Doesn't sound like McKinnie's return to Warriors imminent

Golden State Warriors vs Toronto Raptors

The Toronto Raptors will welcome the two-time defending champion Golden State Warriors on Thursday night, in a potential preview of the 2019 NBA Finals.

"Right now they're the best, and I expect them to be there throughout the whole season", Thompson said ahead of the game. He's that talented though, where if he starts to feel it, he can get any shot he wants pretty much any time. Toronto overcame a 51-point effort by Kevin Durant, getting a season-high 37 points from Kawhi Leonard and a career-high 26 points from Pascal Siakam.

"Tonight we were down early, we were down big and I just tried to be aggressive and go get a bucket", Durant said.

The new-look Raptors with Kawhi Leonard and co. have the best record in the National Basketball Association at 18-4, but have lost eight straight against the Warriors.

Kevin Durant extended his string of sensational performances with the best yet, dropping in a season-high 51 points on 18-of-31 shooting, including 4-of-7 from beyond the arc.

And there are going to be Leonard rest nights and I'm sure eventually there will be some for Lowry and Green, too, and the Raptors depth is going to be important.

Gary Neville salutes Lucas Torreira after Arsenal’s 4-2 win over Tottenham
The Gunners head into the derby clash in 5th place just three points behind rivals Tottenham who sit in 3rd. He then said he did not know when the injury had started, or whether Ozil was at the ground for the match.

"He's right now entering the point where we can finally say, 'All right, is it time?'" Kerr said. "It's a building block for us, and I'm happy we got the win". He practiced with the team on Tuesday, but coach Steve Kerr has indicated that his return could wait until Saturday when the Warriors visit the Detroit Pistons, the second stop on a five-game road trip. Meanwhile on the other side, the Warriors are 15-7 and just a half-game back of the L.A. Clippers out West. "Once you just focus on that, you get lost in the game".

When you come up short in a game but can take the focus away from the team that beat you for the first time in over four years and now holds the best record in the league, that can surely be chalked up as a small victory.

The short-handed Warriors were without star guard Stephen Curry, who sat for the 11th straight game because of a strained left groin.

"He trusts the organisation, they got his best interests and next game we're looking forward to having him back". I've been in battles with those guys over the last two years. "He's just such a part of the history of this game and a good friend, and we miss him".

The pair ended the night of good terms, though, with Durant gifting Drake his game-worn jersey after the game.
