Cleveland does not lead once to the last seconds of the game but finds a way to win.

James finished 26 points, 13 assists and 11 rebounds. 20 points added JR Smith.
Jonas Valanchianas's 21-points and 21 rebounds, and another double-double, 18 points and 10 assists from Kyle Laurie, and even 22 points from DeMar DeRozan did not save Toronto.

We are taking the Wizards to close this series in game-six. Toronto Raptors has been outstanding from beyond the arc, shooting a solid 42.9% from three-point territory in this series, and we don’t see that changing in this one. Toronto features a multidimensional offense that can also do damage in the paint, as they ranked sixth in the NBA in points in the paint in the regular season, while Toronto Raptors didn’t rebound well in game-five, we are confident they can make the necessary adjustments from a rebounding standpoint as overall they are the better rebounding team.
Washington Wizards has been productive on their home court in this series, and Toronto Raptors has been efficient from beyond the arc throughout the series. The hosts have averaged 114 points in their two home games in this series, and Wall and Beal should have a productive night, plus the over is 4-0 in their previous four games following a straight up loss.
