I felt the Warriors would of won that if Klay didn't get injured. Its such a pity as GSW fan. A fair few Toronto fans led by Drake are horrible, cheering when KD got inj, abusing steph currys parents, attacking GSW fans outside their ground, watching the game in Vancouver I got a bit of shit from them.

The playoffs in previous years the Warriors have benefited from injuries of opp team stars, so cant begrudge them, but for me no way they win if we had KD and  Klay fit, even looney is not fully fit. I actually feel if we won last night we would of won it out with Klay fit.

Lowry gave them a great start last night and VVF finished strongly. Proud of the Warriors and how they kept fighting despite how many blows we took.

This summer will be interesting - do we resign KD and klay on maxs even though both have serious injuries, we might not see KD next yr and Klay will be 8 months away, there saying allstar weekend, do we resign Cousins.

Huge achievement for the raptors and absolute vindication for Kawhi aggers what happened last year in San Antonio. He gambled on himself and is going to win big, either in Toronto or anywhere else. Be interesting to see if he'll consider staying.

Klay tore his ACL. With KD likely to leave and Klay out, I wonder if they'll consider blowing things up. Five straight finals, three wins and a 73 win season will ensure they go down as one of the best teams of all time. Could still be plenty of line in them though and if KD stays, they'll start next year as deserved favourites once again.

Kyrie has opted out and looks like he's on his way to Brooklyn. The man is a cancer.

Durant expected to miss all of next season.

I’ve followed the warriors since I moved to the Bay Area for the past 19 years. The last 7 years has been great watching them and I don’t believe this is over yet. This playoffs has been very hard to watch with all the injuries but they showed great courage, I honestly thought they should have gone for a layup with Iggy last night in the final play as Curry was triple covered, but he got a good look.

KD will most likely take the option, and will be back before the end of next season. Klay will also sign again, and will be back in Jan. The big question is can they get enough wins in the first half of next season. If they can and sneak into the playoffs as 6-8 seed then they will be very hard to beat. Lakers are already favorites for next year with the Dubs 6th favorites. Will be very open whatever happens.

Lakers favourites? What do the bookies know about who they're getting that we don't? Kawhi? PG13?

Bucks and Raptors both shorter prices than Lakers..

I'd be surprised if Kawhi went to Lakers, he'd hardly want to play 2nd fiddle to Le Bron?

Kawhi wouldn't mind his role in the team as long as it have him a chance to win and he got paid like the max player he is.

When he was moving last summer there was speculation that Kawhi favoured the Clippers over the Lakers in LA for exactly that reason?

Durant (4 years, 164m) going to Brooklyn to team up with Kyrie (4 years, 141m).

I mean he's one of the best players of all time but at present he can't f**king walk. Signing him to that deal now is mental.

Talk of DeAndre going to the nets as well
