What a sweet non-conference match up in the Bay Area tonight with the Warriors hosting the Raptors. The Raptors are hot winning 8 of their last 9 games including their last four.
The Raptors are only 1 game back of the Cleveland Cavaliers for the top spot in the Eastern Conference. Earlier this season at home north of the border in Toronto in a shootout the Warriors beat the Raptors 127-121.
The Warriors had their 7-game win streak snapped on Xmas on the road losing to the Cavaliers in a match up of last season’s finals. They still have the fewest losses in the league, but they are only 1.5 games up on the Spurs in the West.
In their last games the Raptors beat the Portland Trailblazers 95-91 and the Warriors lost to the Cavs 109-108.
The Raptors are a balanced team that ranks 3rd in the league in points per game and 9th in opponents’ points per game.
In their win over the Blazers in their last game the Raptors had a terrible shooting night with a FG% of only 33.7%, but they held the Blazers to 42.2% shooting and forced 18 turnovers.
While Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan only combined to shoot 16/40 from the floor they did combine for 47 points. Jonas Valanciunas went for 12 points and 12 boards and his play inside will be key in this game.
DeRozan and Lowry are each averaging over 21 ppg and they have to score tonight for the Raptors to pull out the upset.
They cannot get into a shootout with the high scoring Warriors and if they do it will be the same result that happened earlier in the season where they took the loss at home.
The Raptors are only 1-10 ATS in their last 11 road games against the Warriors.
This season the Raptors are 11-3 on the road.
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors rank 1st in the NBA in points per game and 17th in opponents’ ppg.
In the loss to the Cavaliers the Warriors did hold the Cavs to only 38.9% shooting while they shot 48.1% from the floor, but they committed a whopping 20 turnovers and gave up 18 offensive boards.
In the game the Warriors led for most of it, but gave up a rally late and were outscored by 8 points in the 4th quarter.
Kevin Durant and Klay Thomson combined for 60 points, but reigning MVP Steph Curry had an off night only going for 15 points on 4/11 shooting.
Obviously the Big 3 are the concern for the Raptors, as Curry, Thomson, and Durant are combining to average more than 71 ppg.
Durant and Draymond Green are each averaging over 8 boards per game and their play in the paint will be key in this game and they cannot give up many offensive rebounds like they did in the loss to the Cavs.
The Warriors are 12-2 at home this season.
