Toronto must realize that they had the referees on high alert for contact and rough play. You can't ask for the calls on your drives to create a physical game and not think that the refs would be forced to call the play here. Regardless if Andre initiated the hold or if Lowry locked him, Derozan was having no problems creating his own space all night. You forced the hand of the officials and they had to make the call.
All the talk going forward will be about when the streak might or will be over. Every game the Warriors are getting team's best effort because teams want to be the one to hang a loss on the champs. Especially going into Thursday's game in Los Angeles - the Clippers will bring all they have after losing a few weeks ago in Oakland. Can Golden State stay with this pressure? Last year the expectations were a lot lower, and winning came almost as a surprise. Now, whenever they don't win by 20, we start looking for what is wrong. Maybe it will take a largely hyped game against their rivals to clean up the act and return to focus.
Last night's win was not pretty, but again it did the job. Credit the home crowd again for pulling the team through. And how could they not - those throwback jerseys? My god, they were great. I even heard a few say they should consider wearing them all the time when they make the move to San Francisco. How could I argue with that?
