Game Day: Raptors vs. Warriors

NBA.com Preview | Raptors Game Notes | Warriors Game Notes

From NBA.com: Stephen Curry seems to play at his best immediately after showcasing his worst.

The All-Star guard now has a good chance to maintain his hot hand against a team he’s enjoyed great success against in his young career when the Golden State Warriors continue their six-game road trip against the Toronto Raptors on Sunday.

Curry had one of his worst games of the season in a 103-83 loss at Chicago on Wednesday, finishing with a season low-tying five points on 2-of-10 shooting to go with five assists that were somewhat negated by his five turnovers.

It was only the third time this season he has failed to score in double digits, though Golden State (36-23) won the first two of those games. Curry, averaging 23.9 points, scored five at Minnesota on Nov. 6 and had nine at Orlando on New Year’s Eve.
