The Toronto Raptors stepped up in Game 6 and defeated the Golden State Warriors (110-114) to become the 2019 NBA champions.

In a crazy game with consecutive lead changes, Stephen Curry missed the three-pointer (110-111) and the Raptors sealed the deal from the free-throw line, earning their first-ever NBA title.

Five players scored in double figures for the winners, with Pascal Siakam and Kyle Lowry posting 26 points apiece.

Five players scored in double figures for the losing squad as well, with Klay Thompson having a game-high 30 points.

Toronto won the series 4-2.
