Despite losing their second-ever Game 1 under head coach Steve Kerr, the Golden State Warriors felt good after a bruising night against the Toronto Raptors.
In their 118-109 loss, the Warriors looked befuddled trying to attack the Raptors half court defense, which may be the best defense they’ve faced since the 2016 Oklahoma City Thunder.
We’ll see what happens Sunday night, a game in which Kevin Durant will likely not be participating in. Can the champs shed the rust and be more crisp against this very good and intelligent Raptors team?
We’ll see, but one thing Warriors fans should know is this will be their stiffest challenge at this stage. These Raptors are no joke, and it’ll be fascinating how this team that changed the game of basketball will respond.
