The Celtics and Raptors will play Game 7 on Friday. The winner of the series will face the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals.
Kyle Lowry is the heart and soul of the Raptors, and he showed why in Game 6. The 2019-20 Toronto team has no quit in them and they are going to fight until the end, led by Lowry and his rugged play on both ends of the court.
It’s incredible the series is going to Game 7. The Raptors were 0.4 seconds away from going down 3-0 before OG Anunoby hit the game-winning buzzer-beater in Game 3 over Celtics small forward Jaylen Brown.
It is also worth noting that Toronto point guard Fred VanVleet famously said Boston “f***ed up” after losing Game 3 since they gave the Raptors new life.
Game 7 will likely be a terrific game, although both teams are going to be tired after what happened in Game 6. In a do-or-die game, strategies and scouting reports are thrown out the door. It’s all about who wants it more and which star players come through in the clutch.
