Warriors withstand Raptors comeback in National Basketball Association

Warriors withstand Raptors comeback in National Basketball Association

The two-time MVP is averaging 27.9 points, 6.4 assists and 5.2 rebounds in 28 games for the defending National Basketball Association champions.

The Raptors easily got past the Cleveland Cavaliers in their last contest, 133-99.

The Raptors also dropped to 1-2 without point guard Kyle Lowry, who's day-to-day with a bruised tailbone. Serge Ibaka is the third double-digit scorer and Jonas Valanciunas is grabbing eight rebounds.

The Raptors have also been strong on the defensive end as they rank third in the league in defensive rating. But Durant came right back with a jam to put Golden State ahead 73-52.

Green had 11 points in his return from a 10-game absence due to tightness in his left groin.

There wasn't an unusual disparity in fouls called between the two teams.

Klay Thompson had 26 points while Kevin Durant added 25 as the Golden State Warriors held on for a wild 127-125 road win over the Raptors on Saturday night. The total is set for 226 points. The Warriors controlled the quarter, outscoring the Raptors 38-19 while shooting 71.1 per cent from the field and holding a decided 22-4 edge in bench points over the first two quarters. Toronto, meanwhile, had a much better offensive rebounding percentage (35.4 vs. 19.4).

The Eagles soar into the NFC Championship Game
This can only help this team, a team that has fought for every game they played and for every ounce of respect they have earned. So with all that said, the Eagles best bet is to rely on something they know works and something they have great depth at.

At home, Toronto is 10-7 ATS with 9 overs and 8 unders. Golden State 127, Toronto 125. They are 28-16 after starting the season off 17-13.

All game long, hip-hop recording artist and Toronto native Drake was talking trash to Warriors players from his courtside seat. Curry returning will give Golden State a full allotment of stars and Golden State is 18-3 straight up on the road this season.

In the first quarter, the Warriors scored 43 points, a display of shotmaking that was second to none.

Golden State ranks seventh in rebounds per game (44.7) while Toronto ranks 11th in rebounds allowed per game (42.3).

The Golden State Warriors turned up the heat late on the Milwaukee Bucks before finishing them off from the perimeter. The Raptors enter Game 41 of 82 regular season games with a franchise-best 29 victories.

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).
