The Raptors lead 106-94 with 4:42 left to play. Klay Thompson has been assessed a technical foul for aruging with the referee, which signifies the frustration the Warriors are feeling at the moment. Danny Green just ripped down an offensive rebound and Nick Nurse took a timeout to settle down his team and talk things over as they have a chance to close out this Game 1.
Danny Green buries a corner 3, his third 3-pointer of the game, and the Raptors take a 100-88 lead to force a Warriors timeout with 7:31 remaining. After making four total 3-pointers in the entire Conference Finals, Green has found his stroke in the NBA Finals once again.

Teams are trading buckets early in the fourth. Fred VanVleet's four points and a Pascal Siakam layup were matched by a bucket from Klay Thompson, a 3-ball from Jonas Jerebko and one made free throw from Demarcus Cousins. Raptors lead 94-87.
End of third quarter: Raptors 88, Warriors 81
Toronto holds a seven-point lead going into the fourth quarter behind a huge third frame from Pascal Siakam. Siakam had 14 points going a perfect 6-for-6 from the field and now has a game-high 26 points. Kawhi Leonard also found a bit of a rhythm in attacking the hoop and getting to the free throw line, scoring 10 points in the quarter - he has 18 points.
Stephen Curry's 26 points, Klay Thompson's 15 points and Draymond Green's near-triple-double of 10 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists has the Warriors within striking distance.

Pascal Siakam is on fire out of the half. He has 10 points in the first five minutes of the third quarter to give the Raptors 73-63 lead. He's all over the floor right now, relentlessly attacking the rim to put pressure on the Warriors' defence.

Halftime: Raptors 59, Warriors 49
Kawhi Leonard has just eight points, yet the Raptors have a 10-point lead into the half after a great first two quarters. Marc Gasol has been fantastic on both ends of the floor and has a team-high 14 points to go with five boards. Fred VanVleet is at it again with seven points off the bench while Kyle Lowry leads the team with a plus-12 +/-, doing a little bit of everything, per usual. Lowry has four points, three rebounds and six assists and took a charge that sent Scotiabank Arena into a frenzy.
After scoring 11 points in the first quarter, Curry only had two points in the second frame. Like Lowry, Draymond Green has done a little bit of everything with six points, seven rebounds and three assists to keep the Warriors competitive. Klay Thompson has nine points on 4-for-11 shooting from the field.

With 4:06 remaining in the half, the Raptors hold a slim 42-41 lead. The Warriors have done a great job of swarming Kawhi Leonard any time he tries to attack, holding him to just one made field goal (1-6 FG). It's a balanced scoring effort from Toronto who has had eight different players score but no individual in double-figures.
Golden State has gotten valuable minutes off the bench from Quinn Cook (6 points) and Shaun Livingston (4 points), who is making plays on both ends of the floor.

It didn't take Stephen Curry very long to get going in this one - he's already up to 11 points on 3-for-5 shooting from the perimeter. However, the Raptors are in the lead 22-19 with under three minutes to go in the first frame behind a pair of 3's from Marc Gasol.
Also, Klay Thompson threw down this vicious dunk.
