The Warriors will be without three key players as they look for a series lead.

The Golden State Warriors and Toronto Raptors are set for Game 3 of the 2019 NBA Finals. The pivotal game, which will break a 1-1 tie, tips off at 6:00 p.m. PT on ABC, Watch ESPN, and the ESPN app.

Ever since the Warriors Game 2 victory, the question had been whether or not Klay Thompson will play in Game 3. Thompson injured his hamstring on Sunday, and was questionable for tonight’s game.

While the Warriors activated Thompson for Game 3, they made a decision to keep him out at the very last minute.

Shaun Livingston will start in Thompson’s place.

The Warriors are now without Thompson, Kevin Durant, and Kevon Looney. It’s going to be an uphill battle for Steph Curry, Draymond Green and Co., even at home. The odds are certainly stacked against them.

On a happier note, the Raptors social media team had a bit of a faux pas, and the internet has been having a lot of fun with it.


So who wins tonight, Dub Nation?
