The Raptors became the first Canadian team to win a major North American sports title since the 1993 Toronto Blue Jays captured Major League Baseball's World Series.

Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson (11) reacts after being fouled by Toronto Raptors guard Danny Green (14) during the second half in game six of the 2019 NBA Finals at Oracle Arena.

Several bystanders intervened and Ujiri got onto the court without displaying any credentials, Kelly said.


The deputy complained of pain in his jaw and was taken to a hospital for evaluation and later released. "We left and I didn't think anything else about it except 'oh wow, that was something else, '" said Greg Wiener, who has been a Warriors season ticket holder for more than 20 years.

The deputy told investigators he was trying to stop the Raptors president because he did not know who he was and he was not wearing identification.

Steve Kerr says the Warriors are obviously interested in bringing Kevin Durant back, but isn't sure what the star forward will do.


In the short term, the Warriors are just hopeful that Thompson and Durant can start their recovery process and both will decide to re-sign with the team. He then went down a tunnel to join the on-court celebration, ESPN reported.

Now, the three-time champion Warriors sit behind eight other teams with better odds (via William Hill) to capture the next championship.

In shocking fashion, the Toronto Raptors stormed their way through the postseason to become the first team outside of the United States to win an National Basketball Association championship.


Kelly said the sheriff's office is working with the Oakland Police Department to compile witness statements and videos. Stevens, wearing an NBA-issued credential, was seated about two spots away from where Lowry landed and shoved Lowry in the upper body.
