Curry to return against Pistons, says Coach Kerr

Toronto Raptors forward Pascal Siakam attempting to make a basket against the Milwaukee Bucks

Plenty of people referred to Thursday night's clash between the Toronto Raptors and Golden State Warriors as a potential NBA Finals preview.

The on-court conflict continued to the locker room where Green reportedly brought Durant's impending free agency into play and called him a bitch, ultimately resulting in a one-game suspension handed down by the team.

He scored 51 in the overtime loss, showing off some incredible range in the process.

Toronto has now won seven straight games.

Their absence was not felt too heavily because of the brilliance of Durant who, for the first time, scored 40 or more in a third consecutive game.

While the Warriors lost, Twitter heaped a lot of praise onto Durant. "Obviously, it's been three weeks or so, so I'm itching to get back".

Trailing 119-113 with 8.6 seconds on the clock, it was Durant who scored back-to-back threes to force overtime. Draymond Green has also simultaneously missed time due to a toe injury, which has hurt the Warriors during the span.

"If this were a playoff game, he would absolutely be playing", Kerr said.

"We were down early and down big and I just tried to be aggressive and go and get a bucket". Green hopes to be back around the end of the current road trip.

The matchup against the Warriors will hold special meaning to backup center Zaza Pachulia, who won two rings with them the past two seasons.

The 37 points is a season-high for Leonard.

Durant hit a 31-foot 3-pointer to close the scoring in the third-quarter with Toronto leading 96-88. Raptors are better in boards grabbed (46.5 to 45.7), while Warriors are better in dimes made (27.9 to 25.5) and both teams are nearly equal in turnovers committed (14.4 to 14.5).

The Raptors will get the chance to sweep the season series when they visit the Warriors on December 12. In fact, it was arguably the best game of the 2018-19 regular season so far.

Golden State also started off hot - going 10-1 to open the year - before cooling considerably.

"I'm always thinking about Craig, especially when we have TNT games", Kerr said. Ibaka missed a shot to win the game in regulation.
