After losing 2 of their first 6 games of the season the Warriors have won 4 in a row and are back to lighting up teams. They have won their last 4 games by double-digits and have scored at least 125 points in each of their last 2 games.
The Raptors had their 3-game win streak snapped with a close 4-point loss to the defending champion Cavaliers on the road in their last game.
In their last games the Warriors beat the Phoenix Suns 133-120 and the Raptors lost to the Cavs 121-117.
Golden State Warriors
No shock that the Warriors are pouring in the points, but not playing much D, as they rank 1st in the league in points per game and tied for 23rd in opponents’ points per game.
Not only are the warriors winning with scoring, but they are moving the rock well tops in the NBA in assists per game.
In their recent 13-point win over the Suns the Warriors shot 51.7% from the floor, allowing Phoenix to shoot 51.1% shooting, and they hit nearly half of their 33 3-pointers.
The new Big 3 of Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, and Klay Thomson combined for 89 points in the Suns win and Durant and Curry are combining to average over 54 ppg on the season.
Last season the Warriors beat the Raptors twice, but each game was a close one. One thing Toronto has going for them is that the home team is 5-2 ATS in the last 7 games between these teams.
This season the Warriors are 4-1 on the road.
The Raptors are a balanced team that ranks 13th in the league in points per game and 10th in opponents’ points per game.
In their loss to the Cavaliers the Raptors did not have a bad shooting night, but they allowed Cleveland to shoot 53% from the floor. They also forced 17 turnovers, but they need to be more physical in this game getting easy points, as they only attempted 18 free throws hitting 12 of them.
The Raptors are led by the G duo of Kyle Lowry and DeDeMar DeRozan and they combined for 54 points in the loss to the Cavs.
The Raptors can score, but their D will key against the Big 3 in this game. All of the 3 guys are stars and Toronto did not stop the biggest star in the NBA in LeBron James in their last game with him missing a triple-double by only 1 rebound (28 points, 14 assists, 9 boards).
There is a good chance this game will be a shootout and DeRozan and Lowry will need some more help in the scoring department. They are the top 2 leading scorers while the other guys averaging in double figures are Jonas Valanciunas (13.5 ppg) and Terrence Ross (10.1 ppg).
The Raptors are 4-2 at home this season.
