    Game 5 was a complete mess from the get-go. Kawhi was terrible in the first 3 quarters until he sparked a 10-0 run by himsef; then Coach Nick called the strangest time-out because he wanted to give Kawhi and Kyle a rest before under the 3-min mark where the team would loose a time out. So essentially Nick called a time out for the sake of loosing one down the stretch. But my biggest problem was the one he didn't call in the last possession. Everyone knew Kawhi would get double so it would have been better to let Kyle bring up the ball and then give to Kawhi with 5-6 seconds left on the clock. And I would have benched Danny Green and have Siakim on the court instead. Siakim can at least try to grab rebounds or do a layup if Kawhi passed it out. Oh well.. luckily the Raptors won in Game 6 so this loss didn't come back to haunt them as bad. But it would have been super nice to close out a series at home!!

    American sports all need timeouts.

    Stephen Curry is such a pure gifted shooter that as soon as Kyle Lowry takes the last three point shot to win the game when the ball is at its highest peak in the air Steph Curry starts to celebrate early because he knows that the ball is not going in LOL but this was an awesome breakdown nice work brother

  • I'm Your Huckleberry

    The time out was extremely stupid but burning the clock at the end was the right decision. If you have a chance to go up by 1 or 2 points then you don't want to give the other team time to catch up and get in to a stupid fouling game. The Raptors just didn't execute it properly or it was a stupid play drawn up.

    Tbh the timeout call didn’t seem bad I mean yea they were on a 10-0 run but to be fair they started to cool off and nick called the timeout because they would be gone so why not get your players some rest? To be fair I don’t think it was a bad call it just so happened to not turn out well

    I think it was championship jitters,he (nurse)realized that and to calm himself and thinking the team needs to calm down and rest he took the time out. Forgetting you have been there and done that Kawhi, could have easily sealed the deal. You never take time outs when your team is scoring like clockwork.

    Gasol and kawhi's travel and warriors 2 costly turnovers in the last minute of the game all in favor of the raptors but still the heart of the champion came into play #warriorsallday

    Ill skip the game tomorrow, Warriors will win it I think this series will be drag to 7 games, ticket sales tactics...

    Smart money is still on Toronto's play style getting in the way of Golden State. Last game was a weird, wild one. I still think Toronto will get their feet back under them, frustrate Golden State on defense, and chug along on the attack. Raps in 6!

    I actually thought nurse would man up and admit he blew this game! No, he has been out for two days making excuses for his stupidity. nurse needs to go back to the G-League because he is not ready for the NBA and it is obvious he never will be! nurse, this loss belongs to YOU!

    Idk as a Raptors fan I think the NBA is rigged. Someone or some people with a lot of money and power are probably trying to extend the series for more revenue.

  • Connie B

    If you say coach blew it, I guess so. I think Van Fleet should have taken Curry(warriors worst defender) off the dribble to get layup or foul.

  • Mcdouble Fries

    Raptors must win this game tonight or else Warriors will win it on the road in game 7. Warriors will have the momentum and Raptors players will probably feel defeated just like when the Warriors blew their 3-1 lead against the Cavs. I feel like warriors will win it tho.. no way they are losing all their games at home especially after what happened to KD they will play hard, angry and with a killer instinct to win it at their home court. I see Klay and Curry will go nuclear again just like they did in the last 2 minutes of the last game.

    Who knows what nurse was thinking. Cut him some slack though, hes been amazing. And like Kawhi said, if we won the game no one would be talking about it.

    I hated that momentum killing timeout. I felt that was our moment to put the nail in the coffin. We had them on the ropes. Also, that was great defending by Draymond on that last play.

    5:02 why does everyone keep talking about how Looney is out? People have been saying that for weeks. Btw- Looney said he is going to try to play in Game 6

  • Ryan Chan

    Honestly, when you slow down the plays, you begin to realize how much running Curry does just to get an open look. Then you also see how much contact his defenders are allowed to get away with...

  • Ahmed127

    GAsol was fouled buddy

  • Jafar Martin
    Jafar Martin 4 months ago

    Looney isn't ruled out for game 6. He's listed as questionable & will likely play. And if the reason Tor has was able to have a chance at the end has been bc of ft's and turnovers. Every game except perhaps 1or 2. I see the rapts hit the line constantly. I think in the 1st half game 5 Kawhi had 13 points on 11/12 ft's. The officiating has been not very good in key moments.& the flat out lack of fundamentals and sloppy play has cost gsw all series long. Its been unbearable to watch from a championship level team.

    2:31, Marc gasol with a fabulous double-dribble. Edit: and a travel. Nice.

  • BozanicJosip

    or gasol should've just turned and hit an easy 2 instead of a pass to lowry?

    I wish van fleet would have tried to go around Livingston which would have put draymond in a bind on gasol. He would have had the option to finish at the rim or dump it off to gasol

    Regardless, whether it's a win or a loss, I'll go down with sinking ship. 😎😎🤓
    I'm not gonna be like these bandwagon fans, who left early and already claimed a loss, till Ray Allen hit that comeback three and gave HEAT the chance in the series and won the championship. Those flimsy fans were not able to comeback inside the venue and basically left dry outside. 🤣🤣

      They easily made up for it with the boogie call after van fleet was basically holding him. Neither call there really should have been called
