NBA Finals: Game time, TV, streaming info and everything else you need for Game 4
The Toronto Raptors took advantage of a hobbled Golden State Warriors team for a 123-109 victory in Game 3. Now with Klay Thompson expected back in the lineup, the Warriors will look to even up the series in Game 4 on Friday.
Without Kevin Durant and Thompson by his side, Stephen Curry had to carry the load for the Warriors on Wednesday. He scored 47 points, while the rest of the starting five combined for just 36.
And while Golden State struggled to find contributors, Toronto’s offense was in sync with 30 assists and each member of the starting five scoring in double figures. Kawhi Leonard has been the glue for the Raptors throughout the playoffs and that continued as he put up 30 points, seven rebounds, six assists, two steals and two blocks.
If Toronto can continue the offensive efficiency it showed, Game 4 should be a more contested battle with Thompson on the floor. He’s made a big difference for Golden State as the team’s second-leading scorer in the series, averaging 23 points per game while shooting 53% overall and 58.4% from 3-point range.

When the Warriors were last down 2-1 in a Finals series in 2015, they went on to win three straight games to take the title over the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The Raptors are seeking their first championship in franchise history, while the Warriors are chasing their third consecutive title and fourth in five years.
There has been a lot of sideline drama in this series so far, with Golden State's minority owner Mark Stevens pushing Kyle Lowry in Game 3 (and being punished for it), as well as Drake and Draymond Green exchanging heated words in Game 2.
