NBA Predictions: Can host Raptors upset Durant, Warriors? 1/13/18


Stephen Curry has returned from a two-game National Basketball Association absence to score 24 points while Klay Thompson had 26 as the Golden State Warriors blew almost all of a 27-point lead before beating the Toronto Raptors 127-125. Down one with 45.2 seconds left, it looked like Toronto was off to the races after second-year center Jakob Poeltl blocked Curry's shot at the rim, and the Raptors were going to be able to head the other way with an odd-man advantage.

"We just played extremely hard, and we didn't think too much", DeRozan said.

The defending-champion Warriors (league-best 35-9 record) earned their NBA-leading 19th road win and eighth straight victory over Toronto. After half the players on the court went scrambling for a loose ball, it was initially ruled out of bounds on Curry.

Fans didn't get to see the ending they deserved, and while it may have been the right call, this is one of those you just wish they let go.

But the Raptors are a prideful group and credit Toronto for mounting a fight in the third quarter, cutting the Warriors' 27-point halftime lead into single digits and then making it interesting when the Raps cut it to four with 6:30 remaining thanks to a 14-0 run.

"It happens", Kerr said about Curry's missed free throws.
