Warriors equalized the total score at the NBA finals
The defending champion who won Toronto Raptors 109-104 in the second game of the US professional basketball tournament, through which a 1-1 draw at the series of seven wins four.
Still missing the star Kevin Durant and struggling with the injury of many other players, but the Golden State Warriors still leaves the Raptors Scotiabank Arena with their first away win.
The defending champion did not really work in game 2. After the first half in the balance, the visitors to the Raptors accelerated in the second half. Fred VanVleet played impressively on both ends of the pitch, not only stopping Stephen Curry with three robberies, but also contributing 17 points on the attacking front. At the end of the second half, the home team sometimes led to 11 points.
The game reversed at the beginning of the third half when Warriors scored 18 points in a row to rise to 72-59. Klay Thompson featured 25 points, Stephen Curry scored 23 points, and Draymond Green almost scored the fourth consecutive triple-double with 17 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists. Substitutes like Quinn Cook, Andrew Bogut or Jonas Jerebko also left a mark on the few minutes that were on the pitch.
Difficult to Warriors when Klay Thompson must miss the last eight minutes of the game because of injury, while the midfielder Kevon Looney also left the field earlier for the same reason. But the visitors still stand firm thanks to their effective defensive ability.
Raptors Kawhi Leonard scored 34 points, but could not find a lot of space to attack the basket, had to regularly go out. The satellites around Leonard also ended ineffectively in the last two rounds.
Raptors persistently pursued and shortened the gap to two points when entering the last 30 seconds. But 35-year-old Andre Iguodala spoke at the right time with a three-point pitch that decided when the match was less than 10 seconds long. Eventually, Golden State Warriors won 109-104 in game 2.
Game 3 of the NBA final series will take place at 8:00 on June 6, at the Oracle Arena of Warriors
