Stat line: 36 points, 12 rebounds, 4 steals and 5-9(55%) shooting from deep

Winning at the Oracle, especially in the playoffs, has proven to be a tall task for several teams over the past few years, but Kawhi and his squad made the Warriors seem like mere mortals despite having home court advantage.

The Klaw single-handedly out-duelled the Splash Brothers via his exhilarating double-double, sending the defending champs into an insurmountable 3-1 hole in the Finals. He shot a decent 11-22(50%) from the field, and took care of unfinished business from the time when he had to limp off the court during the West Finals in 2017 against GSW.

Kawhi made all his nine free-throws, while the Raptors, as a team, missed just one out of 24 FTs they were awarded that night. Yet again, Leonard exhibited nerves of steel required to beat the mighty Warriors on their home soil.
