531 Raptors +3 over Warriors
I still like the Raptors down to +2.5 and even on the ML. In Game 5 you could see that the return of Kevin Durant gave the Warriors a little boost in confidence in the way they were playing and even a little more room for Steph Curry and Klay Thompson to operate and they were able to ride that momentum to keep their season alive despite the terrible injury sustained by KD. Even with the Warriors hitting 20 3s and the coaching mistakes down the stretch by the Raptors, the Warriors still only won by 1 point. Given all the injuries the Warriors are dealing with, the Raptors are the better team and it shows even more on the road. In the 2 games played at home for the Warriors in this series, the Raptors are holding the Warriors to a 103.8 offensive rating. That would rank them 12th out 16 teams in the playoffs and dead last in the regular season and now with the best offensive weapon in KD out for the rest of this series it’ll be difficult for Steph and Klay to have great offensive performances and the box and 1 defense on Steph will be a factor tonight. Also the Raptors offense averaged 114 points/game in the last 2 games at Golden St. led by Kawhi Leonard averaging 33 points in those 2 games. Looking for the Raptors to cover and win comfortably.
