As promised, I’m back with a live diary of game 6 of the NBA Finals. Game 5 feels like five years ago. KD got hurt and already had surgery. The AD trade talks are heating up. Kyrie is reportedly about to go to the Nets. Oh, and there’s a championship to hand out. Earlier today, I picked the Raptors to win this game and I’m sticking with that. I think the emotional toll on the Warriors is just too much. 

If you came here for a Frazier update, I think he’s watching Veronica Mars tonight. Bless his soul. 

Anyways, this is the last game at Oracle Arena, so maybe the Warriors pull this one out. Speaking of Oracle, let’s never forget the greatest moment in the stadium’s history: Kyrie’s shot in game 7. Sorry, but not sorry. 

Ok, time for game 6. Hopefully it doesn’t suck. 

Pregame: 

They resurrected the dude from Train to sing the anthem. Should have gotten Smashmouth. 

I really wish Drake was here. This is more fun with Drake. 

Watching the highlights just reminded me of that Kyle Lowry shot to end game 5. I can’t believe that actually happened. We all just shrugged and kept it moving. I don’t even know what to say. 

Fuck, I just remembered that Klay goes nuclear in game 6s. I have way too much money on the line to deal with Klay hitting every single 3 he takes tonight. 

1st Quarter: 

Looney playing while his shoulder might actually fall off 

KYLE LOWRY WHAT IS GOING ON I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO 

Btw, shout out to Kyle for scoring the first points of the game. I banked on that one. 

Ok, I was NOT ready for the Kyle Lowry game. What is happening. 

Actually, I’m going to take credit here for the Lowry start. He clearly read my last diary. You’re welcome, Toronto. 

The Raptors play better without Drake in attendance: My Column 

This game is already like crack. I need a cigarette. 

Man, so much love to KD. This series would have been crazy with him in. 

Raptors cooking without Kawhi going off. That’s scary for the Warriors. 

Yeah, we got a Klay game coming. 

Kyle Lowry handily outplaying Steph right now. Very strange times. 

HIS NAME IS KLAY 

Game 6 Klay is money. Bet every over on game 6 Klay. 

As I typed that, Klay missed a wide open shot. 

Steph still hasn’t taken a shot, btw. Which brings me to this: Klay would be the Finals MVP if the Warriors win this series. Mark that down. 

BOOOOOOGIEEEEEEEEE 

Warriors stormed right back. Jeez. 

Raptors were on fire and they’re down. I think that’s a bad sign for them. 

A zone defense, eh? 

Mark Jackson has clearly never played the telephone game. 

STEPH ALMOST HIT THAT WOW 

Lord, I need a break. That was intense. 

2nd Quarter:

Nick Nurse is the most Iowa looking guy ever. 

Boogie looks good enough to earn himself a max deal from the Lakers in a few weeks. 

Feels like the Raptors need to take more advantage of this Warriors lineup. 

Boogie going to make me cry with the hustle. 

Raptors are on fucking fire, man. 

Shaft? I’m in, why not. 

Steph gotta turn it up. He can’t get outplayed by Lowry. 

Brutal game from Gasol so far. Warriors are killing when he’s been in. 

This game is stressful and I really don’t care who wins. Warriors keep fighting back. Have to wonder who runs out of gas first. Both Kawhi and Steph have yet to make a huge mark on the game. 

Let Barry Bonds in the HOF, you cowards 

You can’t play Gasol. Pretty clear, Nurse. 

Bump. How do you foul Klay shooting a 3??????

Ibaka has been great. They should keep playing him, IMO 

Lowry is playing the game of his life. 

THE RAPTORS DO NOT STOP 

The Raptors should stop fouling Klay while he’s shooting, I think. Just an opinion. 

Kyle Lowry should head to Vegas after the game. This is crazy. 21 points at the half!!!!! 

That half was so nuts. Best half of the series so far. No clue what’s about to happen. 

3rd Quarter: 

Either Kawhi is about to go nuts or we’re going to get a classic Warriors 3rd quarter run. 

FVV is so clutch and I can’t believe I typed that. 

Thought Steph might be hurt but he just drilled a 3, so....

Raptors look a bit shaken. That Warriors run might be coming… 

WTF just happened lmao. Did Kawhi travel????? 

Love something as much as Dray loves yelling after making a basket. 

