Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals is off to a thrilling start. After exciting back and forth action, the Toronto Raptors have a narrow 60-57 lead over the Golden State Warriors after the first half. 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.The exciting back and forth action continued in the second quarter as both teams used mini bursts to temporarily take control of the game. Lowry and Siakam continued to play well for the Raptors, which was important because they weren’t getting quite the usual production from Kawhi Leonard. Despite playing shorthanded, the Warriors were able to hang around thanks to some nice minutes from Andre Iguodala, who threw down two big alley-oops to pump up the Oracle crowd. Plus, Thompson was happy to knock down free throws after being fouled twice on 3-pointers. Lowry put together a phenomenal half, finishing with 21 points, six rebounds and six assists, while Siakam added 13 points. For the Warriors, Thompson led the way with 18 points, while Iguodala chipped in 11. CBS Sports will be with you throughout Game 6 of the NBA Finals between the Raptors and Warriors.

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, pickThe 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.
