Friday night's win over the Sacramento Kings was so important because the Toronto Raptors are certainly going to be in tough on Sunday night at 8:30 p.m. ET against the Golden State Warriors.
What to Watch For
- Every time Steph Curry steps on the court seems to be a show these days. He's averaging a league-leading 29.5 points per game and shooting 41.9% from behind the arc. Expect Fred VanVleet to get that assignment, as he did in the 2019 NBA Finals, and potentially some janky box-and-1 again.
- While the Warriors' offense is usually the side of the ball that draws all the attention, Golden State's defense has been the best in the league. While Toronto's offense has been a little bit better than expected lately, cracking the Warriors' code is no easy task.
- The Raptors could get both OG Anunoby and Yuta Watanabe back Sunday. The two have been listed as questionable for the game and their returns would shake up Toronto's rotation once again. If Watanabe, in particular, is ready to go, it'll be interesting to see how he fits in the forward rotation, presumably taking minutes from Chris Boucher and Svi Mykhailiuk.
