The Golden State Warriors didn’t get it done by much on Monday night, but at the end of 48 minutes, they got the job done against the Toronto Raptors, winning 106-105 to take the NBA Finals to a Game 6 and keep up their hopes of a third consecutive title in the process. The game began with a flurry of shooting from both teams, with Steph Curry knocking down nine points in the blink of an eye and Kevin Durant on court making shots as well for the Warriors.
The Raptors kept responding, though, and the game looked to have swung totally in their favor when Durant got an injury in the second quarter and had to leave the game. That, however, wasn’t everything they needed, as the Warriors somehow held them off in the end to make it 3-2 in the series on the back of 31 points from Steph and 26 from Klay Thompson. Kawhi Leonard was only 9-24 from the floor but still had 26 points as Toronto lost out on clinching the title in the first Finals. Game 6 will be back in Oakland on Thursday night as the Warriors attempt to make the Raptors the second team ever to lose a 3-1 lead.
