NBA Finals Schedule Tonight: Raptors vs. Warriors Game 6 Live Stream, TV Channel, Score and Latest Odds

Oracle Arena will, after all, host one final NBA game—but it will not be an occasion Kevin Durant remembers with much fondness.

The Golden State Warriors got the job done in Toronto on Monday night, winning 106-105 to force a Game 6 back in Oakland, California.

Trailing by six points with three minutes left, the defending NBA champions looked set to relinquish their title—but rallied to beat the Raptors by a point.

The win kept the series alive—but at a cost, as Durant, playing his first game in over a month, suffered an Achilles injury in the second quarter.

The two-time reigning NBA Finals MVP tried to dribble past Serge Ibaka, but suddenly stopped and limped sideways. He then slumped to the court and grabbed the same lower right calf area that had troubled him for the last month.

He had to be helped off the floor and now looks set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

"I don't believe there's anybody to blame," Warriors General Manager Myers told reporters in a post-match press conference. "But I understand this world, and if you have to, you can blame me. I run my basketball operations department."

A teary-eyed Myers insisted the Warriors had "felt good about the process" of clearing Durant to return on Monday night, despite the fact he had not played since May 8.

To defend their title, the Warriors must become only the second team in the history of the NBA Finals to come back from 3-1 down, after the Cleveland Cavaliers achieved the feat against them in 2016.

The Warriors, however, will have to make history without the 10-time All-Star.

Here's everything you need to know about the sixth game of the series.

When and where is Game 6?

The sixth game of the NBA Finals tips off at 9 p.m. ET on Thursday, June 13, at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California.

If needed, the series will return to Canada for Game 7 at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto on Sunday, June 16.

TV channel

As has been the case since 2003, ABC exclusively broadcasts every game of the NBA Finals. Its broadcast team for this year is Jeff Van Gundy and Mark Jackson. Meanwhile, ESPN's NBA Countdown crew will consist of Michelle Beadle, Jalen Rose, Paul Pierce and Stan Van Gundy.

In Canada, coverage of the series is split between Sportsnet One and The Sports Network. The latter will broadcast Game 6 on Thursday.

Live stream

A live stream of Game 5 will be available on Watch ESPN, both on desktop and via the mobile app, as well as on fuboTV.


According to data compiled by Oddshark, the Warriors are the 3.5-point favorite to win Game 6.

Golden State was a 5.5-point favorite in the two games it played at Oracle Arena earlier this series, but lost both.

Team news

Kevin Durant's absence will again be the main talking point ahead of the game but for completely different reasons than it was during the first four games of the series.

After spending a month on the sideline with a calf problem, the 30-year-old suffered an Achilles injury three minutes into the second quarter in Game 5 and might not have played his last ever game in a Warriors jersey.

If Durant's absence was felt from a basketball perspective in the first four games, it could have an even bigger psychological impact in Game 6.
