NBA Finals: Raptors on brink of history after claiming 3rd win in 4 games against Warriors

Toronto Raptors are only a game away from claiming the NBA title after they defeated Golden State Warriors in game 4 of the series.

Raptors, who lead 3-1, are on the brink of making history as it would be their first title in the franchise’s 24-season if they succeed in game 5.

Raptors defeated defending champions the Golden State Warriors 105-92 after a sensational second half that saw Kawhi Leonard reach 36 points.

The Warriors are looking to claim their third consecutive title and fourth in the past five seasons.

But trailing 1-3 on matchday four, it is yet to be seen how Warriors could turn things around.

The only team to overcome the same deficit in the Finals were the Cleveland Cavaliers, who beat the Warriors in 2016.

Game five of the best-of-seven series is in Toronto on Monday.
