Lowry and Raptors bring Warriors to their knees

Serge Ibaka had another strong night with 20 points and 12 rebounds, VanVleet put up 10 and three assists but saved his best work hassling Curry into a rare 10-point night.

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green (23), forward Kevon Looney (5), guard Klay Thompson (11), forward Jonas Jerebko (21), forward Kevin Durant (35), and guard Stephen Curry (30) react on the bench against the Toronto Raptors at Oracle Arena.

"Give our guys credit, they came in ready to play and they fought with great intensity". The Raptors repeatedly beat the sluggish Warriors to loose balls and outrebounded them 48-40.

And the Raptors, without star man Kawhi Leonard, eased to a 113-93 win over the reigning champions.

Kawhi Leonard doesn't appear to be in the holiday spirit just yet.

In running their road record to 12-3 overall, including 7-0 against Western Conference teams, the Raptors built a 57-41 halftime advantage.

When you are young in this type of game always it is hard but I'm not going to focus on him - the team until 2-2 was good. Emery said he wants to move on from this win as soon as possible. "We are happy and enjoying [ourselves]".

The aircraft lost communications for almost an hour, forcing it to make an emergency landing in Germany's Cologne-Bonn airport. It was not immediately clear when a new aircraft would arrive to continue the 15-hour flight to Argentina.

"They are not an up-and-coming team, they are here".

The Raptors' defense was on point throughout the night against a healthy Warriors group that could never find a rhythm. "Move it, swing it, play with some pace", Lowry said. "It's a tough vibe, but they don't get any extra points if we were to face them in the Finals".

"I can't really explain it other than we're now in a place where we are defending a title", Kerr said. It's harder to get up for each game, and so there are certain nights where you can just feel it, you don't have that energy, and if you played in the National Basketball Association, you've coached in this league, you understand it. "I thought we did a good job following the game plan".

A wonky back flared up after the Raptors flew from Los Angeles to San Francisco overnight Tuesday and it wasn't until about an hour before tipoff that VanVleet was cleared to play. Theirs was a carefully tailored game plan executed with purpose-a remarkable thing for a short-handed team on the second night of a back to back.

Toronto used Ibaka inside to bait Golden State into the kinds of double teams it would soon regret. Kerr said Iguodala is day to day but added the team is taking a cautious approach.
