The Golden State Warriors are looking to stay alive in Game 6 at home against the Toronto Raptors.

Raptors eyeing close-out win

With the opportunity to close out the NBA Finals on their home floor in Game 5, the Raptors fell short in the waning moments of the fourth quarter. It was a game that they let slip through their grasps as they led by six points with just over three minutes left in the fourth quarter. However, things fell apart from that point on as the Warriors took over with a 9-2 run from that point on to the end of the contest. This had seen All-Star forward Kawhi Leonard take over that had put them in the position to win the NBA Finals as he had 26 points in the contest that included 10 points in that run to give the Raptors the lead. Leonard has been their unquestioned top scoring option that has put them in the position to potentially secure their first NBA title in team history. Despite his consistent production, it was the team’s utter lack of shooting success in the game as they hit 25 percent from beyond the arc while shooting 44.7 percent from the floor in the contest.

This saw them have six players score in double figures in the contest while Leonard is the only scorer to notch more than 20 points in the game. However, his production has been the lone consistent factor for them that has put them in this promising position as he’s averaging 29.8 points, 10.6 rebounds, and 4.4 assists while shooting 43.2 percent from the floor and 37.9 percent from beyond the arc. This has seen him notch more than 20 points in each contest while recording three double-doubles during this span. What could also work in their favor is that they had previously won the first two games in the series that were played at Oracle Arena. With Durant being out of the mix for the rest of the NBA Finals, this could give them the edge to continue to finally close out the defending champions on their home floor.

Warriors hoping to force a Game 7

It has been nothing short of a tough NBA Finals for the Warriors that have continued to struggle to get any traction in the series against the Raptors. This hasn’t helped that they have been dealing with injuries throughout their roster in the first five games. All of this has been capped off with Golden State seeing Kevin Durant being lost for the rest of the series as he suffered a torn Achilles tendon in his first game played in over a month since being injured in Game 5 of the semifinals series against the Houston Rockets. Durant had gotten off to a strong start with 11 points in 12 minutes prior to the injury as he looked like he had picked up where he left off, but all of that came tumbling down on his first drive to the basket in the contest. This is a shattering loss that has quickly impacted the Warriors’ psyche with Durant being out for the rest of the playoffs.

However, the Warriors do have the consistent production from All-Star point guard Stephen Curry as he’s averaging 32.4 points, 5.8 assists, and 5.6 rebounds while shooting 41.9 percent shooting from the floor. Curry has been a huge offensive factor in the process as he has notched more than 25 points in every game with three contests with more than 30 points. This has seen him notch at least four 3-pointers three times. Meanwhile, All-Star guard Klay Thompson has been able to put up a high level of production since returning from his one-game absence due to a hamstring injury as he posted more than 25 points in each of the last two games as he hit 13 three-pointers in the last two contests combined. Ultimately, if the Warriors want to force an all-or-nothing Game 7, it will need Curry and Thompson to put up strong outings to offset the balanced production from the Raptors.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Raptors seemingly let Game 5 slip through their hands, but that shouldn’t be the case on Thursday night. It also helps that they won the previous two games at Oracle Arena in the series showing they aren’t intimidated on the road. Keep in mind, the Raptors are 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings in Golden State.

Prediction: Toronto +2.5

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Although Durant will no longer be available for the series, it should see this remain a higher scoring affair. These are two of the most offensively potent teams in the league. The over is 9-3 in the last 12 meetings in Golden State.

Prediction: Over 211.5
