Chasing history with an anxious nation ready to explode, the Raptors take to the Scotiabank Arena court tonight trying to close out the NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors.

Hundreds of thousands of fans gathered at communal viewing points from St. John’s to Vancouver and everywhere in between as the Raptors, up 3-1 in the best-of-seven series, tries to eliminate the two-time defending champions.

Golden State got a boost with the return of former MVP Kevin Durant but they face an uphill challenge. Only once in 32 occasions has a team come back from a 3-1 deficit to win an NBA title; ironically it was the Cleveland Cavaliers against the Warriors is 2016.

They remain singularly focused on the job, not the antics around the game or what could come.

“I just know we got to go win another game,” coach Nick Nurse said Sunday. “I've tried to do that all through the playoffs, just look at the next game and go win it. I imagine everything will take care of itself from there.”
