The Golden State Warriors may have been the bigger losers, though, as they briefly watched Kevin Durant return from a month-long absence only to lose him again to injury, this time a potentially devastating Achilles injury.
“It’s a bizarre feeling that we all have right now,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said afterward. “An incredible win and a horrible loss at the same time.”
While the defending champs lived to see another day, will their latest injury prove to be their knockout blow? Can the Raptors refocus after squandering a late lead, or have they already blown their chance to bring the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy north of the border?
We’ll preview—and predict—NBA Finals Game 7 after presenting the scheduling and latest odds
It’s more than poetic that the little production Durant could provide—11 points in 12 minutes—proved literally just enough for the Warriors to scratch out a victory. It’s also revealing.
Sans Durant, Golden State’s margin for error is nonexistent. Having him available meant the Warriors could essentially get by without Jordan Bell, Alfonzo McKinnie and Andrew Bogut (eight minutes combined). Expanding the rotation would be difficult since none of the three has looked particularly capable of taking on a bigger role.
This is the last game Golden State will ever play at Oracle Arena. There’s too much heart, too much experience and too much skill to imagine the Warriors going out with a loss.
This might be the Raptors’ series to lose, but hoops intuition says the Warriors will find a way to send it back north for a winner-take-all Game 7.
