The Toronto Raptors have a commanding lead in the 2019 NBA Finals, and have the chance to wrap up the series and win the Championship, on a Monday Night in Toronto.
They have made the most of, and taken advantage of an injury-depleted Golden State Warriors side, and Kawhi Leonard has had help from his teammates.
Leonard was very good in Game 4 with 34 Points and Serge Ibaka did step up with 20 off the bench.
Can the Warriors get the win and force a Game 6 on Thursday Night?
A lot will depend on the Kevin Durant injury, but he may well and truly be done.
Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala will not give up without a fight though.
Here are some NBA Finals Picks for June 10th 2019.
Golden State Warriors 1 @ Toronto Raptors 3
Prediction – Game Total Under 214.5
Golden State + 2.5
The Raptors have been playing very well, but have struggled to back up wins this season, particularly when they are the Home Favourites. There will be a lot of pressure from the fans in Canada as they try and win their first ever NBA Title.
Golden State, on the other hand, does have a better record both after a loss and when they are the away underdogs. Expect them to fight right until the end in what will more than likely be a high-pressure defence, low scoring game.
Golden State games tend to be low scoring when they are the Underdogs and coming off a loss.
Andre Iguodala + 7.5 Points
Iguodala gave up a lot of shots in Game 4, but the Warriors will need him to hit shots in Game 5 if they are to stay alive.
We all know he can score and this number is still fairly low. Kevin Durant is once again unlikely to suit up so he will get plenty of chances in a must-win game.
Draymond Green + 8.5 Assists
Draymond will fight to the end and always gets more assists when Klay Thompson is on the floor. He will be forced to try and score himself on numerous occasions, but will more than likely give double-figure assists a nudge once again.
Kawhi Leonard + 3.5 Assists
Leonard likes to control the game and will get double teamed a lot as the Warriors will be trying to get it out of his hands. This will leave Lowry, Gasol, Green and Siakam open and he should cover this number.
Serge Ibaka + 5.5 Rebounds
Ibaka is unlikely to have as much of an impact as he did in Game 4, but will definitely get 20+ minutes after such a good offensive show.
These types of games are tight defensively and there will be a lot of missed shots, which leaves plenty of chances to rebound the basketball.
