Toronto Raptors vs. Golden State Warriors - 1/13/18 NBA Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Stephen Curry injury update Warriors G will play Saturday vs. Raptors

There's no line yet due to Curry and Lowry being questionable with injuries.

Warriors star Stephen Curry will make his return from injury against the Raptors.

How will Stephen Curry look?

Unfortunately, Curry suffered a setback as he rolled that right ankle again in pregame shootaround on Wednesday. Could he have another big game in store? The results for the Warriors have been mixed with a solid win over the pesky Bucks, but a pretty bad loss to the Clippers. There is still reason, of course, to be a bit wary of that balky right ankle.

Steph Curry missed almost the entire month of December after suffering a fairly severe sprained ankle against the Pelicans.

Should Toronto be considered a threat? .

The Raptors easily got past the Cleveland Cavaliers in their last contest, 133-99.

Bench mob: Toronto's reserves had a heck of a night against Cleveland on Thursday. Curry was on the sideline for the second consecutive game but likely will play in one of his favorite arenas, having become familiar with it as child when he father, Dell, was a member of the Raptors. The Golden State Warriors are averaging 115.7 points on 50.7 percent shooting and allowing 106.6 points on 43.6 percent shooting. A fully healthy Curry should help a full-strength Golden State team return to form. Kyle Lowry, who has missed the past two games with a bruised tailbone, is considered a game-time decision. Golden State boasts such a potent offense that, even when its defense is lagging, it can usually pull out wins.

To put that into perspective, 81 points are just 17 fewer than the Sacramento Kings' season average of 98.0 points per game.

When holding opponents under 100 points, Golden State is 11-2 and Toronto is 12-4.

The Warriors are always going to be the Warriors and games (or halves) like this just reinforce their image as one of deadliest scoring teams in league history. That could be a precarious proposition against a Raptors team that ranks third in the league with 112.1 points per game. "That allows us to slack off a little defensively".
