"We've got to keep moving the ball, we've got to stay consistent moving the ball well and get defensive stops", said guard Tony Snell (11 points).

While the Warriors get the benefit of Steph Curry likely returning to the lineup, Toronto's All-Star point guard Kyle Lowry is now listed as doubtful with a back injury.

Demar DeRozan led the comeback with a huge 42-point, five-rebound, three-assist effort. Trouble is, the remainder of Toronto's lineup accounted for the remaining 16 points as the Warriors shot a sizzling 73.9 per cent from the field (17-of-23) and 5-of-9 from three-point range.

Head coach Dwane Casey has chose to open up his offense a bit this season. "I'm not happy with a moral victory but we've got to can what we had in the second half. and play that way for 48 minutes". It doesn't matter who you play, and they have a great home crowd.

With a record of 15-and-2 the Toronto Raptors have been almost unbeatable at home this season. One second left to go with the world knowing where the ball was headed: To DeRozan for a game-tying attempt.
