Raptors win with Mr Killa's Run Wid It

Durant is unlikely to play in the opening game of the National Basketball Association finals next Thursday against the victor of a semi-final series between the Toronto Raptors and Milwaukee Bucks.

The current average is $4,214 CAD for games at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto - the highest ever. Fans are waiting in line hours before tip-off for a chance to watch the game outside, knowing that they're likely going to get rained on throughout the game's entirety.

The big question for the Raptors, like the playoff opponents the Warriors have faced before, will be how they defend the pick-and-roll with Curry.

After being at odds with the Spurs organization and playing just nine games due to injury, the two sides finally made a decision to part ways in the summer of 2018 when San Antonio shipped the 2014 Finals MVP to the Raptors.

Stephen Curry #30, Kevin Durant #35 and DeMarcus Cousins #0 of the Golden State Warriors laugh on the bench during a 130-111 win over the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center on January 21, 2019 in Los Angeles, California.

Hasselbaink hopes Sarri took important lessons from that game as he prepares to go in search of major silverware. I don't think that if the defence is not doing our job you would make 70 points.

"We can really have an opportunity to strengthen basketball in Vancouver, which I think there's been a great history - I think it's something we can continue", said Wiebe. "I understand that", said Durant, who joined the Warriors in 2016.

"As easy as it looks and seems", Toronto Raptors guard Danny Green said Tuesday afternoon, "it's a lot tougher when you actually get out there". But it was nice that we kept our mouths shut and just let everything play out.

The Bucks have been the most dominant team of the NBA Playoffs so far, sweeping the Detroit Pistons in the first round and cruising against a talented Boston Celtics team in five games in what was a very lopsided conference semifinal.

"Everybody talks about it's hard to find that edge and get up for, [you] find some sort of monotony-I don't know if you find that in the finals-that's part of human nature that you fight", Curry said. Why would Kawhi just stop playing all of a sudden?

If not, then they would return home down two-games-to-none and would have to hope to get Durant back to turn the tides.
