NBA Wrap: Curry returns to tame Raptors

LeBron James

Thompson poured in 20 first-half points as Golden State used a 25-4 flurry bridging the first and second periods by pull away en route to an 81-54 halftime lead. Curry made up for his earlier misses by hitting two free throws with 2.5 seconds left.

Raptors guard Delon Wright, left, drives against Warriors guard. But there just wasn't enough time as Toronto's rally came up just short in a 127-125 Golden State win. The 133 points scored by the Raptors was a franchise record for most points scored in a non-overtime game, and it was the ninth time this season the team has topped 125 points, also a franchise record. "It caught us off-guard a little bit but we were able to get back to our defensive mentality of being the aggressor in the fourth quarter".

The Warriors rank second in offensive rating and fourth in defensive rating this season, and they'll provide a stiff test for a Raptors team that has won seven of their past eight games.

The Warriors earned their 12th straight road win, improving their road record to 19-3 this season.

OG Anunoby had 17 points, Serge Ibaka 14, Fred VanVleet 13 and Jonas Valanciunas 12 to go with a team-high nine rebounds for the Raptors, who played a third straight game without Kyle Lowry, out with a bruised tailbone.

DeRozan was personally involved in one of the controversial plays, as a ball that was initially called out of bounds off of Warriors star Stephen Curry with one second remaining was instead called off of DeRozan with three seconds remaining following what could be described as a rugby scrum after a crucial jump ball.

Casey was also critical of the officiating late in the game, especially when Toronto's Jakob Poeltl was called for fouling Curry with 45 seconds remaining.

He also denied demanding that Haitians be removed from negotiations about protected status for people from certain countries. Trump tweeted Friday morning: " The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used ".

Warriors: Head to Toronto on Saturday to face the Raptors.

"Like I told [Chris Haynes], man, I'm not talking about no other man's tattoos".

"And I have all the respect in the world for our officials, but when you go in and have that situation, guys fighting their hearts out ... again, maybe they thought we didn't deserve it the way we played in the first half, I don't know".

The kind of basketball Golden State played was downright spectacular, the kind of play you don't witness very often, the way champions conduct themselves. "Some of those calls were bad". He can't seem to shake this back issue, and was forced to sit out on Friday.

"(It's) what we've known all year", he said.

"No sour taste at all", Thompson said of how they won.
