If you missed any of the action from Game 6, we had you covered with live updates, highlights and more.

Final: Toronto Raptors 100, Milwaukee Bucks 94

The Raptors have done it! They defeat the Bucks 100-94 to advance to their first ever NBA Finals in franchise history! Kawhi Leonard was incredible, going for 27 points, 17 rebounds, seven assists, two steals and two blocks.

Pascal Siakam's 18 points, Kyle Lowry's 17 points and Fred VanVleet's 14 points helped spark the Raptors offence in the win.

Giannis Antetokounmpo finished with 21 points and 11 rebounds but the Bucks only scored 18 points in the final frame, which led to their defeat.

After a long pause due to shot clock issues, the Raptors lead 97-94 with the ball and seven seconds remaining.

The Raptors hold a 97-94 lead with just 29 seconds to go. Toronto has the ball with a chance to put the game away on this next possession following the timeout.

Buckle up, because we have a good finish on our hands. The Raptors hold a slight 92-90 lead over the Bucks with 3:19 to play. Milwaukee went on a 7-0 run to keep things close.

Kawhi Leonard! He throws it down on Giannis Antetokounmpo to give the Raptors an 87-79 lead. That's a 26-3 run for Toronto, who have flipped this game on it's head.

And that's a quick 7-2 run for the Raptors as they tie the game at 78! Fred VanVleet attacked the hoop for a layup, Norman Powell buried a 3-pointer and Serge Ibaka finished a thunderous dunk in traffic to spark what has been a 17-2 run in total.

End of third quarter: Bucks 76, Raptors 71

The Bucks threatened to blow the game open, leading by as much as 14 in the third, but the Raptors refused to let things get out of hand. Kawhi Leonard took over late in the quarter, scoring or assisting on 12 of the Raptors' final 13 points in the frame.

8-0 run by the Bucks gives them a 63-52 lead with 6:27 left in the third. Khris Middleton buried a ridiculous turnaround 3 in the corner to extend his team's lead.

Milwaukee remains in the lead 57-52 with 8:19 to go in the third quarter. Giannis Antetokounmpo has five points in the quarter including a 3-pointer - he's made two of his three attempts from that range. Marc Gasol knocked down a big 3-pointer, his first shot attempt of the game, to force a Bucks timeout.

Something worth noting: the Raptors are dealing with a bit of foul trouble but it hasn't affected the rotation or mintues - Marc Gasol, Serge Ibaka and Kawhi Leonard all have three fouls.

Halftime: Bucks 50, Raptors 43

The Bucks led by as much as 15 points, but the Raptors have stayed the course and cut that to a much more managable deficit. Giannis Antetokounmpo has 10 points at the half and has a game-best plus-12 +/-. The Bucks continue to knock down the 3-ball, shooting 9-for-18 (50.0%) from long range. For the Raptors, Pascal Siakam leads all scorers with 11 points. Kawhi Leonard has done a little bit of everything with eight points, five boards, three assists and two steals. Fred VanVleet has been great off the bench again with nine points on three 3's.

The Raptors have cut the Bucks' lead to single digits at 39-31. The Bucks are now up to eight turnovers, allowing the Raptors to hang around. Pascal Siakam has 10 points for Toronto on 4-for-7 shooting from the field.

The Bucks lead 38-26 with 6:22 to go in the half. The Raptors are struggling to crack the Bucks' zone defence and they're getting killed on the glass. Toronto is shooting 37.5% from the field with six turnovers and are being outrebounded 22-8.

End of first quarter: Bucks 31, Raptors 18

The Bucks came out firing from long range and it's paid off - Milwaukee is 6-for-9 (66.7%) from beyond the arc to give them a 13-point lead after one frame. The Raptors are missing open shots on the offensive end, shooting 31.6% from the field and 20.0% from 3-point land. Something also worth noting: the Bucks outscored the Raptors 10-2 in the minutes that Giannis Antetokounmpo was on the floor and Kawhi Leonard was on the bench.

The Bucks went on an 11-0 run to build a lead but the Raptors cut into that lead quickly. Milwaukee leads 21-16 with three minutes remaining in the first quarter. The Bucks switched to a zone defence that stifled the Raptors on a handful of possessions but Toronto has done a better job of finding the soft spots and getting open looks.

Scotiabank Arena is rocking early on. The Bucks hold a 9-6 lead on three 3-pointers - Khris Middleton is 2-for-2 from long range to get things going for Milwaukee.

Pregame

No changes for the Bucks either, who will go with their same starting lineup from Game 5 - Eric Bledsoe, Malcolm Brogdon, Khris Middleton, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Brook Lopez.

No changes to the starting five for the Raptors - Kyle Lowry, Danny Green, Kawhi Leonard, Pascal Siakam, Marc Gasol.

The Raptors fans aren't messing around for Game 6. They've been lined up to get into "Jurassic Park" for hours now.
