    Wonder if Igoudala will play. Looked banged up last game.
    He is questionable as he looked to aggravate the injured leg. I expect he will attempt to play, but will he be effective on both ends of the court???

      Durant will not play until Game 4 at the earliest. The Media drum beat that Warriors need KD to beat the Raptors is growing and getting louder.

            Gee I'm watching the Whitecaps - FC match and Montero (VAN) just missed on a decent scoring chance.

                  you gotta respect Giannis for that one. he's one of the few superstars in the last decade who is actually likeable. you sure as hell won't see a quote like this from Embiid. Dude acknowledges he got bested and will come back as a better player next year. which will be scary for us but still good too see a young players with a good head on his shoulders and a solid mindset after a disappointing post season

                    I switched to Chauncey over Tabak because even though Tabak played a lot more minutes for the Raps, Chauncey was the one who talked some sense into Lowry that one offseason, and the Raps remind me a lot of the 04 Pistons.

                          Just posted an article from the Ringer in the FVV thread. Goes over the crazy stat of how Curry shot when guarded or not guarded by Freddy.
                          "Curry played 80 offensive possessions Thursday night. On the 47 possessions when other Raptors guarded him, he had 30 points while shooting 7-for-12 from the field and 4-for-6 from 3. On the 33 possessions VanVleet guarded him, he had four while shooting 1-for-6 from the field, missing all three 3s he attempted."

                          I know this may seem like heresy and there's no point fixing what's not broken but...any point in starting Freddy? Putting him on Steph really frees up Kawhi to not have to do that. Fred on Steph, Kyle on Iggy, Kawhi on Draymond, Pascal on Klay and Marc on (insert big here). Might limit the bench point guard play and may be an unneeded slight to Danny when he's just getting his shot back. But maybe it's a fivesome they play a bit more. For reference, the starting lineup played 15 minutes and was -2 while a Fred for Green lineup played 13 minutes and was +10 (half w Marc and half with Serge)

                            I can't see them changing the starting lineup, but I could see Vanvleet getting subbed in earlier in the 1st/3rd quarters - around the six minute mark, or even before then.

                                Green has been effective on Klay too. Subbing him early for FVV when Klay sits and bringing him back for the bench unit Klay anchors makes a lot of sense.
