Fortenbaugh: The pro-Golden State narratives such as, "Win it for KD" and "It's the final game in the history of Oracle Arena" make for great conversation, but I prefer to traffic in data over emotion. Speaking of which, here's some data for those of you considering a Game 6 wager: Toronto is 2-0 straight up and against the spread in Oakland this series with a plus-27 scoring differential.
Let's take it one step further. In Game 5, the Warriors made a ridiculous 20 3-pointers on an absurd 47.6 percent shooting percentage from deep. Conversely, the Raptors knocked down just eight 3-pointers while shooting an abysmal 25 percent from long range. Neither performance is sustainable, in my opinion, which is the primary reason why I see Toronto finishing the job in Oakland on Thursday night.
