Check out basketball fans’ reactions to Game 5 of the NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors.

The Golden State Warriors “ain’t dead yet,” one basketball fan proclaimed after the Dubs narrowly defeated the Toronto Raptors 106-105 in Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

The Warriors were down by six with less than three minutes left in the fourth quarter and it seemed that the Raptors had the momentum, with Raptors guard Kawhi Leonard taking over the game. When the Warriors came back and won, fans of the team were relieved they escaped elimination.

“#Warriors escape by the hair of Steph Curry’s chinny chin chin,” one basketball fan wrote.

Another fan wrote, “Warriors go all Houdini and escape Toronto with W! Time for an OFFICIAL final game at Oracle Arena!” They posted a gif of Warriors’ guard Steph Curry doing the Carlton dance while wearing a Oakland Athletics cap.

The Warriors and Raptors will now travel to Oakland for Game 6 of the NBA Finals, which will be the final home game at Oracle Arena now that the team is set to move to San Francisco next season.
