All the pressure should be on the Warriors, right?
They're the ones down three-games-to-two in the best-of-seven series going into Thursday night's Game 6 of the NBA Finals. They're the team who lost their best player to a devastating injury. They're the ones whose dynasty could be coming to an end.
And yet, FOX Sports' Nick Wright believes it's the Raptors who should play like they're in an elimination game at Oracle Arena.
"If Toronto does not win tonight, the Warriors are going to be champions," Wright said Thursday morning on FS1's "First Things First. "I think if the Warriors win tonight, they will go to Toronto on Sunday and win the championship.
"So while it's an elimination game for Golden State, and it's not for Toronto, Toronto needs to treat this like it is because facing a team with that much experience in a Game 7 will be a killer."

The Warriors have been here before. The Raptors, not much. Outside of Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green, this team lacks experience in the NBA Finals.

While that lack of experience hasn't been a detriment yet, it certainly could be with their backs against the wall in a Game 7.
The Warriors have to take care of business one final time at Oracle Arena first, but if they win Game 6, anything can happen in a Game 7.
