NBA Finals Game 6 Toronto Raptors vs GS Warriors: Can the Raptors Win the Championship on the Road?
The Raptors lost a close Game 5 behind the sharp 3-point shooting of Klay Thompson and Steph Curry. It is a testament of the defending champion’s resiliency to win a tough game on the road. That being said, the Raptors shot poorly from 3s at 25% (8-32) in Game 5 while they shot much better in Game 3 (44.7% 3FG or 17-38) and only a little better in Game 4 (31.3% 3FG or 10-32).
The Warriors would get emotional boost to play for the injured Kevin Durant and playing for the last time in the Oakland arena. So it is important for the Raptors to withstand the early momentum and not let the Warriors to have a huge lead that let the raucous Warriors fans to be the X-factor. The Raptors did well in their Game 3 and 4 wins but Game 6 would be a much bigger hurdle to overcome.
