After failing to close out the series and win their first NBA Finals on their home court in Game 5, the Toronto Raptors head back to Oracle Arena, where the Golden State Warriors look to even the series and force a Game 7.
While Oracle has been a tough place to win for most other teams, the Raptors have been perfect there this season as they look to extend this road record to 4-0 Thursday night.
The Raptors have played and won in Oracle three times this season, including both games of the NBA Finals thus far. The only regular-season matchup the Raptors had in Oakland came in mid-December when they won by 20 points against a Warriors' squad at full health.
Both Finals' games played in Oracle haven't been much closer either, with the Raptors winning by an average of 13.5 points per game.
The Warriors have their back up against the wall in Game 6, needing a win just to stay alive. Warriors' fans are also fresh off the incident in Game 5, where Kevin Durant finally returned before suffering a ruptured Achilles tendon early in the second quarter.
Despite this recent history of struggles against Toronto at home, the Warriors are currently favored to win Game 6, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, in search of their first win over the Raptors in Oracle this season.
