Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals is off to a thrilling start. After some back and forth action, the Toronto Raptors took a 33-32 lead over the Golden State Warriors after the first quarter.

Kyle Lowry came out firing, and he couldn’t miss in the opening minutes, racking up 11 points on 4-of-4 shooting to start the game. Pascal Siakam soon chipped in, and the Raptors built a quick nine-point lead, thanks to five early 3s. The Warriors weren’t going to just give up in the final game at Oracle, though, and hung around due to some nice shooting from Klay Thompson and a boost off the bench from DeMarcus Cousins.

Lowry led all scorers with 15 points, while Siakam added eight of his own. Klay Thompson paced the Warriors with 10 points, and Steph Curry chipped in seven.

Storylines

Raptors: Kawhi Leonard looked like he was leading the Raptors toward their first NBA title in the fourth quarter of Game 5. However, Toronto ended up going cold in the final three minutes despite holding a six-point lead. Leonard will need to have another heroic performance as the Raptors are going to need his scoring ability if they want to close out the series at Oracle Arena. Look for Leonard to be more aggressive than he’s ever been in Game 6.

Warriors: Meanwhile, the Warriors are entering Game 6 much like they’ve entered nine of the last 10 games in the playoffs: without Durant. After losing Durant to a heartbreaking injury, the team is going to have to rely on Curry and Klay Thompson like they have throughout much of the postseason. Both Curry and Thompson are going to have to be at their best if they want to force a Game 7. As a team, Golden State knocked down 20 shots from beyond the arc in Game 5 and still only came away with a one-point victory.

Prediction, pick

The Warriors are going to need another gutsy performance in Game 6 to keep their season alive. Despite dropping both games at home earlier in the series, Golden State gets the job done at home.
