Keys to the matchup

The Raptors’ defense kept Stephen Curry Klay Thompson and Draymond Green contained as they were able to win their first-ever NBA Finals Game. I’ll let Daniel Hackett of Raptors HQ spill the beans here on how Toronto’s individuals did.

On the injury front, OG Anunoby should be back for the Raptors after an appendectomy.

The Warriors are still hobbled by injuries. Kevin Durant (calf) will not play tonight. And Andre Iguodala also has a calf injury but he should be able to play tonight. Expect him to take some of the minutes Durant would have otherwise received.
