The Raptors, led by S. Barnes, have shown resilience and improvement in recent games, posing a challenge to their opponents with their balanced offense and solid defense.

 

Injuries and Player Matchups

Andrew Wiggins is out for the Warriors, which could impact their depth and defensive rotations. The Raptors' Chris Boucher is listed as questionable, and his availability could influence the team's frontcourt matchups.

 

Recent Performances

Golden State Warriors

The Warriors are coming off a victory against the Washington Wizards, but they have had mixed results in their recent games, showing vulnerability against certain opponents.

Toronto Raptors

The Raptors suffered a loss against the Dallas Mavericks in their last outing, but they have displayed resilience and competitiveness in their performances post-All-Star break.

 

Prediction

Despite the Warriors being favored in this matchup, the Raptors have shown improvement and resilience in their recent performances. With the potential return of Chris Boucher and the uncertainty surrounding C. Paul's availability for the Warriors, we predict that the Raptors will cover the +2.5 points spread.

Expect the Raptors to put up a strong fight at home, utilizing their balanced offense and solid defense to keep the game close and potentially secure an outright victory.
