The Raptors won Game 1 on Thursday night, becoming the first team to win the first game of the Finals against Golden State in five years. In zzzzzzzzzeach of the last four years, the Warriors held home advantage and began by winning the series opener.

Join us Sunday at 5 p.m. for live scoring, news and in-game analysis as the Warriors hope to even up the NBA Finals at 1-1 when they face the Raptors at Scotiabank Arena in Game 2.
The Warriors come into Game 2 hoping to get a lot better on defense after watching the Raptors (and Pascal Siakam, in particular) take advantage of some lackluster Golden State transition defense while notching a 118-109 Game 1 victory. Sure, the Warriors slowed down Toronto stars Kawhi Leonard (23 points on 5-of-14 shooting) and Kyle Lowry (seven points on 2-of-9 shooting), but Siakam erupted for a whopping 32 points on 14-of-17 shooting. Siakam’s primary defender? Draymond Green, who vowed to be much better on defense Sunday after playing pretty well on offense again — notching a triple-double with 10 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds.
