In between they were awful and lost at home. And which Golden State Warriors team will try and even the series on Friday night? Minus a pair of superstars who averaged nearly 49 points per game during the regular season, the Dubs couldn’t keep up in Game 3. We know Kevin Durant won’t play on Friday, but we could see Klay Thompson, increasing Golden State’s odds of leveling the series.

Odds Analysis

The Raptors got what they wanted; now they want more. Getting home court advantage back in their favor with a wicked shooting display on Wednesday to go one up in the series, they probably would have won the game even if Durant and Thompson played, that’s how good they were. They’ve also been good in Game 4s this postseason, going 3-0 with two of those victories coming on the road. Toronto has been a good bet in those games with a perfect ATS record. The Raps are undefeated at Oracle this season winning the regular season tilt by 20 points and taking Game 3 with a 14-point margin.

With or without Thompson the Warriors have been consistent on offense scoring 109 points in all three matchups. What the Dubs missed most in the previous game was his underrated play on the defensive end. Golden State surrendered more than 120 points for just the fourth time this postseason, and one of those got the boost of overtime. The over/unders in this series have been the lowest in any game this postseason, allowing the team to cash the over in all three contests.



The Raptors knew they had an excellent opportunity to grab the series when Thompson was a late scratch. Having the chance and making it count are two entirely different things. The Raps made it count. After not having a player shoot better than 50 percent from the floor in Game 2, every Raptor who took a shot made at least half of them on Wednesday, leading Toronto to its second-highest playoff point total.

Kyle Lowry vowed to be more aggressive and he was. Making an array of shots, the Raptors all-time playoff points leader tallied 23 hitting 8 of 16 overall and 5 of 9 from three-point range. His outburst was just icing on the cake as he joined the other four starters in double figures. Kawhi Leonard scored 30, reaching that total for the 12th time in 20 playoff games. Now that they have the road split, will the Raptors play with the same intensity? That’s always a concern and one I’m sure the club discussed ahead of Friday’s tilt.


I said when KD was injured in the Houston series that the Dubs are probably the only team that could overcome the loss of their leading scorer. They proved me right winning five straight without him. But losing two superstars is something the Warriors couldn’t even fight back from. Thompson got the green light and should suit up on Friday, getting one of Golden State’s key performers back on the floor. In Game 2 Thompson scored a team-high 25 points in Dubs victory.

With Stephen Curry the only consistent scorer, the Warriors couldn’t keep up. But don’t blame Curry, who singlehandedly kept the game closer than it probably should have been. Curry dropped 47 points, the most he’s scored in any playoff game. And they came when the Raptors were keying on him. He likely won’t need to score that many with Thompson by his side, but knowing he can will sure make the Raptors squirm.

With a pair of convincing wins in their first Finals appearance, the Raptors proved that the stage isn’t too big. They also aren’t afraid of the defending champs, no matter who’s on the floor. Toronto has beaten Golden State four times in five games, counting the regular season sweep, outscoring the Dubs by an average of 8.2 points per game. However, the Warriors are a confident group and they should feel even better with Klay set to return. And you know the Raps let out a big sigh of relief after Game 3. That sets up well for the home team to even the series.

NBA Finals Score Prediction: Warriors 113, Raptors 106

In 1896, the Straits Racing Association and Penang Turf Club were established. As a result, horse racing in Malaysia has a rich history.
