Tournament: NBA. Play-off. Final
After two absolutely predictable but still surprising away matches on the court that belongs to Golden State and in final games №3 and № 4, Toronto in frames of the 5th game on its court has a splendid chance to gain the victory, but Warriors have absolutely lived up to their name. Having lost Durant and fooled away the advantage by the end of the 3 quarter, they have managed to tip the scale in their favor. 105:106 – and series is again going to Oakland.
Having great experience in playing hard matches, Golden State on home court has to win and to turn the deal into the decisive match. But Toronto is simply good. Raptors headed by Kawhi Leonard would have surely finished their tournament path in the 5th match but they have lost courage a little bit when they saw injured Durant. He has attracted attention having freed some space for Steph Curry. The Warriors has rushed forward and Toronto was not able to win back the advantage.
Durant won’t participate in the 6th game, Dinosaurs will be able to play in defense as well as they were doing in previous matches on Golden State Arena. It is probable, that the hosts will be able to win the first half but then Toronto has to even the game thanks to greater balance and play it according to its scenario and this can lead to final win.
