has more in this morning's sports. good morning, everyone. kawhi leonard put up another epic performance. 27 points, 17 rebounds and a huge dunk over giannis antetokounmpo. to lead the raptors to their first-ever nba finals. toronto overcame a 15-point deficit in game six to claim the eastern conference title. the raptors ended the third quarter and started the fourth quarter on a 26-3 run. serge ibaka throwing it down. look at kyle lowry, he's going to get the steal and then one of his eight assists goes to none other than mr. kawhi leonard. yeah, that was absolutely beautiful. he was masterful in this series. toronto went up by eight. leonard, as i mentioned, finished with 27 points, 17 boards, 7 assists. he also had a little bit of luck. nice bound there. that will do it. for the first time since 1995, the raptors are the eastern conference champions. 100-94 the final.
6:45 am
next up, the warriors. >>they're one of the greatest teams in history, right? i think what is this, five straight finals for them? there's not a whole lot of teams that have done that. so it will be a tall task, but we'll try to figure it out. the return of the a's power has powered their best winning streak in six seasons. saturday's win over the mariners makes it eight in a row for oakland. yeah, mom, grab some snacks early because in the first inning matt chapman got things going. two out and this was his 12th home run of the year. the a's on the board. in the fourth inning, tied at 2, marcus simeon with a nice little base hit and that will untie it. santana bobbled it so that allowed moriano to come around and score. then a double brings in two. the a's up 5-2. a beautiful day in oakland.
6:46 am
that caused problems in the past because of the sunshine. look at this, simeon had no troubles. the a's won their eighth in a row, 6-5 the final there. an 18-2 drubbing by the diamondbacks on friday night did not stop this little guy from having a great time on saturday. san francisco unfortunately gave up ten more in saturday's matinee, the first inning. look at the bouncer getting past pablo sandoval. that allows arizona's first run to score. and then, yeah, that guy is still having a good time even though they got one more in the inning. but look at kevin pillar with a great diving catch. that was deep enough to drive in a run for arizona but pillar would complete the double play. that was absolutely fantastic, and that will make the little . marte had three hits and four rbis friday night. he had two hits including that solo shot on saturday. diamondbacks put up another
