Dubs eye Bay Area bounce-back

Golden State squares off against Toronto

Kevin Durant turned in one of the great individual performances of the NBA season on Sunday. Ultimately, though, his 36 points and 15 rebounds went for naught in the Warriors’ 109-108 loss to the Cavaliers.

With a little more help from his friends, Durant hopes to once again taste victory tonight. Golden State hosts Toronto at 10:30 p.m. ET, with online sports book Bovada.lv giving Steve Kerr’s team odds of -550 to take care of business. Conversely, the Raptors enter Oracle Arena as +375 underdogs.

Bet on the Action

That Christmas collapse in Cleveland notwithstanding, the Dubs (27-5) keep rolling along in the Pacific Division. In fact, they haven’t dropped back-to-back tilts since April 2015. The Warriors also secured a 127-121 win over Toronto earlier this season. Stephen Curry (35) and Durant (30) combined for 65 points in that triumph.

The argument can be made, of course, that the Raptors are a completely different group right now. Having dispatched two Western Conference playoff contenders to kick off a six-game road trip, the Atlantic Division leaders stride into Southern California with a ton of confidence. Coach Dwane Casey boasts two of the league’s top 22 scorers, too, in DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry.

If you’re talking about prolific tandems, however, Durant and Curry belong at the head of the class. Toronto tends to wander on defense, too, making for a truly perilous situation for the visiting crew. Bank on a double-digit thumping.
