I believe Raptors will close it out on Thursday but would like to see a game 7

Ok so just to be sure..being called a White knight is a bad thing right?

And who came up with these terms?

Morality warrior sounds so cheesy aswell.

Bro, they cheered when the dude's calf strained again and Ibaka had a dunk. When they realized he was done for the game they cheered him off the court. Most people would react that way (especially drunk in a crowd).

If you want to pass moral judgment on other people for a brief mistake that they rectified immediately after, then you're a white knight, yes.

I think both teams do great on the road. Raps would most likely win Game 6, however I want it to be won in Toronto.

I hope KD recovers to 100% health and keeps putting up all time numbers.

Hot take, but the reason why warriors executives and players were crying is cause they believe they are the reason why kd suffered that injury.

Especially bob myers, he already started playing the sympathy card right off the bat. Has it ever happened like this before?

Kawhi despite his own 10 point run in 4th was not impressive. Klay and Steph were clutch when it mattered and last possession we had Warriors defended masterfully. All in all we were close but did not deserved to win. On to the next one. We were outscored by 36 from 3. As said earlier in a way I’m glad that we did not win Championship tonight because of reactions of some of our fans, but because of KD’s injury.

alright cool i understand now!

just to make it clear If a poster clearly states in his post that he has no problem with Durant getting injured because it gives his team a better chance to win..that is disgusting..people can call me any made up **** they want but that is the truth.

You'd think based on law of averages that the Raptors won't win 3 of 3 in Golden State in the NBA finals. You'd also think that based on Karma the Raptors won't win game 7.

I was rooting hard for the Raptors to close this out in 5, but given the circumstances, and how the Warriors gutted one out after Durant's devastating injury I feel like this series deserves to go the 7 games.

The Warriors are true champions, and despite the constant attempts to diminish what the Warriors have managed to accomplish, they're one of the greatest teams in NBA history.

Anything but a 7 game battle would be a shame as far as I am concerned.

That is exactly why he cried. He does not care about KD, he cares how to avoid his responsibility and play emotional card.

People crap on Lowry but he was their best player by far..they would not have been close to this win without him. Fantastic this series. Missed shot doesn't change that.

The amount of pressure on Toronto and guys like Lowry in game 7...having been up 3-1 two minutes from winning it all? No..they don't want to have ANY part of that folks.

If Warriors win game 6 they win the series IMO.

Lowry has been fantastic.
