Second Half Only:
Rachel’s one on one conversation with Raptors guard, Kyle Lowry!
On KD’s injury and the cheers from the crowd:
“When he first went down, it didn’t look right. I was hoping it wasn’t anything bad. You don’t want a man to be hurt in this type of situation” – Lowry
On keeping his cool with the Warriors minority owner, Mark Stevens:
“I’m a father too. I’m a man and me as a man, no matter what, I’m always going to try to hold myself to a high standard. But you can’t just go out there and just kind of react. You have to think about everything and understand the situations” – Lowry
On playing in big playoff games with the Raptors and not all of them having gone the way he wanted them to go and how that experience made him appreciate how well he’s played through this playoff run:
“Everything happens for a reason. I’ve been through struggles, I’ve had bad series, I’ve had bad shooting games, but I’ve won a lot of playoff games. I’m out here doing a job that I love to do” – Lowry
On his thumb injury:
“It’s the Finals. My teammates believe in me and I believe in them” – Lowry
Stress level for Game 6:
“None. It’s what we’ve done all year. We stay the same. We know what we got to do” – Lowry
On if they win a title:
“I’ll look back on it when I retire” – Lowry
Pressure on Raptors to close out in 6?
“They don’t have any pressure. They’re playing with house money. They have clearly been the best team in this series. Without KD, it’s evident. All the pressure is on Golden State” – T-Mac
“I don’t really buy that there’s some enormous pressure on the Raptors to close it out” – Lowe

T-Mac, could you have done this in your younger years?

“Nope. I’m not down” – T-Mac
Do Boston fans just need to let Jayson Tatum live?
Significance of Kyrie changing agents?
Will sign with Roc Nation
“Changing agents is generally a bad sign for the players’ incumbent team so close to free agency. Roc Nation has a lot of past and present connections to the Nets” – Lowe
“I don’t put too much stock into the Brooklyn connection. But if Kyrie goes to Brooklyn, does that really make them an elite team? I don’t think so” – T-Mac
Expect to see a vintage game 6 Klay performance in Game 6?
“This has been a great series for him. It’s been a vintage Klay series. I expect a vintage Game 6. He’s going to bring it” – Windhorst
“I don’t expect anything different from him. This guy is a performer, when the pressure is on, he steps up to the plate. But I’m worried about the other guys” – T-Mac
Which version of Boogie will we see in Game 6?
“I expect him to carry that confidence [from Game 5] into Game 6. Not having KD, he’s going to have some of that scoring pressure on his shoulders” – T-Mac
“He’s got to bring that road mentality [in Game 5]” – Windhorst
More likely destination for AD: Lakers or Celtics?
Via Adrian Wojnarowski, Brian Windhorst, Zach Lowe and Ramona Shelburne
“If I’m David Griffin, I would have Davis in uniform come start of the season and trade him at the trade deadline” – T-Mac
Bigger X Factor for Raptors: Siakam or VanVleet?
How will KD injury impact Warriors in Game 6?
“What is the Warriors spirit [heading into game 6]? I know they have it within them to rise up” – Windhorst
“They want to prove that they can win without KD” – T-Mac

Trust Draymond to control himself in Game 6?
“Draymond will make it through in Game 6 and he will deliver in Game 7” – Friedell
Board Man Gets Paid
Think Kawhi will break playoff points record?
“No. Unless he has 50 in Game 6” – T-Mac
Key to Warriors forcing a Game 7?
“All the periphery guys have to show up, hit their open shots and help Steph and Klay” – Friedell
