Raptors GM Masai Ujiri on key to beating Warriors: ‘Pray to God’


The Raptors nearly took the Warriors to the wire a few weeks ago. Toronto had the ball and trailed by only one with 20 seconds left, but Kyle Lowry committed an offensive foul, and Golden State pulled away for a 115-110 win.

As far as games against the 20-0 Warriors, the Raptors fared quite well – and that was in Golden State.

Could Toronto, which hosts the Warriors tomorrow, snap the Warriors’ winning streak?

Jim Rome (hat tip: Zach Harper of CBSSports.com):

It seems at times that’s all you can do against the Warriors, who look unstoppable when they use their best lineups and merely very, very good otherwise.

Though the Raptors’ close loss offers some encouragement, Golden State will have two days off before tomorrow’s rematch. Toronto lost to the Nuggets last night.

Perhaps, if nothing more, the Raptors can challenge and tire the Warriors, who begin a five-game road trip. Then, maybe the Nets, Pacers, Celtics or Bucks can knock off Golden State.

But on a game-by-game basis, Ujiri probably has the best idea.
