Warriors G will play Saturday vs. Raptors

Kevin Durant hit a 19-foot jumper with 21.3 seconds remaining Saturday night, allowing the Golden State Warriors to hold off the Toronto Raptors 127-125 after almost blowing all of a 27-point halftime lead in Toronto.

There was one second left on the clock, and DeMar DeRozan had 42 points on the night. But there just wasn't enough time as Toronto's rally came up just short in a 127-125 Golden State win.

Green had 11 points in his return from a 10-game absence due to tightness in his left groin.

OG Anunoby had 17 points and Serge Ibaka 14 for the Raptors, who rallied from a 19-point deficit through three quarters to make it a one-point game in the fourth.

The Warriors won at Milwaukee on Friday.

Thompson and Draymond Green had 10 points apiece while Durant added nine to lead Golden State to a 43-35 lead after the first, withstanding a 19-point effort by DeRozan.

The Warriors lead the league in scoring (115.6 points per game), while Toronto is third (112.1). With 15 points and 18 rebounds, Toronto's Jonas Valanciunas played well.

But Toronto will have to settle for the moral victory after what looked like a would-be embarrassing loss at halftime.

Curry, who missed most of December with a right ankle sprain, reinjured his ankle Wednesday when he slipped during the team's shootaround.

In the doubles, Belarusian Max Mirnyi and Austrian Philipp Oswald will take on Austrian Oliver Marach and Croatian Mate Pavic. Former US Open champion Del Potro is the second seed in the tournament that he won during his last appearance here in 2009.

Speaking before Friday's game, head coach Steve Kerr said Curry "lobbied" to play but that the team decided he wasn't quite ready. The Raptors are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Saturday games, 7-0 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games.

"It's just what it feels like, period".

Curry finished with 24 points, but he's not yet 100 percent. However, the All-Star guard's assist total was a team high, while his rebound haul drew even with Kevin Durant's for the team lead as well.

For Toronto, point guard Kyle Lowry remained out with a bruised tailbone. With Curry out, the Warriors instead focused on driving to the hoop and gave the Bucks fits at time with cutters.

After Curry missed the two free throws with 45.2 seconds left, Durant's field goal with 21.3 seconds left put Golden State ahead 125-122.

The were playing their fifth game in eight days, their third game in four days and the second of a back-to-back set.

A missed 3 by CJ Miles led to a jump ball, then a scramble for a loose ball that went out of bounds next to the Warriors bench.

Toronto ranks fourth in points in the paint per game (48.6) while Golden State ranks 22nd in points allowed in the paint per game (46.1). Curry was fouled and sealed it with a pair of free throws before VanVleet hit a buzzer-beating 3.
