Luke Kennard scored two points in 10 minutes and was the only former Blue Devil in action Friday night.
Kawhi Leonard had a monster game, finishing with 45 points.
Game 7 will be on Sunday.
The next game featuring a former Duke player will be on Saturday as Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets kick off their series with Milwaukee and the Greek Freak, aka Giannis Antetokounmpo.
