    It all comes down to one final game at Oracle Arena as the Golden State Warriors take on the Toronto Raptors in a must-win Game 6 of the NBA Finals.

    In order to extend the series and keep their three-peat hopes alive, the Warriors will have to win Game 6 without Kevin Durant. The superstar forward underwent surgery Wednesday to repair a ruptured Achilles tendon after heroically returning from a calf injury Monday to play in Game 5.

    All fans in attendance at Game 6 will receive a special "For Oakland" rally towel. On the towel, the letters "K" and "D" in the word "Oakland" are a different color in honor of Durant.

    "Do it for Kevin," Warriors guard Klay Thompson said after Durant suffered his Achilles injury. "We do it for 'K.' I can tell you this, he wants us to compete at the highest level. We'll think of him every time we step on the hardwood."

    Thursday's game will be the last game ever at Oracle Arena before the Warriors move to the new Chase Center in San Francisco next season.

    With so many storylines on and off the court, it's expected to be an emotional and exciting night for players and fans alike.

    Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf will donate her two tickets to Game 6 to raise proceeds for the Alameda County Food Bank. Fans can bid on the tickets by clicking here.
