Join us for live news and analysis Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. for one of arguably the most anticipated Warriors game this season when Golden State faces the Toronto Raptors at Oracle.
The Raptors (22-7) own the NBA’s best record and have already handed the Warriors an overtime loss two weeks ago in Toronto. However, some of the luster of their rematch could be lost if Kawhi Leonard (hip injury) can’t play Wednesday night. He’s listed as questionable.
The Warriors (19-9) are on a four-game winning streak and are finally just about at full strength after getting All-Star Draymond Green back for Monday’s 116-108 win over the Timberwolves. Green and Stephen Curry both missed the Warriors’ 131-128 overtime loss to the Raptors.
Durant had a huge game in Toronto, scoring a season-high 51 points to go with 11 rebounds and six assists. Leonard keyed Toronto’s win with a 37-point night.
Leonard missed Toronto’s 123-99 win over the Clippers in Los Angeles on Tuesday night with a bruised hip. Point guard Kyle Lowry took up the scoring slack while scoring 21 points in the lopsided victory.
The Warriors’ next game will be in Sacramento on Friday night.
