History was made tonight.
For the first time ever the NBA was played outside of the USA.
For the first time ever a Canadian team has won game 1 of the finals.
The Raptors are three games away from being the first non-American team to win it all.
But...let's not get carried away.
They are playing Golden State who have won three World titles and have been in the finals 5 times.
Even if Kevin Durant misses another game,
The Warriors will not go quietly into the night...
Experience, history, and skill are on their side...
But for now, let's just savor a little piece of Canadian victory history; The Raptors won the first ever game played outside of the states and it feels pretty good.
