It was the lowest rating for Game 1 of the NBA Finals in nearly a decade.
"We had four or five decent possessions there and we just came away empty on all of them", Raptors coach Nick Nurse said.
It appears that Obama has rather enjoyed his post-presidential career thus far, and at the very least, put together an impressive wardrobe.
Following the victory over the Toronto Raptors - Cousins took to socialm edia and shared a light-hearted photo of injured Warriors players in wheelchairs. And yet on Sunday night, it was clear as day, especially to Kanell's co-host and former National Basketball Association veteran Raja Bell, that Toronto's supporting cast is moving in the opposite direction as Golden State.
Pascal Siakam was 0 for 3 in that bad stretch. It looked like the Raptors were on their way to a 2-0 lead in this series. Add it all up, and it was a 24-1 run for the two-time defending champions.
It became apparent in the third quarter that the Raptors were frazzled. "And, yes, we won Game 1, I think everybody else outside of our locker room was a lot more excited than we were". They got out in transition and got a little confidence going. Duke proceeded to lose a pivotal home game against their biggest rival.
Even after all that sputtering, the Raptors still had chances. Curry got a hold of the ball following the foul and threw it into the air.
Twitter Reacts to Serena Williams-Dominic Thiem Controversy
She went 3-1 ahead in the second set before Williams, the 2002, 2013 and 2015 champion, clawed her way back to 3-3. Being told of the decision prompted a furious reaction from Thiem, who said: "I don't really get it, seriously".
He averaged 6.2 points and 5.2 rebounds per game during the regular season and has been an impactful defender for the Warriors. Toronto had none of those in the second half, but was able to slice the deficit to 2 and needed one more defensive stop.
However coach Steve Kerr revealed after the game that the injury is likely to be minor.
"We understand what this team brings and what type of effort it's going to take to beat these guys".
The two teams will now face off on the Warriors' home turf in Oakland, Cal. on Wednesday. By the end fo the period, Toronto had shot just 7-of-22 from the field. They trailed by five points at the half but stormed back in the second half to win. They would have headed west playing what looks like will be an even more hurt Warriors team because Klay Thompson's hamstring didn't look good after he hobbled off the court late in Game 2 and didn't return.
"Well first of all, people gotta get in their seats", said TSN's Jack Armstrong following the game. "That's all we gotta do - get one".
"We will watch the film and get better, and that's all we can do right now".
