The Golden State Warriors have been playing better basketball as of late. The Warriors are 8-2 over their last ten games. The Warriors beat the Wizards on Tuesday on the road and the Knicks on Wednesday.  Golden State is now 31-27 on the season, which is 10th in the West.

Raptors Looking to Spring Upset

Toronto beat the Nets, Hawks and Pacers, but could not make it four in a row, as they allowed 136 points in the loss to Dallas. In the loss, Toronto saw Luka Doncic go for 30 points on them. The Mavericks scored 30 points or more in all four quarters. The Raptors were leading 67-66 at halftime, but could not keep up offensively.

The Raptors are led in scoring by Scottie Barners. WIth the loss of Pascal Siakam to Indiana, Barnes has stepped up to 20 points per game. Right with him is RJ Barrett, who came over from the Knicks in a trade. Barrett is right around 20 points per game, and 6.5 rebounds as well.

Toronto will host the Hornets on Sunday and Pelicans on Tuesday. After that, the Raptors go out on a road trip. They will make stops in Phoenix, Portland, Denver and Detroit before coming back home to take on the Magic.

Warriors Remain Golden

Some things never change for the Golden State Warriors. They remain one of the top scoring teams in the league, and hit a ton of three point shots. The Warriors are scoring nearly 120 points per game. The Warriors are also making more than 15 three point shots per game as well.

Golden State’s leading scorers remain Steph Curry and Klay Thompson. Curry is averaging 27.5 points per game, while Thompson is at 17.2 per game. Jonathan Kuminga is third on the team with 15.4 per game.

Next for the Warriors is a stop in Boston, before they get to head back home. Once they are home, the Warriors will host the Bucks, Bulls and Spurs.

Raptors Battle at Home

Toronto will compete at home in this game. With the Warriors playing at Madison Square Garden on Thursday, and then having to go north to take on the Raptors, that’s a lot for a veteran team. Look for the Warriors to start slow.

In the end, the Warriors are going to win the game, but our bet here is that Toronto makes it a possession game. We are going to bet the Toronto Raptors +2 over the Golden State Warriors on Friday!
