(SOUNDBITE)(English) RAPTORS PLAYER KYLE LOWRY SAYING: "We won three games, it's the first to four, we understand that they're the defending champs and they're not gonna go out easy, they're gonna come and fight and prepare to play the next game, I mean that's how we're preparing ourselves like, you know we gotta to prepare ourselves to play the next game, we haven't done anything yet." 5.

(SOUNDBITE)(English) REPORTER ASKING WARRIORS PLAYER DRAYMOND GREEN: "As that's happening, as you're sort of feeling the game go the other way what are you thinking and how are you trying to sort of claw back in those moments?" WARRIORS PLAYER DRAYMOND GREEN SAYING: "This sucks, you know, sucks really bad.

You know you're just trying to do whatever you can to change it, to get a stop, get a bucket, get some momentum, every time we did they answered, and so...yeah it sucked, a lot...but can't get it back now." STORY: The Toronto Raptors produced a strong third quarter to defeat the Golden State Warriors 105-92 in Oakland on Friday (June 7) to take a 3-1 lead in the Finals and move one win away from the franchise's first NBA championship.

The first half belonged to the Warriors but the tide turned in the third quarter when the visitors outscored the two-time defending champions 37-21 behind five-for-seven shooting and two momentum-swinging three pointers from Kawhi Leonard.

The Warriors did themselves no favours on Friday, turning the ball over 19 times, missing seven free throws and making less than 30 percent of their three-point attempts.

After a spectacular 47 points in Game Three, Warriors guard Stephen Curry struggled on Friday, shooting just nine of 22 from the field and making two of his nine three-point attempts.

The only team to overcome a 3-1 deficit in the Finals was the LeBron James-led Cleveland Cavaliers, who beat the Warriors in 2016.

The loss means the Warriors may have played their final game at Oracle Arena in Oakland, which has served as the team's home since the 1971-72 season, although Game Six will be back there on June 13 if they win in Toronto on Monday (June 10).

The Warriors move to the new Chase Center in San Francisco next season.
