Live updates: Warriors vs. Raptors on Saturday night

Warriors guard Curry sidelined with ankle sprain

Steph Curry is officially set to return to action on Saturday evening in Toronto, but the Warriors' star point guard won't have assistant coach Bruce Fraser there to help coach Curry through his pregame routine.

There are no moral wins and this one will be recorded as a loss and yet the Raptors should grow from the experience and learn from the first half.

The Raptors closed the gap to one with 32 seconds remaining, but Durant shut the door with a jump shot after a DeMar DeRozan miss.

Curry, who spent part of his childhood in Toronto when his father Dell played for the Raptors, got a massive ovation when he was introduced, but looked a tad rusty early following his layoff.

Curry is averaging 27.9 points a game, the second-best rank in his nine National Basketball Association campaigns. His teammate Durant sat sixth at 26.4.

Durant (three), Thompson (two) and Curry (two) combined for seven 3-pointers for the Warriors, who shot 58.0 percent overall en route to the 20th victory in their last 23 games.

Fred VanVleet scored 13 points, and Jonas Valanciunas had 12 as Toronto lost for the third time in 18 home games.

Injury report: For Toronto, Kyle Lowry is listed as questionable with a bruised tailbone.

DeRozan finished with 42 points - cracking the 30-point plateau for a club-record 92nd time. The Raptors enter Game 41 of 82 regular season games with a franchise-best 29 victories.

The Raptors have also been strong on the defensive end as they rank third in the league in defensive rating.

"The one thing that we know is it's a process", Green said.

"That's the narrative. We understand that and we accept that". Armstrong pointed out that as co-owners, shouldn't they be trying to generate more interest?

Closing out at home: The game against the Warriors will be Toronto's final game in a three-game homestand.

Draymond Green remains the NBA's leader in technical fouls with 11, but he avoided getting T'd up in Saturday's emotional win over the Raptors. They are playing at a faster pace, and they're shooting the three-ball with more regularity.

"When you do get a chance to see these guys you file it away for later, in case", Kerr said.

In the first quarter, the Warriors scored 43 points, a display of shotmaking that was second to none. Overheard on press row in the second quarter: "It was over before it started".
