Warriors’ 3rd-Quarter Surge Sets Up 109-104 Game 2 Win at Toronto

TORONTO, Canada – Andre Iguodala scored a three-pointer with under seven seconds remaining for the Golden State Warriors to seal a 109-104 victory on the road against the Toronto Raptors in Game 2 of the NBA Finals.

The win leveled the best-of-seven series at 1-1, with Game 3 taking place at the Oracle Arena in Oakland on Wednesday.

Having trailed by five points at half time, the Warriors dominated at start of the third quarter, scoring 18 unanswered points to take control of the game and build up a cushion that allowed them to comfortably hold off a late fourth quarter Raptors surge.

“It was a great win. We got to go home and protect our home floor,” Golden State coach Steve Kerr said.

Klay Thompson had 25 points to lead a balanced Golden State offense, which also saw Stephen Curry add 23 points, while Draymond Green was one assist shy of a triple double.

Center DeMarcus Cousins also played a crucial role, particularly considering Kevin Durant’s absence, dominating inside the paint to finish the night with 10 rebounds, 11 points and six assists.

He and Green were especially effective in nullifying the threat of Pascal Siakam, who lit up Game 1 with 32 points, but the Cameroon star could only manage to put up 12 points on Sunday.

“We just tried to be more aggressive. I wanted to set a tone on him and not let him get in a rhythm early,” Green said. “That’s a complete team effort. We threw several different bodies at him.”

Kawhi Leonard scored 34 points and had 14 rebounds on another impressive night, but Kyle Lowry and Marc Gasol were unable to really trouble the Golden State defense, scoring just 13 and six points each.

Much of that was down to Lowry picking up several fouls in the first half, meaning he sat out large parts of the game before fouling out midway through the fourth quarter.

As the series shifts to the Warriors home floor, the Raptors will need to cause an upset and steal a win on the road if they are to win their first ever NBA title.
