The Toronto Raptors make the trip out to Oakland to take on the defending champion Golden State Warriors, and the trip is one that hasn’t been kind to the team. The Raptors have dropped 10 in a row at Oracle Arena.
The Warriors could be without Klay Thompson and / or Draymond Green in this one, and they struggled without Thompson on Saturday, finding themselves trailing the Brooklyn Nets by as many as 17 points before coming back to win the game 107-99 in overtime.
The Raptors know how to score the basketball and that’s something they’ll need to show in spades on Tuesday against the Warriors. Toronto’s defense could be the side feeling the pressure, though, but the Raptors rank in the top 10 in the NBA, surrendering 97.1 points per game.
In Sunday’s 107-101 loss to the Sacramento Kings, DeMar DeRozan scored 24 points, and Kyle Lowry chipped in 22 while knocking down six of his 12 shots from beyond the arc.
The Raptors as a team hit on 15 of 31 shots from long range, but committed 16 turnovers and were outscored 52-28 in the paint.
Golden State Warriors:
A stiff back has slowed Thompson in recent week, but he’s expected back for this contest as the Warriors look to start 7-0 at home for the first time since the franchise won its first 10 games of the season at home back in 1980-81.
Thompson scored 45 points and knocked down nine of his 14 attempts from beyond the arc to help the Warriors to victories in both meetings with the Raptors a year ago.
The Warriors are scoring 119.7 points per game and winning by an average margin of 14.7 points in winning its last 10 home games against the Raptors.
Stephen Curry had 32 points and 12 assists in the last meeting on Jan. 2.

4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Raptors +8.5
Golden State has some injury concerns to deal with in this one, but the presence of Stephen Curry makes an upset highly unlikely.
With that said, expecting a depleted Warriors squad to build a margin in this one is asking quite a bit. Don’t be surprised to see the Raptors give the Warriors a run for their money as Golden State looks to extend its unbeaten start.
