Green said, “When you are down by 6 points with only few minutes to elimination and the other team winning the championship, you can throw in the towel. We could have folded tonight but instead we held on. I have said before that I have never seen this team fold and that remains true.”
The Splash Brothers managed to have combine 3-pointers during the closing minutes of the game after Raptors had a 6 points lead.
Thompson said, “Even being down by six points with 3 minutes remaining, we did not panic. We just did what we do.”
