So anything is possible for this highly anticipated game 6. Catch every dribble from tip to final buzzer online here!
The Kyle Lowry, 30, and the Raptors have the momentum heading into Miami for this crucial game 6. The Raptors convincingly beat the Heat back in Toronto during game 5, 99-91. Now, with a 3-2 series lead, the Raptors have a chance at closing out in Miami if they can get another road win in this series. The Heat’s one loss at home to Toronto was during game 3 in a 95-91 heart-breaker. You can bet Raptor super-fan Drake will be on hand for this game 6 to cheer on his beloved team while also heckling Dwyane Wade and the Heat. Game 7, if needed, will be back in Toronto on May 15th.
Waiting for the winner of this series are the Cleveland Cavaliers. LeBron James and his Cavs are 8-0 in the playoffs this year. Yep, that’s scary good. After sweeping the Detroit Pistons, the Cavs crushed the Atlanta Hawks in 4 straight. If the Raptors do get past the Heat, it may be impossible for them to move to the NBA Finals with King James in their way. Good luck with that guys!
Then there is the West. The Golden State Warriors have been cruising through the playoffs and are the favorite to repeat as NBA champions. The Warriors’ all-star guard Stephen Curry was just named the first ever unanimous MVP and whoever from the East ends up facing them will have their hands full.
What do you think HollywoodLifers? Do the Heat have a shot at taking this series to 7? Or will you be rooting for the Raptors to clinch and move on to the Eastern Finals? Who do you think will win this epic showdown?
