Warriors force Game 6

The Toronto Raptors had a chance to close out the Golden State Warriors and win their first ever NBA title.

But, Kyle Lowrey's three-point attempt from the left corner as time was expiring hit the edge of the backboard, giving the Warriors a 106-105 victory.

Toronto had the ball with 15 seconds left in regulation time, but were unable to set up for a clean look for the win.

Toronto trailed for most of the night until Kawhi Leonard heated up in the dying minutes.

Trailing 95-93, Leonard hit a three with 5:11 to go giving the Raptors its first lead since early in the first quarter.

Leonard hit 10 straight points for Toronto, putting the Raptors up 103-97 with less than three-and-a-half to go.

But, a 9-0 run by Golden State, capped by Klay Thompson's three, put the Warriors up three with a minute to go.

Toronto got to within one, but couldn't complete the comeback.

Steph Curry led all scorers with 31 points while Thompson added 26.

Leonard led the way for the Raptors with 26 points and 11 boards.

Kyle Lowrey had 18 while Marc Gasol added 17.

Kevin Durant started the game for the Warriors, making his return to the lineup after missing a month with a calf injury. However, he left early in the second quarter after injuring his leg.

He was seen leaving Scotiabank Arena on crutches. He'll have an MRI Tuesday.

The series returns to the West Coast for Game 6 on Thursday.
