Toronto hitting way too many 3s.

Cousins looks 37 years old tonight.

He has been terrible on both ends.

Yea he has.  I think he played way too much Sunday night and it probably took its toll

47 for Curry, but at times he has looked alone.

 

And he dives on the floor going after a loose ball down 12.

Van Vleet with a prayer for the dagger.

 

Important for Klay and KD to play now.

Very big win for the Raptors. With both Durant and Thompson out, they had to cash in on their absence to take back home court advantage from the Warriors.

Yea, I think it was a must win.

 

GS was playing without 3 starters and Cousins and Iggy were playing at much less than 100%.  The Raptors had to win this game.

Toronto had to win that game given the circumstances.

Great game by Curry keeping them somewhat close throughout. If Toronto didn't shoot as well as they did, the Warriors could have won thanks largely to Curry.

Yep. Toronto was just on fire last night from 3. Lowry and Green were magnificent. A “normal” game from them and GS probably wins.

If Toronto had simply made open looks in game 2, they'd be up 3-0 right now. 

 

Anyway, still anyone's series, but GS needs reinforcements to get healthy in a big way. They need to take 3 of 4, and Toronto is 2 of 4 away from their first title.

Warriors sound optimistic that both Klay and KD play on Friday.

They get a bit unlucky that the difference between game 3 and 4 is the shortest amount of time between any games in the series. Another day for Thompson would be big.

I think Thompson goes, I still doubt KD will play.

I also think they missed Looney, and the energy he brings around the basket.   

The Raptors have a golden opportunity,  if they let the Warriors escape, they will regret it for years.

It seems like the two most likely outcomes are Raptors in 5 or Warriors in 6, which is a bit odd.

I think this is just funny. He admitted it and it's no big deal.
