Warriors' Kevin Durant gives Drake jersey after loss to Raptors

Warriors' Kevin Durant gives Drake jersey after loss to Raptors

The Warriors have gotten their groove back, winning their last three games at home with Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson being the main reasons.

Meanwhile, Kawhi Leonard posted a season-high 37 points to go along with eight rebounds, three assists and the 'W.' The Raptors sit atop the Eastern Conference with an NBA-best 19-4 record.

The Raptors had lost eight straight to Golden State, but that was pre-Leonard, and now Toronto is the talk of the East.

If there was any lingering doubt concerning whether or not Kawhi was back, it should have gone out the window after tonight's performance. Green hopes to be back around the end of the current road trip.

Moreover, Golden State has sorely missed its two-time MVP's services as they struggled with Curry out of commission, going 5-6 in his absence after starting off with a blistering 10-2 start. With 22 seconds left, and the Raptors clutching a three-point lead, Andre Iguodala had a clear path to the basket but was whistled for travelling, and Siakam iced the victory with three free throws in the dying seconds. He was plus-12 over a season-high 33 minutes.

Brandon Ingram scored 14 points and Josh Hart added 13 for the Lakers, who blew an early 24-point lead before James carried them down the stretch to their 10th win in 14 games. He was averaging 29.5 points, 6.1 assists and 5 rebounds and shooting 49.2 percent from three-point range before he was hurt. He even went as far as asking the reporter multiple questions in order to explain how this was just another game on the Raptors schedule.

The Warriors had 38 bench points. On Monday night, the Warriors came back from 18 points down in the third quarter to beat the up-and-coming Orlando Magic, 116-110. Durant did it with the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Warriors.

Durant finished the night with 51 points on 18-for-31 shooting from the field and 4-for-7 shooting from 3-point range, including two extremely hard 3-pointers at the end of regulation to send the game into overtime.

Curry, who has not played since November 8 (Nov. 9, PHL time) after injuring his groin in a home loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, returned to practice earlier this week.

Premature? Perhaps. But the Warriors (15-7) are favorites to win another National Basketball Association title this season despite some recent struggles and the Raptors (18-4) have the best record in the league.

That means that Curry won't play Thursday night in the highly anticipated matchup between the Warriors and Raptors. Withstanding runs and remaining poised in high-pressure situations is crucial, and the Raptors did enough of that to win Thursday night.
