Basketball is the most popular sport in the Philippines and was introduced by the USA at the turn of the 19th century. Today the Philippines has the second most popular basketball league in the world, the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA). Several notable ex-NBA players currently play in the PBA bringing validity to the league.
Game 6 of the NBA finals took place last night in Oakland, California on the home court of the Golden State Warriors. The game ended up being a nail biter that wasn’t decided until the last few seconds of the game, even then it seemed to drag on forever as Toronto fans could see their team would reign victorious with only 0.9 seconds on the clock.
Golden State was going for an NBA Finals three-peat, a feat that has never been accomplished before. Unfortunately, the Raptors had other plans as they cruised ahead to a 3-2 lead in the series.
Game 6 was similar to game 5 in the fact that it came down to last few seconds to determine a winner. The 2019 NBA Finals was some of the best basketball many fans have ever seen. The series produced some amazing footage; below you will see some of the best plays compiled into a short video.
Now that Toronto has walked away as the 2019 NBA Champions skeptics are starting to question what the offseason will bring. Klay Thompson had to leave the game late in the 3rd quarter and would not return. Today it was confirmed that he had torn the ACL in his left knee.
Kevin Durant trade rumors have been swirling around for a minute now, but after he tore his Achilles in game 5 of the Finals, skeptics are wondering if he will stay put for another year.
Filipino bettors can wager on NBA games, PBA games, and other international basketball leagues by utilizing offshore sportsbooks that services the Philipines. Online sportsbooks like BetOnline offer legal betting lines to the Philippines by operating legally in their country of origin and by providing licensing information on their sites. Even though basketball season is winding down, you can still find some PBA lines and NBA futures.
