Dont Miss End
In Great League history, Warriors v Raptors will go down as the 2019 Finals showdown that was thought to end the Golden State dynasty. Four years later, a lot has changed. No more Kevin Durant in the Bay or Kawhi Leonard in the North. Instead, solid teams on paper, but irregular as possible on the floor.
It’s very simple, the Warriors – reigning champions – now have a balanced balance sheet and must fight every night to keep a qualifying place for the play-in tournament. For the Raptors, it’s even worse, with the main discussions around the franchise mainly consisting of wondering whether the current group should not be imploded at the next trade deadline.
For the record, the Dubs are coming out of a hard-won victory in a match that smells like Playoffs against the Grizzlies, while the Dinos have just clubbed the Kings back to zero for one night. The two teams therefore arrive a priori in confidence… but one of them will inevitably plunge into his doubts at the end of the meeting. Note that Warriors winger Andrew Wiggins, who grew up in the suburbs of Toronto, could return in this game after his absence against the Grizzlies.
