The Toronto Raptors have clenched the very first NBA Finals appearance in franchise history as they defeated a 15-point deficit to conquer the Milwaukee Bucks by a final score of 100-94. The Raptors are the 21st team in NBA history to win a best-of-seven series after trailing 2-0 and the very first team to do so since the Cleveland Cavaliers overcame the Boston Celtics in the 2018 Eastern Conference Finals. Kawhi Leonard led all scorers with 27 points (9-22 FG), along with a career-high 17 rebounds and 7 assists for the Raptors in the victory. Leonard is the very first participant with that many points, rebounds, and assists in a playoff series-clinching win since Michael Jordan (38 points, 19 rebounds, 7 assists) in the 1991 Eastern Conference Semifinals against the 76ers. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Bucks with 21 points (7-18 FG), 11 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 blocks in the losing effort.
