Warriors top Raptors despite blowing 27-point lead

"It happens to everybody". "I shot on these hoops growing up when my pops played here, so I should know [the rims] very well". Casey said the Raptors' last two home games proved they're capable of playing with the NBA's elite.

Curry finished with 24 points, but he's not yet 100 percent.

While fan ballots only count for 50 percent of the total vote-media and the players each receive a 25 percent share of the pie-Durant (1,326,059) and Curry (1,369,658) topped the Western Conference frontcourt and backcourt, respectively, in updated returns released to the public on Thursday. "I don't feel limited out there but you just feel it".

"They key word is believing", Casey said. "Obviously, we wanted to extend that, keep that lead, but they're a good team, and it's hard to win on the road in the National Basketball Association". But had they never reviewed the play, the ending would have been seamless. "A win is a win, especially on a back-to-back".

The Warriors rank second in offensive rating and fourth in defensive rating this season, and they'll provide a stiff test for a Raptors team that has won seven of their past eight games. "In the second half we just buckled down and stayed silent". But officials reviewed the play and found DeRozan was out first when the ball touched him with three seconds to go. DeRozan was one of Toronto's few bright spots with 25 first-half points while Anunoby added 11.

And things really got out of hand when the Warriors used a 16-2 second-quarter run to take a 59-37 lead.

DeMar DeRozan gave the Raptors an MVP-level performance with running mate Kyle Lowry sidelined with a tailbone injury, scoring 42 points and orchestrating Toronto's stirring second-half comeback. But the Warriors held an 81-54 halftime lead.

As things stand, Curry and Durant look like All-Star locks. "You don't win the championship in June, you win the championship from September to May, June, and then you've got to enjoy the process, embrace it and try to get better every time we step on the floor".

Even the absence of sharpshooting star Stephen Curry and a low-key night for fellow Splash Brother Klay Thompson couldn't slow down the best team in the West at the end.

Had the Warriors lost, it would have been quite an upset.