BUCKET 

The Warriors are really playing a zone in the NBA Finals lmaoooooo 

Oh no, Kyle don’t pick up your 4th foul like that. 

This commercial with the lady laughing is the worst thing on TV, Apple. Unless you guys want to give me a free iPhone, then I love it. 

Iggy shoots free throws like he’s throwing an actual brick. 

Iggy missing every FT but hits a 3 lmaooooo 

Klay motherfucking Thompson. Dude just hits huge shots all the time. Also, that alley-oop pass from Kawhi was horrendous. 

Game 6 Klay is up there with Flu Game Jordan and Untucked Kyrie. Just a beast. 

Kawhi has an answer for every single Warriors run. 

The Raptors should for sure stop fouling people. 

No, not Klay, man. 

Fuck. That looks bad. Hope Klay is good. 

Hate to say it, but this is one of the biggest “What If” series in NBA history. 

WAIT 

WAIT 

KLAY WOW 

KLAY IS AN ANIMAL 

Man, he has to go get checked out. He’s an animal, but you have to make sure. 

This is just insane drama. Can’t script this, folks. 

Raptors HAVE to go on a run here. 

Let’s be honest, Dray would have to hit a ref with a chair to get a tech in this game. 

Box and 1 vs a Zone in the NBA Finals. Feel like I’m watching HOOSIERS 

Every Iggy 3 feels like it should be worth 10 points 

BUCKET BUCKET 

This last quarter is about to be fucking CRAZY 

Scratch the BUCKET BUCKET smh. 

4th Quarter:

Klay for sure coming back and hitting a DAGGER. I can see it now. 

If the Raptors don’t take advantage of this lineup for the Warriors…. 

You gotta play Steph every minute, man! 

I was about to say Serge was playing great and then he missed a layup. 

The Raptors really didn’t win those minutes. That’s really bad. 

No Klay, wow. If the Raptors don’t close this out…. 

FVV is CLUTCH 

No way the Raptors lose this. NO WAY. If they do…. 

Steph gotta go CRAZY CRAZY. That’s the only hope for the Warriors 

Klay on crutches. That sucks. 

FVV BANG 

WTF are the Raptors doing????? 

Kyle Lowry has come CRASHING down to Earth. 

This is wild because it’s not even Steph cooking for the Warriors. I’m embarrassed for the Raptors.  

Oh, man. That Dray bucket def shouldn’t count. 

FVV is keeping them in this shit. Lord. 

Oh, Steph was OPEN OPEN. Tough miss. 

Kawhi was open too. This gameeeeeeeeee 

This is insanity. WTF was Dray doing????? 

I have the Raptors ML. I am NERVOUS 

FVV IS AMAZING. GIVE HIM FINALS MVP 

(WHERE IS STEPH???? HE KEEPS MISSING SHOTS) 

Draymond passing it to Steve Kerr, who to his credit, is a good shooter. 

Seriously, where is Steph Curry? Would be cool to see him. 

LOWRY WHAT HOW DID THAT GO IN 

DRAY FOR 3

The Raptors can taste it… ITS RIGHT THERE 

Boogie :( 

BOOOOOGGIIEEEE OMG 

Nick Nurse and these damn timeouts. 

I am STRESSED, folks. 

OMG Steph tripped on his own leg, NO WAY. 

This exact moment would be a hilarious time for Woj to drop the news of the AD trade. 

OMG HE THREW IT AWAY NO FUCKING WAY OMG 

DANNY GREEN WHAT ARE YOU DOING BRO 

I’m in shock. How does that happen. 

This is your moment, Steph. Show us what you got. 

THEY HAVE NO TIMESOUTS HOLY SHIT

STEPH YOU WERE WIDE OPEN TOO OMG 

DRAYMOND WEBBER???? 

The Raptors are going to do it. Holy shit. I mean, they should win based off the circumstances, but still. 

They really made that harder than it had to be, good lord. 

BUT LETS TALK BOUT STEPH. I CANT BELIEVE HE MISSED THAT SHOT 

Congrats, Toronto. What a fucking weird series. 

Lmao I’m crying at calling a foul there. Just let them end this, guys. 

The Warriors having to stay on the court while they figure out this meaningless foul is hilarious. 

Until next time, I guess. Cya.
