Fans revelling in glory of Raptors' win, rush to secure team gear

Will Leonard stay in Toronto after leading the Raptors to their first National Basketball Association title?

The Golden State Warriors superstar congratulated the rapper Thursday night via telephone, following the Toronto Raptors' NBA Finals-clinching win over the Warriors.

Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson suffered a torn ACL Thursday night during the Warriors game six loss to the Toronto Raptors in the NBA Finals.

Fans back in Toronto were pictured partying and cheering in the streets after the emotional win. He was the game's leading scorer with 30 points before the injury.

The biggest question surrounds the fate of forward Kevin Durant, who helped lead the team to two championships.

Thompson, who was fouled on the play, was in obvious pain and headed toward the locker room but suddenly reappeared to shoot his free throws, which if he did not shoot would have made him ineligible to come back later in the game.

Fred VanVleet rescued the Raptors down the stretch with his dazzling shooting from deep to score 22 points with five 3s off the bench, while Leonard wound up with 22 points.

US submits extradition request for Assange
Assange had been transferred to the prison hospital and it's unclear whether he will be able to attend Friday's hearing. The "first real confrontation of arguments" in court will not be for several weeks or months, Mr Hrafnsson said.

The Raptors had already won all three previous games - each by double digits - at Oracle this season, including two wins last week in a storied building that Raptors fans have practically turned into their own Jurassic Park - O-Town version.

The Warriors confirmed the 29-year-old underwent an MRI scan after the game to confirm the extent of the injury, but did not offer a timeline for his recovery.

Las Vegas Superbook has James' Los Angeles Lakers - who remain in hot pursuit of Anthony Davis - followed by the Milwaukee Bucks and L.A. Clippers, considered a prime contender to sign Kawhi Leonard.

Then, there were his predictions in Game 6 of the Rockets-Warriors series.

'Thank you to everybody, you see the hat, we did it, ' he said, referring to the NBA Championship hat he was wearing, before throwing some shade at Klay Thompson.

It wasn't flawless, state-of-the-art, or pretty to look at from the outside or inside, but for the generations of Warriors fans and the team's alumni, it was home - full of memories, moments, and especially since 2014, excitement.
