Golden State Warriors vs. Toronto Raptors, NBA Finals game 4. The Raptors recovered something important by winning game three. The advantage of playing at home was highly important for the Raptors. The team was playing very well on the road, but the great advantage was the absence of Klay Thompson in the Warriors. The home team obviously suffers a lot without Thompson and without Durant. It is unlikely that Durant will return for the game tonight, and it has not yet been confirmed if Thompson will be available.
Toronto Raptors: After this game we return home.
The Raptors have something they wanted in their pocket. Revenge and the advantage of playing at home. Game three of the finals showed that the Raptors do not surrender to anyone. The offensive was brutal, the team won all the quarters, including the third quarter by 5 points 36-31. The weakness of the Warriors was obviously the lack of Durant and Thompson. Tonight the same wound is still open, the Raptors offense should only play like the third game.
Kawhi Leonard received a tough defense from the Warriors throughout the game. But that was not enough, since Leonard was the top scorer in the Raptors with 30 points. Lowry was 5-9 in three pointers and Danny Green with 6-10 in three pointers. The Raptors are scoring an average of 103.7 points per game in the playoffs with 36.56 FG points and 12.00 three pointers.
The ATS on the road record during the playoffs is no longer negative. Now the record is at 4-4-1. The bench has been important in the last games. In game three, the bench contributed 17 points with VanVleet and Ibaka. Against the Warriors in the third game the Raptors were underdogs with +4.5 due to the on-road defeats during the playoffs.
Golden State Warriors: We are champions.
The Warriors can not feel intimidated at home, but apparently the Raptors caused damage to the game three of the NBA Finals. It is not easy to lose at home to the Warriors. But Curry can not alone, that’s obvious. The Warriors barely had the lead in the game at one time. The whole game was dominated by the Raptors. The third game was the number three loss in the post season for the Warriors. The last defeats at home were against the Clippers in the first round of the playoffs.
Curry was the only player to overcome 20 points on the part of the Warriors. 47 points for Curry, he tried to take the reins of the team but it was impossible. Green was the second best with 17 points and 2 threes, Iguodala contributed 11 points. The Warriors at home are scoring an average of 115.0 points in the post season, 40.78 FG points and are allowing 111.6 points per game. With this defeat I finish the winning streak of five games at home.
The ATS record at home is still negative with 3-6-0. Just three point spreads winners in nine games of the post season. The third game is the second time the Warriors can not complete the points as favorites at home. Tonight they will be favorites again.
