Details and Personal Analysis
The Warriors went out to the field of play this time with the reactivation of Durant and took the lead on the scoreboard, but this lasted them very little because Durant resented his injury again in a play where he marked Ibaka, then at the entrance of Cousins who was doing good work Warriors maintained leadership on the scoreboard for some possessions and would go to rest with a partial victory over the Raptors who followed them closely. In the beginning of the second half Raptors would have a reaction, but the Warriors knew how to contain it, intensified their defense and stopped the sending of his rival, when we entered the last quarter Raptors raised their defensive level and through an offensive lapse of Kawhi Leonard who was unstoppable Raptors went up by 3 possessions, but in a dead time requested by Nurse the Raptors technician this did them more harm than good and in a few minutes in an evident defensive drop of the Raptors with 3 shots from the perimeter the Warriors went up and Toronto could not get field shots, the Golden State closing was very good which gave them victory and another life to return home and continue competing for the championship.
