Boston Celtics and Toronto Raptors will face off again tonight at 6:30 PM (ET) at HP Fieldhouse in Orlando for Game 6 of the 2020 NBA playoffs. This will be one of the most exciting playoff matchups of the season as the defending champions are once again against the ropes.
The Celtics have the defending champions against the ropes. The Raptors fought their way back to the series with back-to-back wins but were exposed again by Boston's defense in Game 5.
Now, Nick Nurse's side faces a win-or-go-home situation but they'll need a bigger offensive contribution from Pascal Siakam and Marc Gasol, who have been massive no-shows for most of the series.
