Raptors inching closer to historic Game 5 tip-off

The two politicians announced Monday that they have a friendly wager on the outcome of this year's NBA Finals, where the Raptors now hold a 3-1 series lead over the defending champion Golden State Warriors.

Montreal is getting its own "mini-Jurassic Park" on Peel St. for basketball fans and bandwagon jumpers to take in Game Five on Monday night.

This past Sunday, Durant was practicing with the team, with Steve Kerr saying "He looked good, we'll see where it goes".

Durant did not say anything as he walked past a horde of media to get toward the Warriors' locker-room. And it sounds like they're gearing up to give the Raps their biggest fight yet in Game 5.

Civil War came out in May 2016 and Dark Phoenix didn't start filming until June 2017. Avengers: Endgame is finally out-of-the-way, as it is no longer in the top five.

Kevin Durant's condition is being scrutinized on a minute-by-minute basis and understandably so.

Of course, no one can count out the Warriors just yet. Even if he isn't 100%, Durant's mere presence should make the Warriors more potent on the offensive end.

Durant, who has won the last two NBA Finals MVP awards, has not played since suffering a calf injury in the second round of the playoffs. "He's doing more today, and then we'll know more after that", Kerr said, according to ESPN's Nick Friedell. "No matter what percentage he's at, I'm sure he'll be impactful and effective".

While Toronto has been the healthier, steadier and more impressive team throughout this series, Thompson allowed himself to dream about the possibility of a Durant-led comeback. "It would be pretty storybook if he could come back and help us do the same".
