3 weeks agoToronto Raptors shooting guard/small forward Kawhi Leonard struggled on the offensive end throughout the night but still managed to net 23 points in the 118-109 Game 1 win over the Warriors. Leonard added eight rebounds with five assists with a steal while committing two turnovers across 43 minutes of action. Leonard is battling tendinitis, but even when he was struggling in this one, the Raptors still used their superstar as a decoy. With multiple days rest between games, we can assume Leonard will be fine and we can expect a big night on Sunday for the superstar.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
3 weeks agoToronto Raptors forward Pascal Siakam provided a playoff career-high 32 points in the Game 1 win over the Warriors on Thursday. Siakam made an efficient 14 of 17 from the floor and added eight boards with five assists and two blocks with a steal in 40 minutes of action. Siakam was fantastic on both ends on this night and he had a stretch where he made 11 straight field goals. He was struggling entering this game, but with the small Warriors' lineups, he was able to attack the basket for easy buckets. The Warriors will probably put more Draymond Green on him in Game 2 and it will be surprising if he can duplicate this line in that game.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
3 weeks agoToronto Raptors guard Fred Vanvleet kept the hot hand going on Thursday as he scored 15 points in the nine-point win over the Warriors. VanVleet connected on 5-for-8 shooting with a make from three while adding two assists with a rebound and was a plus-8 across 33 minutes. Which the much smaller lineups of the Warriors, VanVleet was able to rely on more than just threes as he was able to attack the basket throughout the night. VanVleet was also possibly the best defender on Stephen Curry when he was on the floor. He is averaging 15.8 points over his previous four games and if his price tag is still friendly, he is worth a look for Game 2.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
3 weeks agoToronto Raptors shooting guard/small forward Danny Green made some shots early as he scored 11 points in the Game 1 win over the Warriors on Thursday. Green found his confidence as he nailed 3-for-7 from three and 4-for-9 overall from the floor as he added two rebounds with two blocks and a steal in 30 minutes of action. Green scored eight points in the game's first 5:20 and he hit a big three with a defender in his face near the end of the first half. Having Green making shots is a massive bonus for the Raptors and he is worth a look in Game 2 in hopes he keeps it going.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
3 weeks agoToronto Raptors center Marc Gasol provided 14 of his 20 points in the opening half in the nine-point win over the Warriors in Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday. Gasol added seven rebounds with two steals and a block before fouling out in 30 minutes of action. Gasol was crucial on this night at both ends as he took advantage of some mismatches down low and was superb at being the second man on the double teams on Stephen Curry as he was able to roam as he was often matched up with Jordan Bell or Kevon Looney. We can assume the Warriors will make some adjustments for Game 2, with slowing down Gasol on the top of their list.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
3 weeks agoGolden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry connected on 8-for-18 shooting en route to 34 points in the 118-109 Game 1 loss to the Raptors on Thursday. Curry also contributed five assists with five rebounds with a single steal and three turnovers in 40 minutes of action. The Raptors did a decent job trapping Curry on ball screens, yet the sniper still scored 30-plus points for the sixth straight game. We can expect the Warriors to make some adjustments to get Curry even better looks and also to find ways to get Klay Thompson more involved on the offensive end for Game 2 on Sunday.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
3 weeks agoGolden State Warriors shooting guard/small forward Klay Thompson provided 21 points on 8-for-17 shooting from the floor in the 118-109 loss to the Raptors on Thursday in Game 1 of the NBA Finals. Thompson managed to add just five rebounds and just a single assist with two turnovers across 39 minutes of action. Thompson attempted under 20 shots for the first time in seven games and for the Warriors to have a chance to steal a game in Toronto, they will need a more aggressive Thompson in Game 2. Expect him to come out firing in Game 2, making him worth a serious look, especially if Andre Iguodala (calf) misses some time.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
3 weeks agoGolden State Warriors power forward/center Draymond Green recorded another triple-double, but it was not enough in the 118-109 loss to the Raptors in Game 1 on Thursday. Green scored 10 points, with 10 assists and 10 rebounds while chipping in a steal with but did make just two of nine shots from the floor and added six turnovers across 40 minutes of action. Green was called upon to guard Kawhi Leonard for some stretches and even matched up against Marc Gasol and Pascal Siakam at times. If Andre Iguodala (calf) misses time or is limited in Game 2, the Warriors will need to rely even more on Green at both ends.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
3 weeks agoGolden State Warriors shooting guard/small forward Andre Iguodala looked to aggravate his left calf late in the fourth quarter and did not finish the game on the floor in the Game 1 loss to the Raptors on Thursday. Iggy looked great before the injury as he provided six points with six boards and added seven dimes with a block in 29 minutes of action. He was the primary defender on Kawhi Leonard throughout the game and if he does miss some time, it will be a big hit to his club. If he sits Game 2, look for Alfonzo McKinnie as punt play as he should get some extra minutes after scoring six points in eight minutes in this one.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
3 weeks agoGolden State Warriors center DeMarcus Cousins played eight minutes in his first game since April 15 and he did not make much of an impact in the Game 1 Final's loss to the Raptors. Cousins entered the game at the start of the second quarter and managed to provide three points with two assists and two steals while making three of four shots at the line. Cousins looked a little slow out there and it will take another game or two for him to make an impact, but do not be surprised if he starts in the middle as early as Game 2.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
3 weeks agoGolden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant (calf) has already been ruled out for Game 1 against the Toronto Raptors on Thursday. It sounds like Durant is unlikely going to be ready for Game 2 as well. Head coach Steve Kerr said Durant hasn't practiced with the team yet, so he's unlikely to suit up for Sunday's Game 2 contest. Hopefully Durant is able to get out there at some point during this series.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: NBC Sports
3 weeks agoGolden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala (calf) has been removed from the injury report and will play in Game 1 versus the Toronto Raptors on Thursday. Iggy has be given nine days to recover from his minor calf issue. He's going to need to play big minutes with Kevin Durant (calf) sidelined in Game 1. It wouldn't be surprising to see Iggy play at least 30 minutes on Thursday.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: NBA Injury Report
3 weeks agoGolden State Warriors center DeMarcus Cousins (quad) has been cleared to play in Game 1 versus the Toronto Raptors on Thursday. He was a full participant at shootaround, but will likely be limited in this contest. Head coach Steve Kerr has not said whether or not Cousins would start in this game. However, Cousins has not come off the bench for the Warriors yet this season.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Mark Medina
3 weeks agoGolden State Warriors center DeMarcus Cousins (quad) is listed as questionable for Game 1 versus the Toronto Raptors. Head coach Steve Kerr said that Cousins is "pain-free", but remains questionable for Thursday. The Warriors are going to limit his playing time, so don't expect to see big minutes from Cousins in this series. The team is likely going to wait as long as possible to make sure Cousins is 100 percent before clearing him to play.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Ryan Wolstat
3 weeks agoToronto Raptors forward OG Anunoby (appendectomy) has been upgraded to questionable for Game 1 against the Golden State Warriors. Anunoby had his appendix rupture before surgery and the surgery had infection complications, so it's surprising to see him ready to play this soon. Pascal Siakam will still see plenty of playing time, so Anunoby should only see around 12-15 minutes.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Blake Murphy
