Kevin Durant Gives Drake His Jersey After 51-Point Effort In Toronto

Warriors, Raptors meet in early showdown

Toronto Raptors forward Kawhi Leonard (2) moves past Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson (11) during the first half of an NBA basketball game Thursday, Nov. 29, 2018, in Toronto. That included a four-game losing streak and tension between stars Kevin Durant and Draymond Green.

Although the game between the Raptors (19-4 now) and Warriors (15-8) may have been another game to the players, it came with a playoff atmosphere. They have won six in a row, including a tough win in Memphis, coming back to beat the Grizzlies, 122-114.

Up by just three points heading into a insane final minute of regulation, Lowry drilled a thrill, but Durant replied with two of his own, his second dagger tying the game with 8.6 seconds to play and sending it to overtime.

Toronto's Norman Powell (left shoulder subluxation) remains out. Greg Monroe (back spasms) is questionable.

It got no better when Jones opened the third quarter. Durant has the edge with his scoring ability but Leonard can lock down anyone on defense. The sixth came Thursday night, and it had more fireworks than any of the others. They will not be matched up on every possession just because of all the switching that occurs on a nightly basis.

Leonard connected on his first six shots and scored 13 points in the first quarter.

Raptors win 131-128 against Warriors in overtime

"I'm always thinking about Craig, especially when we have TNT games", Kerr said. Most opponents have started a low post presence that Jones can handle. "We weren't defending; we were turning the ball over". But Siakam's rebounding abilities could put the Raptors over the top in this matchup.

Golden State trailed by as many as 18 after a red-hot Raptors start, then reeled Toronto in and made things very interesting. On Friday night, they combined for 63 points. The sharpshooting point guard and two-time league MVP will return Saturday night against the Pistons, but what about Green?

But we've seen in the last two games that Nick Nurse is quite willing to go to a nine-man group in the late stages of close games.

The only "statement" was this: Basketball played a high level but its most accomplished practitioners can be a attractive and breathtaking game to watch. As evidenced by their record when leading after one, the Raptors' starting unit has a big hand in dictating the direction in which games will go.

With so much hype and attention around this game, would they lock in immediately? Expect there to be a shootout north of the border.
