Kevon Looney Will Play in NBA Finals Game 4 After Fracturing Collarbone

Kevon Looney Will Play in NBA Finals Game 4 After Fracturing Collarbone

Toronto's 17 three-pointers tied them for the most by a road team in NBA Finals history.

After his 47-point outburst in Game 3, Curry looked gassed nearly from the start and went just 9-of-22 from the field, including 2-of-9 from downtown, to finish with 27 points.

"We had a good rhythm", Green said. "We got to play better tonight". "As long as we win, I'm satisfied". Stephen Curry had 27 points but it took him 22 shots to get them. The Warriors, desperate to prevent this from being the final game at Oracle Arena, came out playing suffocating defense in the first quarter, and they quickly jumped out to a 23-12 lead.

"Danny comes and goes a little bit, I guess, but you know - and I think like, too, I think a lot of that veteran stuff, Kyle's been great with his emotional makeup this season, and Pascal, for being a young guy, has probably taken the cues from those older guys. But the exact opposite happened, so our defence as a whole has to be better". Klay Thompson, clearly, is a prototypical three-and-D specimen - a three-point shooter with the ability to shut down whomever he's guarding.

Three years after surrendering a 3-1 series lead at this stage to Cleveland, Golden State must now turn the tables the way it did on the Oklahoma City Thunder a round earlier that year. But there are other voids the Warriors won't be able to fill.

That he did so after the developments with McCutchen didn't go unnoticed. "For him to come in here and do that was huge". That homer was also the front end of a set of back-to-back homers against rookie Padres starter Chris Paddack (4-4).

Mention the Knicks these days, and the first name that comes to mind is Kevin Durant, who will be the biggest free agent should he choose to move on from Golden State.

In a play that summed up the first half from an offensive perspective for the Raptors, Marc Gasol missed a wide-open three in the dying seconds.

Toronto Raptors head coach Nick Nurse knows the Golden State Warriors will not relinquish their crown without a fight as his team stand on the cusp of their maiden National Basketball Association championship. They couldn't hit shots either. In other words, when they shoot well, they've got the look of an impending champion. "If it's one of his softer R&B songs, like 'Hotline Bling, ' I'll skip it because I'm in kill mode right now trying to get these four games".

Some Warriors fans either weren't aware they were witnessing the end of a 47-year era, or they were extremely confident their team would force Game 6 with a win Monday, as said fans left Game 4 with time still left on the clock.

Travelling Raptors fans made their presence felt, particularly when the visitors made runs and forced Warriors timeouts.
