On the last day of the North American Professional Basketball Championship (NBA), the Toronto Raptors topped the Golden State Warriors with 53 points. This is the club record for the winner in the team’s history and the third-largest losing record for the losing party.
Pascal Siakam, the most successful player in the game, contributed 36 points to the victory, which was the best game of the season among basketball players celebrating his 27th birthday. The Raptors have led by 61 points, but ultimately had to resolve the 53-point gap. However, he also broke his club record of 46 points in the game against Indiana since last year. Toronto has won only the second time in the past 15 games. The Warriors have only been defeated twice, surpassing the Lakers on both occasions: 63 points in 1972 and 56 points next season.
Memphis beat the Minnesota State team 120-108 with nearly 50% efficiency from beyond the three-point line, and his small bench rushed with 56 points. In the Grizzlies, eight players achieved double-digit throwing results, and four of them were on the bench. In Minnesota, Karl-Anthony Towns became the most successful basketball player in the game with 30 points and 16 rebounds, but he shined in vain.
Under the guidance of Jannis Antetokunmpo, Milwaukee won at home in Portland. Selected as the most valuable player in the past two seasons, Antetokunmpo scored 47 points, representing a personal record. He succeeded 18 of 21 free throws and sold 11 of 13 free throws.
Utah beat Chicago 113-106 and won the championship for the eighth time in a row. It proved to be better than the Jazz’s regular away team in 21 home games, setting a club record.
Devin Booker contributed 32 points to the team’s victory: The Phoenix Suns won the guest 140-103 in the game against Oklahoma City. Domestic players shot 60%. In scoring, the Suns’ record so far this season is 132 points.
