Warriors vs. Raptors: A look at NBA Finals

Warriors vs. Raptors: A look at NBA Finals

We're four wins away from one team to know the thing we've tried to figure out since the very first game of this National Basketball Association season.

DeMarcus Cousins, who has been out since tearing his quad during the first round, will also be traveling with the team, and is listed as questionable for Game 1. Let's see how they got here.

Game 1 will be on Thursday and Game 2 on Sunday. Other teams to reach this feat were the Minneapolis Lakers in the early 1950s, the Boston Celtics, who won eight straight in the late 50s and 60s, as well as the Chicago Bulls, who recorded two three-peats in the 90s with Michael Jordan.

In 14 playoff games so far (6 starts), Bogut has been limited to just 9.6 minutes per game, averaging 2.9 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.3 assists, with the Warriors series' against the Los Angeles Clippers, Houston Rockets and Portland Trail Blazers lending themselves to rolling out smaller lineups. "We're going to need him at a high level this series".

Gasol has proven particularly effective throughout the post-season, particularly on the defensive end in the post and around the rim, battling against Brook Lopez, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Joel Embiid and Nikola Vucevic in the lead up to the Finals. But before I make my predictions, there is one thing that could hold back the Warriors. When they host Game 3 of the NBA Finals, it'll have been 20 days since Golden State's last home game.

The Raptors may have made history by winning the East Conference on Saturday, but Raptors forward Pascal Siakam says those games are in the past.

Toronto's been worked this postseason - if guard O.G. Anunpby can return from an appendectomy it'd help - and the Warriors will be the fresher team. "My favorite player Steph Curry's gonna be ready to play".
