Game Preview: Raptors vs. Warriors


CHICAGO - Zach LaVine scored 14 points in his first game in 11 months, rookie Lauri Markkanen added 19 points and Chicago beat Detroit.

The Air Canada Centre gathering got to cheer when Durant missed a dunk with 2:53 left to play but the Warriors' star came right back with a jam to put Golden State ahead 73-52. "I'm not happy with a moral victory but we've got to can what we had in the second half. and play that way for 48 minutes".

And the Warriors during that span?

Curry re-sprained the troublesome ankle before the loss Wednesday night to the Los Angeles Clippers. My jaw didn't drop.

"Well we don't know what we're doing".

With his team leading 104-101, Randle grabbed a rebound on Lonzo Ball's missed jump shot and scored on the rebound with 18.3 seconds remaining, giving the Lakers a five-point lead they needed to extend a season-best four-game win streak.

Curry finished with 24 points, but he's not yet 100 percent.

While fan ballots only count for 50 percent of the total vote-media and the players each receive a 25 percent share of the pie-Durant (1,326,059) and Curry (1,369,658) topped the Western Conference frontcourt and backcourt, respectively, in updated returns released to the public on Thursday.

Fellow Splash Brother Klay Thompson had 20, fellow MVP award victor Kevin Durant had 15 and Draymond Green had 12 points, eight assists and was an absurd +33 as the visitors built a 26-point lead on a group of Raptors that had just throttled Cleveland and had the East's best home record. The Warriors are first in offensive rating (111.3), the Raptors (107.9) third. "A win is a win, especially on a back-to-back".

During their last five games, the Raptors have scored an average of 117.8 points per game (5.8 above their season average) and allowed an average of 105.4 points per game (1.7 above their season average).

"We just played extremely hard, and we didn't think too much", DeRozan said.

While temperatures were frigid outside, the NBA-best Warriors started off white-hot. It was the Warriors' biggest half of the season and their first 80-point half away from home since November 2, 1990, at Denver (87 points).

Golden State seized control with a 16-2 run to begin the second quarter and led 81-54 at halftime.

But the Raptors didn't lay down, especially behind DeRozan, who notched his 92nd career 30-point game, passing for the most in Raptors history.

Golden State took control of the second early, going on a 10-2 run to take a 53-37 lead 2:37 into the quarter.

As things stand, Curry and Durant look like All-Star locks. "I thought against Cleveland the guys believed they could beat them".

Curry left the door open with a pair of uncharacteristic misses at the line late in the fourth to give the Raptors hope.

Had the Warriors lost, it would have been quite an upset. That should be mentioned more often around the league, but it isn't, which led to a humorous Dwane Casey exchange after shootaround on Saturday morning.
