The series shifts back to Oracle Arena on Thursday for Game 6.

The relief was tempered, however, by the loss of Durant, who had just returned to the court from a calf problem after missing nine play-off games, and suffered a right Achilles tendon injury that left him unable to continue.

The two-time defending champion Warriors showed true grit, writes CBS Sports' Jack Maloney.

With the Warriors trailing 3-1 in the NBA Finals, Durant fought to come back from the calf injury and received medical clearance just hours before tipoff.

The Golden State Warriors aren't letting go of the National Basketball Association title just yet.

The incident drew criticism from some Golden State players and observers, including many on social media. "It's not my experience with the people of this city", said Curry, who lived in Toronto when his father played for the Raptors from 1999 to 2002.

Steph Curry led all scorers with 31 points while Thompson added 26. This is what the Warriors do.

But, Kyle Lowrey's three-point attempt from the left corner as time was expiring hit the edge of the backboard, giving the Warriors a 106-105 victory.

Asked how the Raptors would approach a game where the pressue wasn't squarely on them, the coach said they would treat it as though it was the kind of game they had to have.
