Kevin Durant says Toronto Raptors aren't up-and-coming, they're here

Five observations from the Warriors’ 113-93 home loss to the Raptors

In what was one of their most stirring performances of the season, the Raptors blew away the Golden State Warriors 113-93 at Oracle Arena, capping an wonderful two days to start a four-game road trip for the Raptors. VanVleet (back) started after being questionable before the game.

On Tuesday, Nurse said Leonard tweaked his hip in Sunday's loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, per TSN's Josh Lewenberg. Executives from the Clippers have also been spotted at many Golden State Warriors games that did not involve L.A.

Leonard has missed seven games already this season. And 13 of the Warriors' 19 turnovers came from Durant (five), Curry (four) and Draymond Green (four).

The Los Angeles Clippers have been one of the most surprising teams in the National Basketball Association this season, but some members of their front office have not been present the majority of the time to witness their hot start in person. They did fly to Los Angeles but, with nothing on the schedule, it was a rather restful day for the league-leading club.

"It was one of those tough nights".

The Warriors lost their second straight game to the Raptors in two weeks and were so hopelessly outclassed that they sat their starters and went with their reserves late in the 4th quarter. But our pace was great. They've been ballin' before that, and they're going to be ballin' after they beat us. We didn't slow it down.

There was no immediate word on the severity of the injury past a team statement that said he'd suffered a dislocated left thumb. "I thought we did a good job following the game plan".

Golden State's ubiquitous motto of "Strength in Numbers" was on fully display on Wednesday night.by the Toronto Raptors. "It started with one or two stops and then it just trickled on".

The Raptors didn't beat the Warriors on Wednesday night so much as they dismantled them. Theirs was a carefully tailored game plan executed with purpose-a remarkable thing for a short-handed team on the second night of a back to back.
