Toronto, Jun 18 (IBNS): Creating history, Toronto Raptors have won the National Basketball Association (NBA) for the first time as a non-American team, media reports said.

Leading the residents to burst into joy, Toronto Raptors have won the Larry O'Brien Trophy.

Toronto Raptors defeated back-to-back defending champions, Golden State Warriors, to win the trophy.

Golden State Warriors were denied by the Raptors to lift the title for the third consecutive time.

John Campbell, the head coach of the University of Toronto men's basketball, has been quoted by BBC as saying, "There's no question that right now there is an entire nation behind the Raptors."

"Certainly in my lifetime I've never experienced a sort of energy like this in our country [around basketball]."
