Things to keep in mind

  • The Warriors Klay Thompson and Kevon Looney both suffered injuries during Game 2 on Sunday. Looney has been ruled out indefinitely with a fractured collar bone and Thompson is listed as questionable for Game 3 with a sore hamstring. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and Romona Shelburne reported that Warriors officials prefer that Thompson sits out tonight’s game, but Thompson is pushing to be active.
  • DeMarcus Cousins is coming off an unexpected workload in Game 2 due to the injury of Looney. The big man who tore his quad during the first round of the playoffs took the court for 28 minutes and posted a double-double. The Warriors will surely need another strong performance from Cousins with a banged up Thompson and injured Looney to take the series lead over Toronto.
  • The Raptors Paul Siakam greatly cooled down after his historic Game 1 performance where he put up 32 points. Siakam has only 12 points on 5-18 shooting; however, Kawhi Leonard continued his super-star play with a strong 34 point performance. The two will have to get it going at the same time if the Raptors want to stay afloat in this series.
