Good morning, Big Blue Nation.
Pascal Siakam was the story in the first game as he went absolutely bananas and led the Raptors to a win. One has to think that Toronto was happy with the performance but they would rather have superstar Kawhi Leonard break out tonight.
As for the Warriors, Kevin Durant is still out with an injury. Steph Curry didn’t get much help from his supporting cast and will be looking for some assistance tonight.
