The Raptors, who won the series in six games, were led by star Kawhi Leonard, who scored 22 points and took home the NBA Finals MVP trophy.

This led to Seph Curry having to try and take the offensive load. He struggled, scoring only four points in the quarter. Next season the Warriors are moving their arena from Oakland to San Francisco, so this was the final game in Oracle Arena.
