Canada’s only team faces its first championship bid after the Raptors beat the Milwaukee Bucks, 100-94 in Saturday night’s Eastern Conference Finals Game 6 in Toronto. The 19-year-old team recovered from a third-quarter 15-point deficit, taking the lead even with star Kawhi Leonard on the bench. He returned to complete the job, finishing with 27 points and a career-high 17 rebounds.
What chance to they have? Don’t bet all your loonies on Toronto beating the overwhelmingly favored Golden State Warriors. It’ll be their fifth consecutive finals appearance when the series begins Thursday, so Leonard will simply “enjoy the moment and take the challenge.”
