The Golden State Warriors are hosting the final game to be played at Oracle Arena with their legacy on the line.

Trailing 3-2 in the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors, Golden State needs to win its final home game to force a Game 7.

The Warriors will have to do it without Kevin Durant, who suffered a ruptured Achilles in Game 5. After missing the Western Conference Finals and the first four game of the NBA Finals, Durant's attempted comeback may have cost him a season.

His Warriors teammates know just how much Durant means to Golden State's success.

Klay Thompson had a message for KD before Game 6 on Thursday night:

"I’m gonna need every Dubs fan in the building tonight to bring the same fire K brought everyday to the court 🔥 😤!! It’s not gonna be the same running out that tunnel without u bro. We all know this is a minor set back for a major comeback !! Nothing can impede this mans greatness. 🐐 Speaking of oracle, let’s lay it all out there tonight in honor the 47 years in this beautiful building . Let’s get it DubNation!" Thompson said on Thursday afternoon.

Thompson and star point guard Steph Curry need to have huge games if the Warriors want to keep their season alive.

Game 6 tips off tonight at 9:00 p.m. ET on ABC.
