Golden State Warriors vs. Toronto Raptors, NBA Finals game 3. Today is the important game of these finals, the team that wins today will take an important advantage. The Raptors missed the second game to win at home. The Warriors knew how to do damage in each despite being plagued by injured players. Another important doubt for this third game is Klay Thompson after the hard fall in Canada. The Raptors can win tonight if they play better than at home.
Golden State Warriors: With many doubts to play at home.
The Warriors at home have a positive record in the post season with six victories and only two defeats. The last five home games were all victories. Three against the Rockets and two against the Trail Blazers. The second game they won by only five points 109-104 against the Raptors. But in the second game the Warriors were very lucky, as they could barely win the third quarter 34-21. That quarter gave the Warriors victory.
Tonight the big question will be whether Klay Thompson will be available to play. So far the decision if Thompson will be available is for the last hour. Klay was in practice earlier. The Warriors are scoring an average of 115.8 points at home in post season with 41.38 FG points, 83.1% free throw shots, 12.00 three pointers and 28.62 assists.
The ATS record is not favorable at home despite having won the last five games in the playoffs and conference finals. The record is negative with 3-5-0 in the eight games of the playoffs. 3-2 in the last five games.
Toronto Raptors: Problems on the road.
The Raptors have a negative record on the road this post season. Four victories and four defeats in the eight games. Hardly two victories in the last five games. Against the Bucks the team suffered a lot to win the final of the conference. The second game of the finals was in favor of the Raptors in the first half, but in the third quarter the defense was a failure. The Raptors won three quarters but it was not enough.
Tonight the advantage can be taken by the Raptors. The series is tied 1-1 and now is the time to take advantage of Kevin Durant’s injury and Curry’s low performance at home. The Raptors are scoring 101.2 points on the road with 35.75 FG points, 80.8% free throw shots, 11.38 three pointers and 20.38 assists.
The last victory on the road was against the Bucks 105-99 and the Raptors completed +6.5 as underdogs in the spread. The ATS record is negative with 3-4-1 so far. Against the Bucks they could barely complete one of three point spreads. In all the games against the Bucks the team was underdog.
