Toronto Raptors @ Golden State Warriors NBA Championship Game 6 Tips

The Golden State Warriors have forced Game 6 against the Toronto Raptors with the series shifting back to Oracle Arena. 

Toronto leads 3-2 and they will be eager to capture their first NBA Championship in Oakland as they try to avoid the Warriors forcing a Game 7. 

In Game 5, the Warriors were playing for their season and they managed to scrape by 106-105 with Steph Curry and Klay Thompson hitting important threes late in the game. Curry finished with 31 points, eight rebounds and seven assists, while Thompson scored 26 points. The big talking point however was Kevin Durant suffering an Achilles injury at his first game back from injury. 

Toronto’s Kawhi Leonard finished with 26 points, 12 rebounds, two steals and two blocks but couldn’t find enough room to take the final shot; Kyle Lowry was way off the mark with his attempted title-winning buzzer-beater. He finished the game with 18 points and centre Marc Gasol scored 17 points.

The Warriors have been on the receiving end of blowing a 3-1 lead which happened in 2016 against LeBron James’ Cleveland Cavaliers. Cruising to a 3-1 lead, the Cavs would win the next three games to capture the NBA Championship. This time around, they will look to be the team to inflict that humiliating loss, but first, they must win Game 6 at home.

Durant’s injury is big, but they didn’t have him for the first four games of the series, and most wouldn’t have expected him to have been rushed back for Game 5. It will be the final game played at Oracle Arena and the Warriors would love to give their fans one last famous victory. And of course, they want to head back to Toronto for Game 7.

Curry has been phenomenal in the NBA Finals and with his Splash Brother, Thompson, by his side, the Warriors are still a big obstacle to overcome. If the Raptors don’t bring their A-game, expect the Warriors to be too good and they can tie the series 3-3.
