The Toronto Raptors have clinched the first NBA Finals appearance in franchise history as they overcame a 15-point deficit to defeat the Milwaukee Bucks by a final score of 100-94. The Raptors are the 21st team in NBA history to win a best-of-seven series after trailing 2-0 and the first team to do so since the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Boston Celtics in the 2018 Eastern Conference Finals. Kawhi Leonard led all scorers with 27 points (9-22 FG), along with a career-high 17 rebounds and 7 assists for the Raptors in the victory. Leonard is the first player with that many points, rebounds, and assists in a playoff series-clinching win since Michael Jordan (38 points, 19 rebounds, 7 assists) in the 1991 Eastern Conference Semifinals against the 76ers. The Raptors will face the Golden State Warriors in the 2019 NBA Finals presented by YouTubeTV, with Game 1 set to take place in Toronto on Thursday, May 30th at 9:00pm ET on ABC.
