ANKARA (AA) - The Toronto Raptors defeated the Golden State Warriors 105-92 on Friday night at Oracle Arena to lead the NBA Finals series 3-1.
Superstar Kawhi Leonard once again played the big part in the Raptors win, he scored 36 points and grabbed 12 rebounds.
The Raptors used a big third quarter run, outscoring the Warriors 37-21. During the third quarter, Serge Ibaka and Leonard combined for 24 points, while the whole Warriors team only scored 21 points.
With the Game 4 in the books, the Raptors now have the championship in sight as they are only one win away from franchise's first title.
Dubbed as the 'Splash Brothers', Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry combined for 55 points in Kevin Durant's absence, but the Warriors were no match for the Raptors.
After the game, Kawhi Leonard answered Doris Burke's question of "How do you maintain your patience and still be productive?"
Leonard said: "I don't play hero basketball. I'm not playing for fans. I'm just playing to win. I'm not out here trying to break records."
