Good game. GS looking tough. Keep answering Toronto's little runs here in the 4th. But Toronto isn't just laying down because of that either. Hope they find a way here.

Pushes the lead out to 12 after Klay Thomson's exit. They are so damn good.

That Klay Thompson hammy could be a big deal though, especially if KD remains out or isn't effective. Think Toronto pushes this 7.

Yea it could..they said it was tight. That can alleviate quickly...but “tight” might just be the word they used more than saying what the injury is.

That being said, this was a must win for Toronto considering how things unfolded with the injuries. Looney has been huge for GS, so losing him isn’t anything to sneeze at.

But Thompson being out really hurts them and you don’t find a way to win? When they lose this series, they can point to this game as a big reason why.

Kerr just said it is a hammy pull but Thompson thinks it’s minor.

Oh yea and Curry was sick or something tonight...that was obvious.

Just so much to overcome and for GS to figure out a way and win this game is enormous.

Definitely a huge missed opportunity for the Raptors, but the series is far from over imo.

Obviously the health status of Klay and Durant is pivotal.

I actually think that should Klay not be able to play and KD stays out, the Raptors have a hell of a chance to win the series.

 

GS is a better team by a lot, but not without KD, Klay, Looney and Iggy playing hurt.

 

Sometimes a team wins a championship by surviving the early rounds and by beating a better but damaged opponent.

 

Toronto may be that team in 2019.

If Klay is out and Durant doesn’t come back, I don’t see how GS wins 3 more games unless Cousins is going to go back to the 25-30ppg 10-12 rebounds per game player he was for most of his career.

Yea, that is how I feel.  

 

I am not going to feel too sorry for a team that has won 3 out of the last 4, but wow they have had some bad luck.

Toronto may be that team in 2019.

 

It would be remarkable if the Warriors won without both Klay and Durant.

 

It seems like Durant is likely to return for game 4, and Thompson is super tough, so we'll see with that.

 

I don't think the gap between these teams is nearly as large as you do. Toronto should win if either Klay or Durant don't play again. 

 

They should have won both of these games, but obviously they blew it yesterday. The refs helped with that, but they should have scored more regardless.

If GS is fully healthy, Toronto isn't close to them.  5 game series at best.
