Kind of like the Houston Rockets, who won their two NBA titles during a time when Michael Jordan was off playing baseball. That’ll be at least part of the legacy of a Raptors 2019 title that seems increasingly likely after Friday night’s dominating 105-92 Game 4 victory put the Raptors one win away from the franchise’s first championship. Or it’ll certainly be some of the inane words that come out of the mouths of talking heads in the days afterward. But even if the Raptors end up dispatching a clearly less-than Warriors squad, whether it be in embarrassing fashion in a five-game series or in a hard-fought, down-to-the-wire seven-gamer, please, do all sports fans a favor and don’t put an asterisk next to their title. This is not to anoint the Raptors as the 2019 champs, obviously. There’s a long way to go before they get to hoist the trophy. Forty-eight minutes of NBA Finals-winning basketball is a really long time and a really impressive achievement. Kevin Durant can come back in Game 5, go supernova for three games, and lead the Warriors to their third straight title. That would be the best storyline that could possibly come out of these NBA Finals. It’s unlikely, sure, but ask the Warriors themselves about what it’s like taking a 3-1 lead for granted.
Golden State Warriors star forward Kevin Durant will not play in Game 4 of the NBA Finals on Friday night as he continues to recover from a right calf injury, but swingman Klay Thompson is expected to return after missing Game 3 because of a hamstring injury.
Kerr and the Warriors were optimistic that Durant was making enough progress in his recovery to participate in some 3-on-3 scrimmages on Thursday, but that did not happen.
If Durant does come back in this series, forward Draymond Green reiterated that he doesn’t think it will take much time for Durant to find a rhythm with the rest of his teammates – even with so much time off.
Now let’s what irononsticker.net design for Milwaukee Bucks logos in weird way:
The Milwaukee Bucks and Toronto Raptors have been the two best teams in the East all season. The Bucks, of course, have been a step ahead. They had both the league’s best record and its best point differential in the regular season. And through two rounds, they have both the postseason’s best record and its best point differential.
The Raptors have seemingly played the tougher competition on their way to the conference finals. Or maybe the Bucks have been too good to have seem threatened. The next two weeks will whether it’s better to have been tested or to have been dominant.
Now let’s what we design for Milwaukee Bucks logos:
The Toronto Raptors made history on Saturday night with their 100-94 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals. With the win, the Raptors closed out the series, 4-2, and are on to the NBA Finals for the first time in franchise history.
Kawhi Leonard continued his postseason brilliance, finishing with 27 points, 17 rebounds and seven assists to go along with his elite defense on Giannis Antetokounmpo. Fred VanVleet, meanwhile, continued to step up off the bench since the birth of his son and chipped in 14 points thanks to four more 3-pointers.

It is still unbelievable when you say Raptors end up with 2019 NBA finals with Warriors and got the capability to beat all NBA teams.
The Toronto Raptors pulled away for a 118-109 triumph in Game 1 of these finals against the mighty Golden State Warriors at a raucous Scotiabank Arena, despite Kawhi Leonard shooting just 5 of 14 from the field for 23 points.
Green was good, posting 10 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists for a triple-double. But Siakam was spectacular, draining 11 consecutive shots in one stretch en route to 32 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists for the Raptors, who also hounded Golden State into 42.9 percent shooting from the field.
