Warriors G will play Saturday vs. Raptors

Warriors G will play Saturday vs. Raptors

The Warriors are 31-6 when they reach the century mark, while the Raptors are 28-5. Toronto now ranks third in offensive efficiency and Golden State ranks fourth in defensive efficiency. With 15 points and 18 rebounds, Toronto's Jonas Valanciunas played well. The Warriors were led by Curry's 30 points, while Kevin Durant added 29 points and Klay Thompson scored 22 points.

There's no line yet due to Curry and Lowry being questionable with injuries. Serge Ibaka returns to the lineup after missing the previous game to serve a one-game suspension.

Curry sprained his right ankle on December 4 in New Orleans and missed 11 straight games before coming back to the floor in a 38-point effort against the Memphis Grizzlies on December 30. The Raptors don't get the hype Cleveland, Boston or Houston do, but they've quietly been one of the best teams in the National Basketball Association this season. Thompson is arguably best two-way shooting guard in the league, and DeRozan has become an offensive machine, averaging 25.0 points per game, trailing only Houston's James Harden (who also grew up in LA) among shooting guards.

Halfway there: Saturday's contest will mark the official halfway-mark for the Raptors in the regular season. The Raptors rank 20th in blocks allowed per game (5.0).

Bench mob: Toronto's reserves had a heck of a night against Cleveland on Thursday. Toronto since November 5 has lost only once at Air Canada Centre, by a single point to Miami on Jan 9, and responded with a 34-point rout of the Cavaliers. Golden State did a terrific job of making free throws (19-22; 86.4 percent). The resulting sprain caused the point guard to miss 11 games, including the Warriors' Christmas Day win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Coverage on NBC Sports Bay Area begins at 3:30 p.m., with tipoff at Air Canada Centre scheduled for 4:35. After Saturday's game, the team will head to Philadelphia for a one-game trip, an afternoon game against the 76ers on Monday, before returning to the Air Canada Centre for a two-game stint next week.
