Golden State Warriors
The Warriors best quarter of Game 1 came in the 3rd where they outscored Toronto 32-29. However, that wasn’t enough to bail them out from the hole they found themselves in. Additionally, every single player that played on the court had a negative plus-minus once the game was over. In fact, the biggest stars came up the shortest. Draymond Green finished -8 with only 10 points on the night, Curry had a -9 night and Klay Thompson was -10. Clearly the absence of Kevin Durant absolutely crippled this team.
Although their shooting from the free throw was exemplary, draining 93.5% of the shots from the line, their shooting from the field wasn’t. So while they were only making 43.6% of their shots, Toronto was making 50.6% of their shots from the field. Naturally this is what set the two teams apart. After all, the Warriors had more rebounds than Toronto on the night.
Players to Watch: Kevin Durant (34.2 ppg, 5.2 rpg, 4.9 apg), Stephen Curry (27.7 ppg, 6.2 rpg, 5.6 apg), and Klay Thompson (19.2 ppg, 3.9 rpg, 1.9 apg).
The Raptors picked up Game 1 off the backs of superior shooting, great outings from their stars, and the 25-points they got off the bench. Fred VanVleet was undoubtedly the sub who contributed the most as he finished the night with 15 points off of 33 minutes play time. Surprisingly enough, Kawhi Leonard was not their biggest points leader. In fact, That honor went to Pascal Siakam who finished the night with 32 points. Leonard did deliver 23 on the night but his shooting could have been much crisper. After all, he made just 5 of his 14 attempted field goals. So how does Toronto pickup Game 2? Well if they manage to outshoot Golden State once again, they should have no problems.
Players to Watch: Kawhi Leonard (30.7 ppg, 8.8 rpg, 3.9 apg), Pascal Siakam (19.4 ppg, 7.1 rpg, 2.6 apg), and Kyle Lowry (14.3 ppg, 5.2 rpg, 6.6 apg).
