Thompson got hurt in the fourth quarter Sunday.
I was just in awe of everything.
If fans are sweating Toronto's 109-104 loss on Sunday, the Raptors aren't. They had won five straight since falling behind 2-0 in the Eastern Conference finals.
The Warriors are trying to win their third consecutive championship and fourth in five years. Those players, along with Draymond Green, will be expected to elevate their game. "We understand what this team brings and what type of effort it's going to take to beat these guys". "We lost the game there". Cousins had 11 points, 10 rebounds and six assists in 28 minutes in Game 2.
Shaun Livingston drew the start in Thompson's place and posted just four points on 1-of-4 shooting with zero treys. "It was a great win".
The Warriors might lose one of their most dependable shooters.
This is how bad it's gotten for the Warriors.
Andre Iguodala didn't think twice about letting an open 3-pointer fly. "Certain things that we pick up along the way, that experience will help us with emotional swings from game to game in this series".
Now they have to hope they won't run out of rabbits.
Barack Obama was in attendance for Game 2 between the Toronto Raptors and Golden State Warriors, and the Canadian crowed certainly showed him some love. What was hugely unexpected Sunday was the big contribution from DeMarcus Cousins, who was a non-factor in the series opener after returning from injury.
Kevin Durant has missed the last seven games and was yet to take part in a formal practice, something he needs to do before returning from a strained right calf.
The former POTUS entered the arena with Raptors President Masai Ujiri and sat with NBA Commissioner Adam Silver during the game.
