Following the Raps’ Game 5 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday night, Barkley said on NBA on TNT that he believes Toronto will win Game 6 on its home court Thursday night and push the series to a deciding seventh game.

“Well they’ve (the 76ers) got no chance of winning Thursday, it’s a seven-game series now,” said Barkley, an 11-time NBA all-star.

“Toronto, the way they played (Monday) night, they think they are going to win the series. That place is going to be rocking Thursday. C’mon we need to go do the show from Jurassic Park on Thursday night.”

The Raptors were impressively dominant in their 103-88 win on Monday night to force a Game 6 back at Scotiabank Arena on Thursday night. The 76ers have won three games, while the Raptors have been victorious in two.

Jurassic Park is where fans gather outside the stadium to watch the games together on a big screen.

Previously, fellow NBA on TNT analyst Shaquille O’Neal had stated “Toronto’s getting swept” on the show.

No team has ever come back to win a best-of-seven NBA playoff series after losing three games straight, as the Raptors have done.
