Facing an 0-1 deficit in the Finals and without Kevin Durant, the Warriors needed big shots to beat the gritty Toronto Raptors on the road.
Quinn Cook, national champion, knows all about big shots.
While Quinn has just 9 points to his All-Star teammates Steph Curry and Klay Thompson’s 23 and 25, those came as three triples, two late in the fourth quarter in a tight game. If you aren’t familiar with the NBA, The Finals is a best-of-seven series– anywhere from four to seven games depending on how competitive they are. The Warriors had lost the first of the series and were down 0-1. The first team to win four games wins the series.
The Warriors will certainly need bench players like the former Duke star; with Kevin Durant already injured as well as Klay Thompson and Andre Iguodola, the back-to-back champs need all the scoring they can get.
