(As of 12:01 AM)

NBA:

Golden State Warriors  106  Toronto Raptors  105

The Raptors led 103-97 with 3:28 left before the Warriors closed the game on a 9-2 run.

Kyle Lowry had a chance for the win but his three at the buzzer was way off and bounced off the backboard.

Toronto leads the NBA Finals 3-2 with game six Thursday in Oakland.

Kevin Durant (who missed nine games with a strained calf) had 11 points in 12 minutes but left in the second quarter after he injured his Achilles tendon.

Many fans initially cheered the injury before Kyle Lowry, Serge Ibaka and Danny Green waved their arms to quiet them.

Kawhi Leonard had 12 of his 26 points in the fourth quarter as six Raptors scored in double figures.
