Pressure’s on Warriors need Klay Thompson the top-15 player to show up in Game 2

Golden State beat the Toronto Raptors 109-104 in Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Sunday night at Scotiabank Arena, tying the best-of-seven series at a game apiece and taking back home-court advantage. They almost got a steal but instead the Warriors retained possession and ended up giving Andre Iguodala a wide open 3-pointer look.

Down 59-54 at halftime with a two-game hole looming, Golden State opened the second half on an 18-0 run, turning a five-point deficit into a 12-point lead.

It's the exact opposite approach of Toronto Raptors small forward Kawhi Leonard, who's quiet demeanour and even-keeled approach brings a level of calm even in the biggest moments.

DeMarcus Cousins was inserted into the starting lineup and delivered 11 points, 10 rebounds and six assists, and Draymond Green had 17 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists - missing by one assist a fourth straight triple-double. He shot a three-pointer and came down awkwardly with spread out legs.

Tel Aviv has so far refused to recognize the rights of Palestinian Bedouins and denies them access to basic services. The rally was organized by Iranian-backed militias collectively known as the Popular Mobilization Forces.

The series will now shift to Oakland for Games 3 and 4 on Wednesday and Friday respectively, and the Warriors have all the momentum they need.

Thompson added the Warriors may have gotten too much time off after sweeping the Western Conference finals.

Raptors - 101: Leonard 34, VanVleet 17, Lowry 13, Siakam 12, Green 8, Ibaka 7, Powell 7, Gasol 6.
