OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Kawhi Leonard raised his arms high in triumph and celebrated Canada’s first NBA championship.

“We the North!” is now “We the Champs!”

Leonard and the Toronto Raptors captured the country’s first major title in 26 years with their most remarkable road win yet in the franchise’s NBA Finals debut, outlasting the battered and depleted two-time defending champion Golden State Warriors 114-110 on Thursday night in a Game 6 for the ages.
