Cute. And a little sassy. I like it. But 1-3 is WAY more important than 4-8. I just don't buy it. Kawhi is an absolute beast though, and if not for him, they aren't even in the playoffs most likely. 

You are really underestimating the Raptors.  Not even a playoff team without Kawhi ? This is a team that has won 59 and 58 the last 2 years and has been 50 plus wins the last 4.  Kawhi has only been there a year.

Kawhi is a top 3 player no doubt, but the Raptors are good, real good.

They are the better team and a Warrior comeback would certainly be a hell of an accomplishment.

What a great game so far. Toronto taking whatever GS gives them. So far 9 of 18 from 3.

There is something special watching how a champion who has been backed in the corner, respond.

GS is really beat up, but they are not going quietly.  The Warriors weather another Raptor spurt and come right back and go back in front.

 

Really good game.  Both teams playing well.

Warriors up 2 after 3, but Klay in the locker room with a knee injury.

 

Raptors went right to a box and one after the injury.

Thompson out for the game.

It’s crazy how bad the luck has been for GS.

Great intensity from both teams.

Green is attacking the boards with incredible energy

 

Van Vleet keeps making big shots.

It's like the Basketball Gods have intervened because they've seen enough of GS winning.

We'll see if that transpires.  Even if they win this game, I can't seem them beating TOR in game 7 without Klay.  Even with him they'd be an underdog.

By video, some doctors on twitter are saying at least an MCL sprain...wouldn’t rule out ACL.

Another potential injury that could greatly effect the offseason and next year.

Even if Thompson tore his ACL, the Warriors likely give him a max deal.

Unlikely they would give him and Durant a max deal if both are out for the year.

GS has been plenty lucky in the formation and sustainability of this dynasty. Stacking a roster in an unprecedented fashion among pretty much all major sports. But they certainly have the heart of a champion and I respect them greatly. I do not remotely feel bad for them though.

I wouldn’t say they have been lucky in that way. They have had guys take less money to be part of something.

Now, they were lucky in the 2015 finals...but they were also unlucky in the 2016 finals.
