Golden State has yet to win a game midway through their six-game road trip. They last played on Friday, in a 118-106 loss against the Philadelphia 76ers. Toronto, meanwhile, is going through a losing streak of their own. They have lost their last four games including a buzzer-beating Friday night home loss to the Brooklyn Nets, 119-116.
The Warriors and Raptors split the season series after playing each other two times last year. Their most recent matchup was played on Dec. 18, 2021 and resulted in a 119-100, Warriors defeat.
The Dubs performed admirably in their first game without point guard Stephen Curry. Although scoring was hard to come by at times, the Warriors’ mix of veteran and young players gave their best effort against a talented 76ers team.
Tonight, the Warriors will hope they can channel that effort into results as they play a 13-16 Raptors team that holds the tenth seed in the Eastern Conference standings. Although they will be without fellow Canadian Andrew Wiggins for this game, expect Draymond Green and Klay Thompson to suit up and provide some stability to the starting lineup.
It should be a fun game. Enjoy the basketball Dub Nation. GO WARRIORS!!!
Warriors: Jordan Poole, Donte DiVincenzo, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, Kevon Looney
