The Finals: Warriors vs. Raptors Game 4

Stanley Cup Finals of 2019

Warriors Look to Rebound with Thompson Back

The Golden State Warriors may find themselves on the brink of elimination after Game 4 tonight if they don’t watch it. The Toronto Raptors have opened up a 2-1 lead in this best-of-seven series. After they play Game 4 on the Raptors will return home to Scotiabank Arena for Monday’s matchup. Two of the last three are in Canada.

TV: 9 p.m. ET, ABC, TSN (Toronto) LINE: Warriors -4.5; O/U: 215.

With Klay Thompson (hamstring) active but not playing, and both Kevin Durant (calf) and Kevon Looney (collarbone) unavailable, the Warriors were at a clear disadvantage during Wednesday’s Game 3. They were still 4.5-point home favorites at the close. Toronto outlasted the Warriors 123-109 despite a 47-point effort from Stephen Curry. The Raptors have held Golden State to 109 points in their last two victories.

Thompson was lobbying the team to let him to play Wednesday, but it didn’t work. The Warriors decided to keep him as healthy as possible for a potential return in Game 4. Durant’s status is out and Looney is out indefinitely. For the second straight game, OG Anunoby was active for Toronto, but didn’t see the floor as the Raptors went seven deep for most of the night. Kawhi Leonard led the way with 30 points on 9-of-17 shooting.

This, That, and a Dart Throw

Leonard had his 13th 30-point outing of the postseason for the Raptors. He continues to carry a franchise that now stands two wins away from its first NBA title. One guy who has been feeling it is shooting guard Danny Green, as usual in the playoffs. He scored 18 points on six 3-pointers in Game 3 and is 11-for-22 from behind the arc in the series. Kyle Lowry scored 23 points on 8-of-16 shooting in Game 3 after averaging just 10 points on 6-of-20 shooting over the previous two games.

Guard Stephen Curry was a one-man show in Game 3 for the Warriors. He poured in 47 points for his sixth career playoff 40-point outing. He also contributed eight rebounds and seven assists. DeMarcus Cousins is recently back from a quadriceps injury. It shows as he is averaging just six points on 4-of-17 shooting in the series. Golden State investor Mark Stevens has been banished from the rest of the NBA Finals. he was banned from attending games for the entire 2019-20 season and fined $500,000 by the NBA. This was after intentionally pushing Lowry and showering him with obscenities when the latter flew into the stands chasing a loose ball in Game 3.

The Dart Throw: Warriors 118, Raptors 112
