NBA Odds: Toronto Raptors vs. Golden State Warriors, Game 3

by: Staff Writer - posted on: 03-Jun-2019

The Golden State Warriors have evened the NBA Finals with the Toronto Raptors at one game apiece. But at what cost? Several Warriors will limp into Wednesday's Game 3, tipping off from Oracle Arena at 9 PM ET on ABC – and that's not including Kevin Durant (calf), who has yet to be cleared for practice.

Golden State took advantage of some poor/unlucky Toronto shooting to take Game 2 on Sunday, winning 109-104 as 1-point road dogs. But in the process, Klay Thompson hurt his left hamstring, and Kevon Looney suffered a chest contusion. Neither was able to return to the court. Their status for Game 3, plus that of Durant, remains unknown at press time. Stephen Curry also looked less than 100% throughout Sunday's game, perhaps because of an undisclosed illness.

The Raptors will have to shoot better than 11-of-38 (28.9%) from downtown Wednesday if they want to reclaim home-court advantage in this series. They did have OG Anunoby (appendectomy) active for Game 2, although he did not play. Kyle Lowry fouled out of the game for Toronto after playing just 28 minutes; Kawhi Leonard scored 34 points on 8-of-20 shooting, but also turned the ball over five times.
