Warriors' Omri Casspi (back) listed as questionable for Saturday

14 January 2018

But Toronto, which trailed by as many as 27 points in the game, outscored Golden State 71-46 in the second half.

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 Los Angeles a five-point lead it needed to extend a season-best four-game win streak.

There are no moral wins and this one will be recorded as a loss and yet the Raptors should grow from the experience and learn from the first half.

The truly scary thing about the scoring bonanza: Curry only notched two of those 43 points and just six of the team's season-high 81 in the opening half.

Shell-shocked, schooled, Toronto had no answer with the Warriors playing at such a high level.

The Raptors also got 12 points, nine rebounds and this nifty move in the midst of the Toronto rally from Jonas Valanciunas.

Draymond Green remains the NBA's leader in technical fouls with 11, but he avoided getting T'd up in Saturday's emotional win over the Raptors.

Barring a pregame setback, Warriors point guard Stephen Curry is expected to return from a sprained right ankle Saturday night against the Raptors.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Curry looked good in a full practice session Thursday.

Curry has missed the past two games.

Ibaka was back following his one-game suspension.

The most salient points included questioning the wisdom of Bell and Rogers banishing Raptors games to channels that many don't subscribe to, instead of more easily accessible channels. The Warriors are on a back-to-back and resting players is always a possibility.

Golden State have now won seven of their last eight games.

The Warriors are defending champs for a reason and they demand the best from their opponent. Drake and his pal had to wait a couple of minutes to get to their courtside seats like anybody else would have until a stoppage of play early in the first quarter.

Golden State visits Cleveland on Monday night in a rematch of last year's National Basketball Association final.
