Welcome to Saturday’s roundup of must-see sports headlines.

Today we look at Raptors fans taking over Oracle Arena after their team’s stunning win, France kicking off the Women’s FIFA World Cup with a must-see goal, and the incredible comeback story of the Auburn gymnast who was able to walk down the aisle at her wedding a couple months after suffering a devastating injury during a competition.

Let’s get started!


TOP STORY: Raptors Fans Sing ‘O Canada’ at Oracle Following Team’s Stunning Game 4 Win

The Toronto Raptors are just one win away from capturing their first NBA Championship and their fans could not be more excited. Following the Raptors stunning 105-92 win in Game 4 on Friday night, fans took over Oracle Arena, singing the Canadian national anthem ‘O Canada’ and chanting “Let’s Go Raptors” and “One More Win” in full voice.

If the Raptors are able to win the title on their home court on Monday night, tonight’s game will turn out to be the final one played in the 47-year history of Oracle Arena, with the Warriors set to move into their new home, The Chase Center, next season. And what a way to close down what used to be one of the toughest places to come into and pick up a road win – especially in the postseason.

The Raptors have made it look easy, showing poise and persistence and outlasting the defending champions in back-to-back games on the road. Kawhi Leonard added to his legendary postseason run with a game-high 36 points and was able to overcome the return of Klay Thompson and his team-high 28 points. The Raptors rallied from a halftime deficit, outscoring the Warriors 37-21 in the third quarter.

Game 5 is scheduled for Monday night at 9pm ET. It could be the crowning moment for the Toronto franchise and their passionate fan base or it could be the start of a historic comeback for the champs. Either way, it’ll be another must-watch affair.

A post shared by Samantha Cerio (@sam_cerio) on

Auburn Tigers gymnast Samantha Cerio made national headlines on April 5th when she suffered a devastating injury after she landed awkwardly at the NCAA Regional Semifinals. After dislocating both knees and tearing multiple ligaments, the gymnast had one goal in mind – to be able to walk down the aisle at her wedding.

Two months later, Cerio is making more headlines, but this time for accomplishing her goal as she made it down the aisle unassisted. She told USA TODAY Sports that knowing that she “was able to stand up on my own feet and able to walk around and walk down the aisle” made the day feel “a whole lot sweeter.”


THE LIGHTER SIDE: Jimmy Kimmel Asks Toronto Fans to Trash Talk the Warriors

Can Canadians Talk Trash?On the other side of the border, in this first-ever international NBA Finals, it has been pretty low-key. Not that Canadians aren't excited, they are very excited. They're just not as terrible as we are. They are polite and friendly people. But what happens when sports rivalries rear their ugly heads? We wanted to find out so we went to Toronto and asked Raptors fans to talk trash about the Golden State Warriors. #TrashTalk Guillermo at NBA Media Day 2019 https://youtu.be/l-41ENm1X2Q SUBSCRIBE to get the latest #KIMMEL: http://bit.ly/JKLSubscribe Watch Mean Tweets: http://bit.ly/KimmelMT10 Connect with Jimmy Kimmel Live Online: Visit the Jimmy Kimmel Live WEBSITE: http://bit.ly/JKLWebsite Like Jimmy Kimmel on FACEBOOK: http://bit.ly/KimmelFB Like Jimmy Kimmel Live on FACEBOOK: http://bit.ly/JKLFacebook Follow @JimmyKimmel on TWITTER: http://bit.ly/KimmelTW Follow Jimmy Kimmel Live on TWITTER: http://bit.ly/JKLTwitter Follow Jimmy Kimmel Live on INSTAGRAM: http://bit.ly/JKLInstagram About Jimmy Kimmel Live: Jimmy Kimmel serves as host and executive producer of Emmy-winning "Jimmy Kimmel Live," ABC's late-night talk show.

Can Canadians Talk Trash? https://youtu.be/Kp1HwI1JHkI2019-06-06T07:30:00.000Z
It’s a general known stereotype that Canadians are some of the most polite people put on this Earth. A producer puts that to the test in a recent episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! when he asks Raptors fans to talk trash to the Warriors. Come on Canadians, this is your chance to show us the best of your worst!

“Why would I trash talk them, they haven’t done nothing wrong to me or my team,” said a Toronto fan in the video. “All I’m saying is everybody’s playing right, so if they want to win they better play better than us.”

The results are in – Canadians are really bad at trash talking, but their basketball team is really good and that’s all that matters this month.
